I'm a lover of all things denim! In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find me in an outfit that didn't include denim on some level. Much to my delight, denim is hugely of-the-moment, not to mention pretty much a classic as well so I will never have to go without. I have all sorts of denim lovelies in my closet, everything from colored denim to the classic denim jacket. Somehow though, I didn't have a recent denim crush of mine and crucial summer wardrobe staple, the high-waisted denim cutoffs. These throwback shorts, a la Lana Del Rey, are EVERYWHERE except my closet. So I decided to make some! A quick shopping trip to the local Goodwill produced the perfect vintage Levi's with a high rise, buttonfly, and spot-on light colored wash. Tip: Shop the men's section for these jeans, the women's usually don't have as many Levi's as I would hope. Another brand that works well is Guess or just about anything with a buttonfly (that usually indicates a high rise). Of course, the jeans are anything but flattering in tact, but that's no never mind. As long as they aren't too tight through the thighs and make your ass look good, then your summer cutoffs are winking at you from the horizon. They are super easy to make!
