4 Ways to Wear Cut-Offs, over 40.

Each month Anna, Ann and I are styling a ‘classic’ item, and this month it’s the turn of the (frankly scary) Cut-offs.
Cut-off shorts are definitely NOT a Scottish staple.

So I did a little DIY….
When I say DIY I mean hacking the legs off some jeans and sticking them in the washing machine to see if they frayed nicely.
Luckily they did.
Lazy DIY at it’s best.

Perfect for this month’s ping pong piece.

In order to make them more wearable for the Scottish summer I decided to try and smarten them up a bit.

{Well, as much as cut-offs can be smartened up!}

A plain cashmere jumper, silk scarf and neutral accessories.
Warm enough to compensate for my bare legs.
Light enough to feel “Summery”.
Comfortable and practical.

Ruth from My Little Nest.

This is such an on-trend and ageless look from Ruth.
So fresh and fun but smart enough.
Perfect styling!

Anna from Anna’s Island Style

Anna’s out of her comfort zone but she is showing us how cut-offs don’t need to be micro-short and bum-cheek-baring!
Slightly longer, equally easy-going and cool.
This is how to do it.

BLOUSE: charity shopped
CUT-OFFs: Ann’s

Ann is a cut-off aficionado!
She is no stranger to the look and has a few pairs in her collection.
She wears this pair with her usual “too cool for school” ease.
Another ageless beachy look.
