Summer Must-Have: Denim Cut-Offs

We've already discussed the return of the denim jacket, but there is another retro denim trend that's producing the rounds and is an absolute have to for summer: Denim cut-offs.

This season, cut-off shorts are shorter than ever, lending a bit of sex-appeal to this fantastically cool item. From dark to distressed from tattered and torn to structured and sleek, there are so may solutions to rock this trend and incorporate it into your style.

Pair your cut-offs having a thin flannel leading for a grungy 90's-inspired style, having a boyfriend shirt like Agyness Deyn, a slim grandpa cardigan like Ashley Olsen, having a sharp blazer for a more polished look like Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss, with billowy tops like Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie, an embellished vest like Nicky Hilton, a lightweight scarf like Hilary Duff, and so on. Cut-offs are perfect for a day at the beach or can be dressed up for a night out with some funky shoes and statement accessories like Vanessa Hudgens who rocked her cut-offs at this year's Kid's Choice Awards.
