I have the best summer fashion memories of cut off shorts. I had a great pair of Levi's cut offs-- salvaged from a pair of my uncle's old work jeans-- that I practically lived in all through college. Seriously, there are pictures of me freshman year in those cut offs... and pictures from graduation weekend featuring the exact same shorts.
I don't remember what happened to those shorts, and I haven't owned a pair of cut offs since. As time has passed, I kind of started to think that maybe I was getting too old for cut offs. But, I'm rethinking that notion.
Super fabulous 40-something Cindy Crawford was recently spotted looking perfectly polished in cut off shorts. Granted, I'm no Cindy, but I'm definitely considering snapping up these fabulous shorts. The more refined fringe paired with a slightly darker wash and loose fit make these cut off shorts more flattering than your average cut offs. Plus, Cindy shows a great way to style cut offs in a more mature fashion with a sleek tunic and t-strap flat sandals.
Want to steal Cindy Crawford's cut off shorts style for yourself? She's wearing this season's new Current Elliott Cut Off Shorts. I should have known. Leave it to denim label du jour to create cut off shorts that vibe a little more luxe than your average DIY pair. Very cute, and very summer appropriate.
