Picture this: It’s 2013, you’ve scored tickets to your favorite music festival , and you’ve got your denim shorts in tow. But, not just any denim shorts…the kind of denim shorts that would ~trigger~ you in 2023. We’re talking statement denim that was extra AF, but somehow had a special place in nearly everyone’s wardrobe back in the day. Well, they’re back.
Yes, studded shorts, ombré shorts, and even neon denim shorts are back in full force. TikTok user, @lilccondabeat_, called out the trend on the app while shopping on Urban Outfitters’ site. As soon as it landed on our FYP, it was time to check out the options of shorts for ourselves. Low and behold, there are now a variety of intense denim shorts that you would’ve easily rocked in college. If you need a friendly reminder of just how bold these shorts were, just take a look at how celebs proudly wore them at Coachella and beyond. Wanna feel really old? They’re now calling these vintage—the audacity.
