I think I was fifteen the first time I sported a pair of cutoff denim shorts. I remember being inspired by Cindy Crawford’s Shape Your Body Workout Video so I cut the legs out of a pair of old jeans. Not bothering to measure, one leg was longer than the other and since I can’t cut a straight line to save my life, each leg was a jagged mess with no fray so the uneven lines were really noticeable. That didn’t stop me from wearing them of course, but mainly just to the beach.  I was feeling the need to revisit the trend for Summer but this time I resorted to professional cutoffs.  When paired with a white linen button down and white canvas shoes, they made for the perfect outfit to tour DC and beat the heat.
