Scalloped Edge Jean Cut Off Shorts

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: Here in Texas I can hardly bear the thought of putting on a pair of blue jeans. Summer heat makes the idea of taking a pair of scissors to your favorite jeans seem like a completely rationale thing to do. I’ll be the first to admit scrappy Daisy Dukes with fringe flying is not a great look for me. However, if my jeans were cut off with a decorative scalloped edge I might be more into this idea. Katy from Sweet Verbena just turned me into a cut off jeans covert. I love the look of the scalloped edge on her shorts. Nothing says yours have to be this short (I know mine won’t be, I don’t want to blind anyone). Also, nothing says you have to use jeans. What about a pair of slacks? Hmmm I’m about to go take a stroll through my pant drawer with a pair of scissors in hand. - Jen]

Scalloped Shorts

Worried your new scalloped jeans will fray in the wash? Don’t. Katy has a great tip for keeping your edges smooth: "A little bit of fray check on the ends helps to ensure these shorts don't get eaten up in the dryer."
