Corduroy immediately reminds me of a pair of pastel pink corduroy jeans my mom would make me wear as a child during the winter. Needless to say, they were not so fashionable. But corduroy can actually be worn in a fashionable way…and in the summer nonetheless! Introducing the corduroy cutoffs. These shorts are a great way to keep cool during the final grueling heated days of the summer.
The cut off short is definitely a trend that has caught on this summer. The best part about it is that they are popular with Fashionistas and Fashionistos alike. Celebrities like supermodel Gisele Bundchen and pop star Miley Cyrus have both been spotted sporting cut off shorts along with actors Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.
I found this Fashionisto in downtown Iowa City, sporting a pair of navy blue cut offs. The shorts kept him comfortable while still keeping him looking casually well dressed. He finished the look with a striped v-neck and flip-flop sandals. The look was a unique twist to the normally winter friendly fabric.
Hint: For a pair of your own corduroys, try these Levi’s.
