I’m loving easy denim shorts for spring and summer — especially when they’re cuffed and a longer length. We just finished watching the last season of Weeds on Netflix, and I loved Nancy’s go-to cuffed denim shorts that she wore in almost every episode. I decided to hack one of my favorite pair of jeans (Divine Rights of Denim from m.marie a few years ago) into a similar pair. They don’t fit as well as skinnies anymore since I’ve lost a few pounds, but they’re a perfect fit for shorts. 
To make sure the hems turned out even, I just folded the legs up evenly to meet the top of the waist and cut straight across with sharp fabric scissors. Then rolled them up a couple of times into a cuff. Could not be easier [read: lazier] friends. 
Can’t wait to pair these with cute spring wedges and an easy breezy top. 
Moral of the story, kiddos: Think twice before you throw old jeans into the donation pile. ReStyle ’em!
