I’m sure you’ve sensed a bit of an ominous cloud settling over your part of the closet. Perhaps you’ve seen the scraps of denim littering the floor of my bedroom. Or maybe you’ve noticed that your comrades are starting to return to the jean pile as mere shadows of their former selves — half the garments they once were?
Well, I’m sorry to say your intuition is right. Your days are most definitely numbered. You won’t be long for long. Because it’s finally warm outside, which means my cutoffs obsession has begun. None of my full-length jeans are safe. You’ve got another week, maybe two, tops. And then? Snip, snip. Keep reading »

We’ve debated the idea of denim shorts and have even given advice on how to wear them, but recently I’ve been seeing a lot of denim short-shorts for spring. Did I miss something?

The short-shorts served their purpose, and I probably won’t wear shorts with such little fabric again. Will you wear denim short-shorts this summer? Keep reading »
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? Keep reading »
