20s: Chrissy Teigen

With legs like hers, it's no wonder Teigen, 29, has found more than one way to wear her favorite denim cutoffs.

On April 6, Mrs. John Legend paired the shorts with a chambray top for an easy, breezy, double-denim look that's perfect for the weekend. But then on April 19, the off-duty model went super-glam, teaming the bottoms with a sheer top, a floppy hat, and pointed-toe booties.

30s: Kate Hudson

Maybe we can't all look like Hudson at 36, but we can definitely follow her style cues! The mom of two modeled Candice Swanepoel + Mother cuffed shorts while out and about on April 2, instantly adding polish to her style. A glam halter and booties helped, too.

When she stepped out again on April 29, the Fabletics founder worked her toned body in teeny blue jean shorts, adding super-femme touches via a ruffled Elizabeth and James top, suede heels, and a bouncy ponytail.

40s+: Fergie

Fergie just turned 40 last month, and she's just as fierce as ever. Case in point: The pop goddess chose light-wash denim shorts for her spin around the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival grounds on April 11. A printed scarf used as a belt, a fringed vest, and ankle booties added particularly boho-chic touches.
