Double Take

Denim Cutoffs

June 30th, 2015

Our relationship with cutoff jeans is a little bit like our feelings about hot dogs: in the right setting, they’re undeniably perfect. Nothing says “summer” like a homemade pair of denim shorts — paired with the perfect white button down shirt, we like to think we’re channeling a 90’s Cindy Crawford. But handcut denim can be treacherous territory, and if you’re not careful you might end up channeling something a little… less tasteful. We decided to consult and with the experts and met up with two of the most stylish gals we know in Austin — Jessi Afshin of The Darling Detail and Kelly Wynne Ferguson of Kelly Wynne — to learn how to sport a pair of cutoffs with confidence.

More “Double Take”

We wanna know...

Cutoff jeans: are they a "do" or a "don't"?

  1. Kelly Colchin says:

    They’re a DO to me! But I was born in Texas.

  2. Jessi Afshin says:

    Love this so much, Jenn! Thanks for having us on the blog 🙂 xoxo

  3. Nevernudes forever!

  4. Sonia says:

    Great post. I live in denim shorts in the summer. I disagree with the “no heels” though. When done right, it pops. Think layering with a lengthy jacket or “blousy” look , totally works!

  5. Stephanie says:

    Jean shorts are a summer must!
    Who makes Kelly’s gladiator sandals – love them.
