Trendspotting: Make the Cut-off

Summer cut-off season is in full force. Here are two ways to style your former teenage wardrobe staple in a more adult-friendly way:

Some tips for making the cut-off: 

  • Stay age appropriate by keeping your inseam length equal to or longer than the first number in your age (eg, if you are in your 30s, keep your shorts at 3 inches or longer)
  • Add polish to a typically casual staple by pairing it with a button-down shirt or blazer
  • A cuffed hem allows you to vary the length and adds a nice finish to the look

Whatever your favorite summer weekend activity, a great pair of cut-off shorts can fit the fashion bill. As for me, I'll be rockin' [and rocking out in] mine this weekend at the Garth Brooks concert! Yeehaw!
