Trends come and go. To be the “It Girl” takes time and effort. Sometimes I ask myself – Why can’t I lead my own fashion just by wearing what I already have?

I’m sure almost everyone of us has a pair of denim shorts in our closet. It is such a closet staple and such a simple piece. But, did you make the best use of it?
