Have we mentioned that it’s hot in Dallas right now? Temps hit triple digits last week and everyone in the city sounds like a broken record, noting how sweltering it is while simultaneously wiping sweat mustaches and moping brows. The only way to push through the drama of it all (I’m an expert at coming up with new hyperbolas to talk about how hot I am) is to dress in a way that keeps you feeling cool without loosing style and comfort. For me, this means reaching for shorts as often as I can.
Jorts (jean shorts) have always been my go-to shorts in the summer but I had yet to find a pair of white denim shorts to rotate with blue pairs. I’ll be honest—I wanted, and needed some white jortys but the thought of doing the research of looking across sites, comparing options and weighing differences (brand, fit, price) was something I kept putting off. I was about to give up and drop a fortune on a pair I thought I liked just to get it over with when I found out about Rank & Style. The new-to-me site is a fantastic way to shop if you’re like me and want to see options of items out there before you buy… Top Ten lists are created using algorithms (so high tech!) that pull in reviews, bestseller stats, and editorial recommendations (from bloggers, and the like).
To find my hot pants of choice, I looked at this Top Ten list of White Denim Shorts. Based on the photo and information shown for each pair of shorts I landed on Free People’s Dolphin Hem Cut-offs—the price was where I needed it to be and I liked how they were distressed with a unique side hem. My favorite part about the list (aside form having all my dirty research work done for me) was that the shorts each had multiple sites linked for where they could be purchased. Mine are on sale at Shopbop now for $54! I highly suggest signing up for Rank & Style so you can get their Top Ten lists delivered straight to your inbox. I’m also shopping from theses lists that are perfect for summer style: White Tee Shirts, Waterproof Mascaras, and Coverups.
