If you never had cropped jeans in your summer wardrobe then this is the time to DIY it. These jeans are super comfortable and chic and they could last you all summer. You don't need to buy new shorts, just grab some of your old jeans and some scissors. You can add some fun embellishments like patches and Rhine stones but my all time favourite is embroidery.
