If you’re wearing your cut-off jeans to work, tuck your favourite white shirt into the waist and layer a statement necklace over the top, then add a smart jacket in a neutral tone to elevate your jeans. Keep the rest of the accessories to a minimum – the key here is the simplicity. Boots look great with cut-offs – just make sure they finish at roughly the same point as the hem. And, match your bag and boot colour together to give the outfit a sophisticated finish.
Let your cut-off jeans act as your staple here, and clash prints and colour around them for a look that is effortlessly cool (the sort of outfit that looks like you took ages planning it, but really you just threw it together). Putting stripes against animal looks great, as long as you keep the rest of the look minimal. If you go for flats, make sure they have some detail – print, strap or stud – to make the most of those cut-off hems. Try a colour pop bag to bring your prints to life, and shrug a leather jacket over your shoulders to finish off. Keep accessories minimal – hoop earrings will give it that extra stylish touch.
For those days when you want to be comfy without compromising your style, try a sporty take on the cut-off denims. Add a bright colour pop top and trainers to your jeans, and tie a neutral cardigan around your waist (it’s there for if you get chilly). Add interest to the look with a standout jacket – a print like camouflage will make the statement.
