3 TIPS TO REMEMBER WHEN WEARING CUT-OFFS OVER THE AGE OF 40 (AND REALLY ANY AGE)
1.) Air on the big side, if your in doubt on whether or not they fit you or are too tight order a size up! There is nothing worse than seeing someone wearing a tight pair of shorts!
2.) Pair with an over-sized top or jacket/cardigan of some sort. This way you balance the look out and not everything is form fitting on the top AND on the bottom.
3.) Pick you shoes wisely – you should never wear cut-offs with super high stilettos or heels, this will create a look that’s too over the top and not age appropriate. I always pair my cut-offs with some chic wedges or a cool sneaker or flat sandal.
My cut-offs by Agolde are a new favorite of mine! I’ve been on the hunt for some cut-offs that actually fit really well, that weren’t too short or too tight or too wrippped, well these qualify for all 3! They’re high-rise, perfectly distressed and are long enough in the back to cover my entire rear and when wearing cut-offs over the age of 40 that’s really important, lol! In fact, wearing cut-offs at any age make sure they’re long enough and big enough so you don’t end up looking cheap! These shorts run big so I suggest ordering one size down. I’m normally a 26 in denim cut-offs and these are a 25 and they fit perfectly!
I’m so obsessed with this fabulous handbag, I just love the silver hardware and the size is perfect, not too big that it over whelms me, but certainly big enough to hold all of my personal essentials. I highly recommend adding this edgy handbag to your wardrobe, the perfect accessory to bring any look to the next level, the best part it’s ON CRAZY SALE!
My wedges are a favorite of mine for sure! I live in these wedges by Marc Fisher all spring and summer long, I have them in 3 colors, they’re that good! They look almost identical to these Chloe wedges, but they’re a fraction of the price! I highly recommend adding at least one pair of these amazing wedges to your shoe wardrobe, they’re so comfortable and they look good!
My black bodysuit is super edgy and slimming, I love it paired with shorts and an oversized cardigan, but it would also pair well in the fall with jeans and an edgy leather jacket! I’ll be wearing this bodysuit under all my jackets and cardigans this fall and for only $45 it’s a definite must-have! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
My chunky cardigan is by Free People, it’s so cozy yet incredibly chic! It comes in 3 gorgeous colors and the price point is pretty good too making it a definite fall staple! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
