Cut Off Date

As Memorial Day and summer inch closer it’s time to shed the layers for lighter summer wear.   A great way to show off sun kissed legs is with a pair of cut off jean shorts.  Here are a few tips to creating your own custom pair.

  1. Grab an old pair of boyfriend or relaxed fit Jeans, preferably Men’s. We like Levi’s 501
  2. Cut off the legs of the jeans at a slight angle at your desired length
  3. Grab a cheese grater, a block of sand paper and your scissors
  4. Cut horizontal slits where you’d like to have some fraying. Rub sandpaper or a cheese grater over the area
  5. Throw the shorts in the wash. Ta-da you have your own custom, destroyed denim shorts

Try this look for day with a cropped tee and some embellished sandals, like Rihanna did at Coachella 2012…
