How to Wear Cutoff Shorts

Cutoffs are a summer staple and like your favorite jeans, are not reserved just for tee's. Looking back at my OOTD photos over the past week I realized I had worn mine several times, each creating a fresh look.

I revamped the classic cutoff look by adding strappy wedges and a dressier tank top.



Throwing on a striped tee, animal print slip-ons and fedora created a laid back vibe.




I dressed up my cutoffs with a floral peplum, wedges, and a statement necklace for a chic date night look.




How do you like to wear your cutoffs?

Thanks for stopping by and reading today!  

I'd love it if you followed along with me on FacebookBloglovin or GFC!

  7. As usual, I love your outfits here Jill! Totally cute, polished, and realistic. :) Those 9W lace-up sandals are awesome! I have seen a lot of pairs of great lace up heels but never flats like that- great choice! (I'll try to remember to come back and link up when the link up opens!)

  20. You always ALWAYS look fantastic in shorts that show your beautiful legs. I adore all 3 outfits. The middle one is my favorite, however you look gorgeous with the pretty floral top and matching necklace for your fun date night. I recently discovered Crystal & Lindsey also and they have great style. I did join their link-up. =)

    I am also showing Shorts on the blog today. Great minds think alike. =) I always think of you when I blog-post a Short's Outfit, just so you know lol.

    Enjoy the weekend!! Ada.

  26. I adore my denim shorts! Thanks for the great style ideas! I don't want to get into a jeans and tee rut again!! Every time I scroll down your post, I keep thinking, "I love this one best". Then I love the next one even more. I have decided that I can not pick a favorite. I love them all! Susan
