Denim Lov'in

Posted by Alyssa Franco-Lozada on

Headed out for a hike? You probably reach for your cutoffs. Moving day? Cutoffs, obviously. A quick walk around the block so Fluffy can stretch his paws? Cutoffs, we meet again! But if looking sharp and fashion-forward is on the menu, it's rare that your mind springs first to your trusty jorts.  But why not? It's hard to look bad in a pair of jean shorts, and they have an awesome ability to imbue your outfit with an ease that can't even be bought at an Isabel Marant outpost.
