The Perfect Cutoffs for Summer

06/17/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

It would be wrong to RSVP no to all of our summer weddings, only go to work on casual Fridays and avoid every other activity that calls for anything more formal than denim shorts, right? Huh, that’s a shame, because we were really hoping we wouldn’t ever have to take off this pair

What makes us love these cutoffs above all others? It’s all about the cut. You see, normally we spot a pair of cute cutoff shorts in a store or online, become convinced we’ll look like an off-duty, street stylish, genetically blessed supermodel wearing them, try them on, look in the mirror and realize the shorts are actually not all that flattering.


But when we tried on this DL1961 pair and looked in the mirror, we had quite a different reaction. Because the cutoffs have a slightly longer inseam than most distressed denim shorts, they’re ultra-flattering. They won’t make ladies on the shorter side — even ones with a butt and hips — feel stumpy (this editor can attest to that!).

We know that $101 sounds a bit on the steep side for a pair of summer shorts, but we promise you the cost-per-wear will be pennies. Because just like us, once you put the cutoffs on, you won’t want to take ’em off.

i wouldn’t pay $100 for a pair of jeans, forget a pair of shorts.

I second that heather. I think people is confused about their audience because they put more expensive stuff on here. It’s less fabric so I’m not willing to pay 100 dollars. Maybe jeans…but they better be amazing and last for years…

15% if your going to put this up here then offer 40%…and I saw you guys endorse an atomizer from these same sellers, do you have a deal with them people?
And the atomizer was 40 dollars!?!? I got one at sephora for 15 and it works great and has lasted over a year…so yeah…

Also, these ARE NOT FOR GIRLS WITH A BUTT. I have a booty, and it’s not flat and my waist is small. This is not for me
