The weather is finally warming up (fingers crossed!) and we’re looking to grab inspiration from the coolest girls on the street. We’ve rounded up some pics of rad ladies styling jean cut-off shorts, which you can check out below. And FYI, if you have a fave pair of jeans you’re looking to make into shorts, try out Denim Therapy’s cut-off shorts service to get the perfect length!
Sadly, we can’t get our hands on these Levi’s shorts (they were thrifted!), but you can substitute Forever 21’s high rise destroyed shorts. In this transitional weather, it won’t be weird if you pair a cropped sweater with short shorts. Seasonal confusion? Nah!
Take a cue from Connie, the blogger behind K is for Kani, and grab an electric blue pair of cutoffs, like these J Brand Cutoff Shorts in Blue Bonnet. Roll ’em up for a more polished edge.
This girl does denim on denim while wearing her fave pair of shorts, and we’ll gladly follow suit with our light summer tees, high-tops, and faded cutoffs (check out these Siwy Camilla shorts).
Style blogger Anouska Proetta Brandon got these true-blue jean cutoffs from Camden Market, but here’s a great pair of vintage cut off shorts from 7 For All Mankind that you an snag sans heavy searching. Top knot optional.
The plain white tee and jean shorts combination is a classic, but this look gets edgy with ragged tights and tons of statement bangles. Australian blogger Morgan got her pair from One Teaspoon, but we’re also loving a similar short from the brand, One Teaspoon’s Original Bandits style.

One of the many reasons why we love denim so much is because it can be an everyday part of your wardrobe no matter what kind of look you are going for. Chiara Ferragni is an influential fashion blogger from Italy who shows us how a great pair of skinny jeans is the perfect thing to wear when you want comfort and style. Thanks to the faded grey wash on these jeans along with the matching knit sweater and ivory coat, there is a great neutral backdrop to be worn when you want to rock a hot & trendy accessory like this electric blue handbag. The skinny jeans also help form a nice silhouette so her shape doesn’t get lost in her loose-fitted top. So remember that when you’re unsure of what to wear to bring your outfit together, your favorite pair of skinnies is always a good option.

Australian denim brand Ksubi produced a video to showcase what women can do in their color denim, if they were able to actually run away from, leap and levitate over cars that seem hell bent on drawing first blood. Entitled “Kolors,” this Summer 2011 collection is expected to drop worldwide any day now. Featuring primary colors like red, yellow and green in skinny jean styles, we gather founders Dan Single and George Gorrow are trying to make a bit of a statement. And, about the video: we think you can do a lot in a good pair of stretchy jeans, but we’ll let you decide whether Ksubi is going to be the next standard for Olympic track & field uniforms.

Bright colors, debonair hats, cuffed denim shorts paired with black dress shoes… this is the kind of menswear you don’t have to think twice about. It works on either coast, it has a hint of downtown-cool, and somehow even the khaki-colored cargo with a skinny-elastic hem doesn’t seem like it’s trying too hard. Meltin’ Pot‘s spring 2011 lookbook has successfully combined the best things about sportswear and come out on top.
We’ll be keeping an eye on them this year. See the full editorial here.
