76 Sassy Summer Shorts

From Tie-Dyed Styles to American Flag Baring Numbers

— May 9, 2012 — Fashion
When the heat of the summer sun becomes unbearable, donning a pair of sassy summer shorts is far more preferable than sweating it out in the full-legged trousers of the colder months.

The warm weather wardrobe staple is continuously reworked and revamped from year to year. Not only that, but the summer time is no longer the only appropriate season for sporting the garment as layering the piece with tights has become an acceptable cold weather fashion statement.

Denim cutoffs are always a popular choice, with men's and women's styles getting shorter and more seductive every year. Scandalous hot shorts are getting a revival this season however, with the addition of fringes, bold patterns and DIY tie-dye accents.

So get out the razors and hot wax to make those legs ready for a bit of sunshine to eliminate that winter white look.
