Like the great jeans they're born from, a good pair of cutoffs wields major styling potential. Our Summer is dotted with opportunities to pull out our favorite pairs and wear them with practically anything. We got cool Resin denim designer Chantel to show us how to make the best cutoff short from our own jeans, and now it's time to style them out. For inspiration, we gathered up some of our favorite celebrity cutoff moments to keep your '80s flashbacks at bay and inspire only the chicest and coolest cutoff looks. Click to see.
We showed you the stylish Summer appeal of cutoffs and how to wear them, but do you know how to make the best cutoff short from those old jeans of yours? We turned to one of the hippest chicks we know, Chantel Valentene, who is the designer behind premium denim label Resin. Resin denim — sold at boutiques like Shopbop and Barneys — is known for incredible feel and impeccable fit, so we asked Chantel — with her foolproof tips for making cutoff shorts for Summer that won't be too short, too long, or too uneven — to be our resident cutoffs expert (and model).
How to make perfect cutoffs after the jump,
Thanks to a r i, I know what to wear to the No Doubt concert this weekend. Her outfit is simple, just a tee and cutoffs, but I like how she accessorized it with a trusty topper, cute sandals, layered necklaces, and stacked bangles. I'm walking into spiderwebs . . .
Here's what she has on:
Sandals: Steve Madden
Handbag: Joe's Jeans
Congrats to a r i !
Everyone else, submit your looks and I might feature you on FabSugar!
The adorable Christina Ricci left the gym looking mighty cute and non-sporty in her light blue plaid Splendid shirt, cutoff shorts, and Sigerson Morrison gold sandals. Wouldn't it be nice if every gym buff left their sneakers and sports bras in the . . . gym? I think so! The actress completed her casually nonchalant look with a cool cream bag, a star necklace, and Dita sunnies.
