OK, so I’ve been noticing this trend in NYC. Stylish ladies, especially in trendy neighborhoods like SoHo, have been pairing their denim cutoffs with tights and boots for the winter. After spending a few minutes … OK, hours really … on Chictopia, I’ve realized the trend has swept across the country. There are dozens of photos on this user-generated site of fashionistas wearing denim shorts the same way they’d wear a skirt in winter. Even though I’m not sure this look is for me, I will admit I almost bought a pair yesterday. Hey, they were only $5. But then I realized that I could freeze my tuckus off for free by cutting a pair of jeans I already own. Am I crazy to think this trend is crazy chic and crazy impractical at the same time? Would you adopt this look? And if you have already, what are your tricks for staying warm and not looking like a hoochie?
