cut-off shorts for spring + summer
I am always thankful for the warm spring weather, being all too ready for it after the winter. I started my shorts shopping this month and have found lots of cute pairs.
Cut off denim shorts are typically my go-to for summer; here are a few of my favorites for this spring and summer.
SHORT + DISTRESSED
Siwy Maud shorts in "Always With You"
These are very short, but the are slightly longer in back which means their coverage is great. I love the wash of the denim and the distressing. These fit snug and are, as of now, my favorite pair of shorts for this spring and summer.
Siwy Madeliene shorts in "Riders of the Storm"
These are a great distressed black pair of shorts. I love how the pockets hand below the cut-off. The waistband is a little wide on these, and I also found them to be a little wide, so you may want to experiment with size and possible size down one size.
Wildfox Couture Laura Shorts
Joe's Jeans Cut Off Shorts in Deja
Both of these are a little more classy of a cut off short because they are not distressed and have a medium blue wash. I have not tried on either of these and I am personally partial to specifically distressed cut offs so I may not get a pair like this for this spring and summer.
Citizens of Humanity Ana Short
Cut offs can be really short; those Siwy Maud's for example only have a 2.25" inseam! So if you want a little more coverage, the 3" inseam on these Ana shorts by CofH are a great option. The Bonnie Short by AG Jeans is also a good option.
