Another easy way to add a touch of sophistication and some ying to your yang is by pairing your denim cutoffs with a pair of menswear inspired shoes.  Try them on with a pair of chunky loafers, platform slip-on sneakers, or some elegant oxford shoes for a bit of summer androgyny.  Opting for a rolled-hem style denim short not also gives a more adult vibe, but it gives you more options for varying how much leg you want to show according to how hot your date night is.

When it comes down to it, ladies, keep problem areas covered and carry yourself like a lady in your denim jean shorts. If you can pull off a shorter cutoff with class and confidence, then all the power to you, mama, you wear them well.
