vintage Levi cutoffs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok, I'm not going to lie, when I first saw the celebs wearing their highwaisted vintage Levi cutoffs, I gasped and covered my eyes. Kind of like the first time I ever saw someone wearing a pair of skinny jeans. And, like then, I saw it again and this time the gasp, and then my fingers began to part and I took a peek. The next time, I peeked a little longer. And, then next time no gasp at all.

 

Well, since then I've seen a lot of vintage Levi cutoffs and like my opinion changed with the skinnies, I am finding the look to be something I like..

 

It's a weird kind of like, though, it reminds me of the old 3 x 3" pics of my mom from her hippie days out west and for that reason I really like it.

 

On the other hand, I wonder how the heck do I pull it off?

 

I'm thinking of heading to my nearest thrift, buying a few pairs of old Levis and giving it a shot. Any advice? What should I look for in the Levis? How long do I cut them off? What do I wear them with? And, I guess I should have asked this first, should I even be doing this??

 

So, the big question, what's your opinion on this look?

I think the key is cutting them an inch or so shorter in the front, and keeping the rest of the outfit/jewelry polished. I'm not a fan of when the whole look gets hippie unless you're at Coachella... Urban Outfitters has a large selection for you to get some ideas of fit.

 

Let me know how it goes!
