Once the providence of Daisy Duke, Tobias Funke, and Britney Spears circa 2005, denim cutoffs are having a renaissance. We've recently spotted this 80's trend getting a celebrity revival on such style-setters as Ashley and Lindsay, which of course means that it's time to bust out some vintage Levis and your snipping shears.
No longer relegated to being a beach cover-up, Ashley's been seen wearing hers (with her favorite Prada headband) to get coffee, while Alessandra wore hers, accessorized with a big scarf, to Hyde one night. The reason, in our humble opinion, for said reemergence has to do with the number of hot pants and other similar short shorts seen on the spring runway.
Hollister currently has multiple, affordable styles-all adorably named after beaches, like the Leucadia, seen here ($34.95, hollisterco.com). Other great choices include the Siwy Denim (Kate Moss's favorite jean line) Camilla short ($148, famousstyle.com) or for a slightly longer pair, try the Gap's 5 Pocket Cut-off ($19.50, gap.com).
