[Sew some trim on the bottom of your shorts to up the cute factor. The lace trim is also a great option if you accidentally cut your shorts off a bit too short. Left- Wildfox, Right- Free People]
[Clip a feather key chain on your belt loop for a fast & inexpensive update. No DIY skills required! Left- Wildfox  Another way to add a pop of color is to hand sew pom pom trim on the pockets. Tip- use embroidery floss and an upholstery needle. Right- Wildfox]
[I love the rocker-glam vibe the lace applique adds. Etsy has tons of appliques to chose from- some are even iron on! Left- DSQUARED2 Dip Dyeing is a great way to make a dramatic change to your cut offs. Just submerge your shorts in a bucket of bleach, rinse thoroughly and then machine wash. Tip- you will only be able to lighten your jeans to white if they are 100% cotton. If your shorts are 2% elastane (spandex) they will lighten but you won’t get the effect pictured above Right- 3X1]
