The denim cut-off deserves a pat on the back. Once the uniform of Coors Light-drinking, bikini top-wearing, flip-flop slapping fun, our beloved chopped jean is making its way up … to Fashion Week street style, and maybe a cocktail hour or two.
Dressed-up denim is great inspiration for shopping your closet. The theme is “opposites attract” – take your most feminine, silky top or your most chic structured piece and pair it with your favorite cut-offs. The shoe can dress it up (for me, a platform sandal) or keep it way down (a flip flop is fair game).
I scoured the sales for this game of outfit Frankenstein (where no model’s hand survives!) and found a few pieces perfect for dress-up/dress-down play:
- Tucker Smocked Collar Blouse ($288) + sass & bide The Wild Denim Shorts ($100 – 50% off)
- Kimberly Ovitz Sawyer Asymmetrical Shirt ($227.50 – 30% off) + Genetic Denim The Hagan High Rise Cutoff Shorts ($92.50 – 30% off)
- Bop Basics The Fiancé Blazer ($198) + Free People Cutoff Shorts ($68)
- Tucker Slim Fit Button Down ($250) + Maison Scotch Pasadena Denim Shorts ($86.80 – 30% off)
Would you ever dress up a cutoff for work or evening … or do you relegate these guys to the weekend?
