“I’m a true believer there aren’t any denim don’ts, as long as you style things properly and dress for your body type. With summer here, it’s a great time to take advantage of all the amazing cut-off shorts available, but it’s equally as important to pair them with the right shoes. Cut-off shorts are a day-time look that should be paired with a chic slip-on or gladiator sandal. While we’re obviously showing off our gams by wearing cut-offs, we should also keep it sophisticated, yet fun & casual… This isn’t the time to wear 6″ wedges!
Try to pick a style with a higher rise since this offers a more flattering silhouette when the inseam is already teeny tiny! [BLANKNYC] offers a super chic pair at a really affordable price point—I love pairing these with my K. Jacques sandals.”
