If you’re planning on keeping it short and sexy this summer, you’ll want to know how to wear denim cutoffs. Staying classy in cutoffs is an art: Stalkers know that one inch too high can spell a fashion disaster. So, here are 7 tips that’ll help you look fabulously chic in your short shorts this season.
1 Keep Them Flat
Ladies, when you’re searching for the perfect pair of shoes to go with your stylish denim cutoffs, flat sandals will do the trick. A shorts and pumps combo is overkill –you want to look hot, but don’t burn them with your heat! I love to pair my cutoffs with colorful gladiators or flip flops for the boardwalk. It keeps the look summery sweet.
2 A Good Fit is Key
One important thing to remember when figuring out how to wear denim cutoffs is that a good fit can make or break your entire ensemble. So, make sure you have enough breathing room (remember: keep your derrière to yourself!). Conversely, you shouldn’t be swimming in your shorts, so try them before you buy them.
3 Take ‘Em to the Beach
One super cute way to wear denim cutoffs is on your next beach trip. Slip them on before hitting the boardwalk or use them as a beach cover up. You can take your one piece on a casual lunch date with the bestie simply by throwing on your cutoffs. Easy, breezy, and oh-so-summery!
4 Dress Them up
If you’re wondering how to wear denim cutoffs to a bar or backyard party, a light and flowy top will take your look up a notch. I always keep a silky white blouse in my closet for these occasions. With an arm party on your wrists, gold gladiators, and a classic clutch, you’ll be totally put together.
5 Dress Them down
If neither a beach date nor a trip to the bar is in order, you can still wear your denim cutoffs without appearing sloppy. My go-to way to pull this off is by wearing my denim with a striped button down. How could you go wrong with nautical?
6 Be Fearless
If you’re plus-sized, don’t let images of emaciated models bring you down! When scouring the racks for a hot pair of denim cutoffs, go for a flattering dark wash and avoid tiny back pockets (they can give the illusion of a larger backside). Shorts can work for a variety of body shapes and sizes if you have the confidence to wear them. And we Stalkers have guts!
7 Don’t Skimp on Sunscreen
Since you’ll be exposing your gorgeous legs, you’ll need to protect them. SPF is a must, so keep the sun’s harmful rays at bay by slathering it on every few hours.
