Summer is not over yet, and I am trying to savor my last days by spending it on the beach- Miami Beach. For the occasion, I have managed to find a perfect pair of denim cutoffs; long enough to cover the main bits but short enough to show off my legs. I managed to wear these shorts almost daily as I found the to be the most versatile summer piece I own. Below are some tips on how to wear denim cutoffs:
1. Go for the loose fit: one of my BIGGEST beauty tips is to always buy shorts that are at least ONE size bigger. Larger shorts give the illusion of smaller waist and hips. On the other hand, denim cutoffs that hug every curve tightly tend to emphasize any flaws that you may have. I like mine extra roomy as I feel they look the best; the shorts I am wearing are a size “L” and I normally wear a size “S.”

2. Length matters: denim cutoffs should be long enough to reach just below hips; extra short ones can look boxy and may not be as versatile when it comes to street fashion.

3. Pair with a loose top: denim cutoffs look best when paired with loose tops. The balance between short bottom and loose top gives just the right amount of sex appeal and makes it perfect for the city as well.

4. Reach for the “destroyed wash”: Denim cutoffs are meant to be worn casually and look best in the “destroyed wash” version. I like mine to have just the right amount of holes in the front so that I can show off the pockets.
