American Eagle Jean Shorts – $34.99
Every summer, I can never decide whether or not it is appropriate to wear cut-offs without the presence of a major body of water. They are totally cute at the beach, lake or even an outdoor concert. But what about to brunch or a warm night out?
After years of pondering, my answer is – it depends on what you pair them with. If your jean shorts are really tight or short – pair them with a lose fitting blouse. If your shorts are loose, wear them with a more fitted top. To take cut-offs from beachwear to a chic night out pair them with statement accessories like a scarf, big errands, or boots.
The most budget friendly cut-off shorts are found in your closet. Find an old pair of jeans and cut them to your length of choice and put them in the wash. American Eagle also has some really cute jean shorts for $34.99.
Even though the LA weather is cool right now, I am planning to rock my cut-offs this summer with my gladiators, medallion necklace, and lightweight orange blouse. You can definitely count on some pics of my outfit in a future a budget weekend style post.
