An Ode to Denim Cutoffs

Shop summer’s most beloved staple.

Although the weather is yo-yoing across the country like crazy (tropical storm, anyone?), we’re still enjoying our final few weeks of summer and the accompanying wardrobe to go with it. After a spring spent mostly in sweatpants and three-day-old t-shirts, there’s just something about throwing on a breezy summer outfit to help take your mind off the weight of the world. And nothing screams seasonal chill quite like a pair of denim cutoffs.

Whether you prefer a knee-grazing, low-slung pair, or you’re a fan of a distressed Daisy Dukeinspired look, jean shorts capture that element of quintessential Americana like few other wardrobe staples. But finding the right pair is also challenging, to say the least. If regular jeans give you grief, then you already know that shorts take it to a whole new level. We’re partial to the trial-and-error mindset—and once you find the brand that seems to fit your bum *just right*, we recommend filling up your online cart and never looking back. Then it’s just a question of whether you want to pair them with your favorite vintage t-shirt, a gauzy white blouse, a minimalist tank top, or even a strapless crop top. You truly can’t go wrong.
