The look of distressed denim and cut off shorts has made a splash this summer and will continue through the fall season. While this look isn’t for everyone, it is really about looking like you have owned them for years. Find a pair that looks slightly distressed to feel fabulous and not overly trendy. If you can find the right fit and wash for your body type it can be a great way to add interest to your wardrobe. Below are an old pair of AG jeans that I cut myself . I like dressing up distressed denim in an unexpected way. Have fun with it and try pairing distressed denim with a blazer, a statement necklace, metallics, or a pointy toe heel to add contrast and balance to this look.
