J Brand‘s latest releases include pastel and neon colored jeans, as well as medium-wash blue jean shorts and destroyed white denim cut-offs. The combination of colors and textures add up to equal fresh summer style! Their denim legging capris come in hot pink and lemon yellow, featuring a side zip. The subdued light wash skinny jean is a summer basic that translates from work to leisure with ease. Finally, their cut-off shorts are fun and versatile. The only problem with this collection will be selecting which pieces to buy!
Miley Cyrus was recently spotted sporting her edgy new look and cut-off denim shorts just as short as her boy-length haircut. You can see them peeking out from beneath her shirt. The vocalist was leaving the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, but no one was able to report on exactly why she was wearing silver platform stripper heels. We’ll keep you posted on that. Meanwhile, grab a pair of cut-off denim shorts and show some leg!
Diane Kruger was snapped in the sun at Coachella (specifically the H&M Loves Music Coachella Kick Off Event) wearing a pair of black & white printed denim shorts by H&M. Her shirt and boots were by H&M as well. You’d think she’s the new face of the brand, but in fact, the beautiful Ms. Kruger is the new face of Chanel. A printed tee + printed shorts + don’t-care-hair? Festival perfection.
The artisanal fades and beautiful hues of M2F Denim have gotten an upgrade this spring. They now offer jean shorts, skinny jeans, and denim vests in star printed colored denim. Muted reds, pale blues and sherbet pastels make up this relaxed palette—perfect for spring and summer wear with your favorite tee and a whole lot of arm candy. Obviously, a good pick for the July 4th BBQ too! See the full lookbook below.
Spring’s coming, and we know you’ve got one thing on your mind: cut-off shorts that make your butt look AMAZING. You’re probably eyeing a favorite pair of jeans, wondering if you should attempt slicing them up yourself. But if you want to make sure they’re perfect, leave it to the experts!

We stopped by the Black Orchid Denim showroom yesterday to preview their latest, and were immediately drawn to the refreshing resort wear quality of their tropical and floral printed denim shorts. Visions of sailing on a summer afternoon in a breezy tank and a pair of these cut-offs completely took over, despite the slushy, snowy conditions right outside the window. We’d say that means these shorts achieved their desired impact! Scroll to grab a pair for yourself.
Need a vacation? Take a digital one with GUESS and their spring 2013 ad campaign. They’re bringing mint green jeans back on the scene with a pair of very fresh overdyed cut-off shorts. Shot in Bora Bora, the campaign features Gigi Hadid and Stephan Lambert in P-A-R-A-D-I-S-E. They sprinkled their brand with a bit of bohemian style this time around. We’re digging it.
Ashley Tisdale was recently spotted with an iced coffee in hand, making her way to pick up a dress at Barneys in LA recently. She wore a pair of light wash denim shorts, a knit top, and matching beanie. While the east coast may envy her iced coffee habit at the moment, we can totally rock this outfit by adding a pair of tights to the mix. Bada-bing.
Lady Gaga was spotted wearing a denim bra with a pair of denim cut-off shorts (looking similar to Rihanna’s iconic denim bra moment). Curiously she was not shooting a music video in this get-up, just going to lunch with some friends in the south of France. She looks a little awkward strolling casually in an outfit like this, but she’s never been one to conform, sooo… good for her?
Don’t get us wrong, color blocking and high contrast are both excellent ways to make an outfit pop—but sometimes going the understated route can make the biggest impact. Monochromatic styling requires a bit of bravery (done incorrectly, it could get costume-y), as well as like-hued items to mix and match. If you’re into this look, check our tips below on pulling it off with your favorite jeans this fall—and check out Nasty Gal’s newest lookbook for more ideas.
1. Colored jeans are a shoe-in for this style! After all, you’re more likely to find a top to go with your over-dyed lilac denim than your destroyed dark wash skinnies.
2. Mix textures and variations on your chosen color to keep from looking like a children’s book character. A solid top with acid wash jeans or a printed top with smooth, non-distressed flares will keep you looking chic.
3. Stick with neutral hues to start if you’re unsure: a heather grey is a perfect launch point!
