We’ve been talking a lot about shorts recently. Colored shorts, celebs wearing shorts, bikini and bathing suit top combos…the list goes on. (Hey, it’s hot!) But even in the worst oppressive heat, most of us have limits on what we’re willing to wear in public. For instance, when it comes to cut-offs, everyone’s comfort level is different. Need proof? Browse through some street style blogs. From upper-thigh to practically-underwear, we found denim cut-off shorts that run the length gamut in our search to answer the eternal cut-offs question: how short is too short? Is there even such a thing? Let us know what you think!
To help you reach your verdict, we’ve rounded up some stylish ladies wearing all different types of cut-offs:
Something else else to consider: how ripped, ragged, torn, or distressed are you willing to wear ‘em?
Pssst, if you want to make your own cut-offs–of whatever length you fancy–we can help you out!

Recently, Denim Therapy asked Raven Denim Creative Director Yael Torbati about what she thought were some perfect denim fits this summer. ”We are super into mid-rise and high waisted jeans…they hold that belly in, show off your waistline, and seam to just be universally flattering! We’ve all seen the pairing of high waists with crop tops but for a look that’s extra sleek and sophisticated, I suggest wearing it with a one-piece swimsuit or a unitard. This creates a sleek line, with no messy “untucking”. Also, many high waisted styles have really cute detailing at the waistline (since it’s often a focal point) so wearing a one piece is the best way to show it off.
GET THE LOOK…

Superstar style blogger The Glamourai, upon returning to NYC from her dreamy trip to Morroco recently, was inspired to dress with rich textures and hues by her stay in Marrakesh. She chose 7 For All Mankind’s Crop Skinny in Toffee Ikat and paired it with a bright orange tunic and tassle clutch. The perfect outfit for a pre-summer evening, we think! Try mixing printed denim with bold colors to achieve a similar look.
See the original post at The Glamourai, and bookmark her for style inspiration! Love the look? Grab your pair of 7 For All Mankind’s Crop Skinny in Toffee Ikat for a stylish summer yourself.

Ahhh, summer. The sand, the surf, the skimpiest jean shorts you can squeeze into. What’s not to love about the sultriest time of the year? Summer’s also the time when everyone loosens up and casual dressing is de rigueur—meaning denim can work almost anywhere. But just slipping into the first jeans-and-a-tee combo you find is a bit boring, so we asked the James Jeans design team how they’re planning to get creative with their denim styling this summer.
Here are their top 5 tips:
1. ) The ’80s are back in full force, so try pairing your high waisted jeans with crop tops. Our High Class style is ideal for this.
2.) Cuff your skinny and straight leg jeans, making them into crops.
3.) We all have that pair of jeans we know we’re never gonna wear again. This summer, convert them into distressed, rolled shorts.
4.) We’re all about the DIY. Ombre your cut-off shorts (tutorial courtesy of Could I Have That?) or add studs to selected areas.
5.) Send last summer’s white jeans to Denim Therapy and get them tie dyed a la Isabel Marant’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
