Kendall Jenner Just Discovered the Secret to Making Denim Shorts Look Chic

Leave it to Kendall Jenner to make even the most casual of clothing look ridiculously chic. In this case, the item is a summertime classic: cutoff denim shorts. And the way Jenner just styled them is kind of genius, so take notes.

Jenner went with a short pair of black denim cutoffs for a shopping trip in Malibu over the weekend, and the basics she styled them with are key here. In addition to a fitted white T-shirt, she wore a belt, sleek flat slide sandals, and a sweater draped over her shoulders as the pièce de résistance. 

You're probably thinking it's a bit hot for sweaters right now (even one you're not really wearing), but as we start transitioning into fall, wearing a sweater with denim shorts will make a lot of sense. And if you're like me, having a sweater on hand, even on hot days, will help you combat the frigid A/C once you're inside.
