Trend Alert: Cut-Off Denims

A major trend this summer are cut-off denim shorts.

Some of us have been economical by sifting through our old denim jeans to recycle and recreate the look. Others of us have hit the stores in hopes of finding the perfect pair already cut and frayed.
I have done both. The pair I'm wearing above are store bought cut-offs from Zara.

I love my denim cut-offs. They are super comfy. But can we all agree that this isn’t a trend one should wear everywhere? Nor are they for everyone, especially the shorter lengths.

Although many of us can argue that we can dress them up with heels, denim cut-offs are best dressed down and worn in a relaxed environment. The retro looking trend is perfect for summer outings like trips to theme parks, walks to the ice creamery with your beau and cookouts with friends and family.

Perfect for this Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial kick-off to summer wouldn't you say?

Fab Chick Tip: When wearing denim cut-offs, make sure that they aren’t extremely tight or too short. Although you might be going a little retro, you don’t want to channel Daisy from The Dukes of Hazards. Let's keep what needs to be covered, covered! Shorts should be slightly loose.

If you’re afraid to put scissors and a razor to your favorite denims, here are a few already created that I love:

L to R: Asos $37.20, The Gap $49.50,J. Crew $79.50, Paige Premium Denim $158, Citizens Of Humanity $198

Will you be sporting cut-off denim shorts this season?
