DIY These Cut-Off Shorts For Summer


Nothing says summer like a pair of cut-off shorts that you can wear from the beach to brunch and beyond, but let’s face it: not everyone wants to drop their hard-earned money on designer jeans. If you’ve got a pair of cheap old jeans that are unloved in the back of your wardrobe, pull them out and find the nearest pair of scissors. Refinery29′s stylish staff experimented with 7 pairs of jeans and 7 different styles of diy cut-off shorts. We’re loving the wide leg cropped trend, among others. Which is your fav?

Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and inside info! Catch up on what’s happening and browse our personal picks for the most interesting what-not that turns up during our morning web crawl. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!

1. Cali menswear brand Kent Denim just opened a new shop within a shop inside PAR-LA in West Hollywood.

2. So we’ve heard of denim furniture, but how about denim appliances? Smeg has created a 1950s-style refrigerator made from plasma-coated denim, the FAB28RDB. And apparently it’s not just in looks–the fridge also has a seam stitched in, so it’s just like a pair of jeans (kinda).

3. For the upcoming heat, MET-Denim has some rad pairs of jean shorts that you should definitely check out. We love different prints, washes, and studded accents! Celebs like Pippa Middleton and Alessandra Ambrosio are fans too.

4. We still love denim ties! These Italian-made bowties are made by Federico Batelli, and aren’t just produced from plain old denim. Different patterns, washes, and even bleached denim fabrics are part of the collection.

5. Need denim under $100? Here are some great deals, from Essie nail polish to denim trench coats!

12 Pairs Of Perfect Denim Shorts For Spring


As with its full length counterpart, the denim short is a style essential because it can broadcast a classic, preppy look  just as effectively as it can compliment an outfit that’s fierce and punk-rock inspired.

Even novelty denim has more longevity than other fabrics, so with that in mind, here are 12 selects from our personal wishlist.

Street Style: Dressing Up Denim On Denim


Sometimes people think of denim and they immediately think of a casual look, but this fashion blogger proves them wrong. She dresses up the denim on denim trend in such an easy way by adding sheer tights, black lace-up booties and a simple blazer to her light-wash denim work shirt and high-waisted jeans shorts.  The loose bow around the collar along with the touch of gold in the braided belt give this outfit a really polished look. The best thing about this outfit though, is how you can not only use it as a go-to for dressing up denim, but also as an inspiration for your style and mix and match these pieces however you would like.

Street Style: Light Wash Denim Shorts & A Touch Of Luxe


Want to give your look an edge of bohemian royalty this fall? Add a luxe garment like a kimono-style robe with embroidery and rich color! This street stype shoot from LA blogger Britney (AKA Disarming Darling) had us at first glance, with the graciously applied metallic & turquoise jewelry, light-wash denim cut-off shorts, simple knit top, and perfect boho carry-on. Shoes are key—Britney’s shoes are a unique chunky heeled sandal with major sole traction, and anything chunky works well. Avoid strappy thin-looking sandals (you’ll end up looking costume-y). Ready to rock the boho-royal look? Check out this perfect printed kimono-style robe to get started!

Street Style: Pink Dyed Blue Jean Cut-Off Shorts


Color us obsessed over these pink-hued blue jean cut-offs! This festival street style outfit shows how a bohemian look can be infused with some unexpected electro with hot pink threads running through the shredded and distressed denim in the bottom half of this ensemble. Whether or not this was a DIY endeavor, it’s definitely worth trying out. White fibers inside your denim can be dyed far easier than the blue-saturated part of your shorts, and the outcome is super exciting. The long cardigan and cropped top pictured here are a win-win as well.
