Today I wanted to share how I dress up denim cutoff shorts, since I figured I can’t be the only one that practically lives in them once summer rolls in. While I love their comfort and classic look, they are after all a pair of casual shorts. So, I have a few go-to’s for elevating them during the season!
SHOP MY LOOK
My first move is choosing a purse that packs a bit of statement and/or nod to the season. This rattan basket bag is so adorable and only $48.
Next up I ditch the flat sandals for a pair of heels. BUT, I still keep it comfy with low block heels. The exact ones I’m wearing are sold out, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn these-they go with everything and immediately give any look a little feminine twist. I found a similar pair here. Totally recommend having a pair in your closet!
Lastly, I pair the denim cutoff shorts with a more structured and/or detailed top. While a BF tee or tank are my usual choices, stepping up the dressiness of my top is really the easiest way to take denim cutoff shorts up a notch.
I added this broderie high neck top to my cart the second I saw it. It’s the kind of dressier top that still works well with casual shorts, because even though it has a lot of cute details, it has a simplicity to it. Then I added a fun leopard scrunchie and simple gold earrings to top of my dressy denim cutoff outfit!
