Although it’s almost time to hang up our summery hats and retire all our sunny-weather wardrobe staples until next year (say it ain’t so!), one last summer super-fad has managed to squeeze in before we shift our focus to fall goodies. Slashers – or in other words, super-distressed, slashed jean shorts – show off the extremest of denim cut-offs as they’ve faded, evolved, and gotten even more creative during the course of the season. Whether tie-dyed, dip-dyed, high-waisted, studded, daringly short, or just plain slashed to death, slashers are bringing out the DIY diva in all of us. Of course, if you’re not the crafty type (even when the trend begs for purposeful imperfections!), plenty of our favorite brands have you covered with their own fully distressed masterpieces that are ready to be worn without any further artistic effort on your part! Pair with a flirty blouse or cozy sweater for the perfect casually “undone” look, or use them to top off your bikini bottoms during your last beach days of the summer!
