Cutoff shorts + Tights
I've always been kind of terrified of jean cutoffs. First off, they're shorts, and it just seems like a bit too much leg for me. But seeing as it's cooling down, paired with a thick pair of knits or tights, they just may be actually wearable. They're definitely more relaxed than a skirt, and for those who thought their shorts were out of rotation until Spring, think again. I think a great charcoal or heather grey knit tight looks awesome when paired with a a lighter denim. Not only does it keep you warm, but it elongates your legs and makes you look so cute. I've seen this look for a while now and think ballet flats would look chic during the day and some booties or wedges would look fierce at night. Dress it up with a pretty blouse and you're good to go. Just another way to extend the life of your wardrobe and stay stylish even when you think all you can wear are shapeless sweaters and sweats. I know, totally guilty.
