A pair of cut off shorts is probably the most essential, classic piece for summer. You'll certainly find hundreds of different models and styles in hundreds of different brands... But there is one, very cool way to have a perfect-fitted pair of cut offs in your summer wardrobe, without spending a cent. The DIY for cut off shorts is one of the easiest ideas, and below I share the 1,2,3 to get the look...

What you'll need:
- A pair of old, well-fitted jeans
- A pair of scissors
- Straight pins

How to:
1. Put on the pair of jeans, and determine the desired length of the shorts. Use pins to mark the length.

2. Cut each leg individually from where the pins were placed. (It's a good idea to cut 1 or 2 inches below the marked line, in case you want them cuffed, and to avoid having them cut too short.)

3. Wash the pair of shorts to make the hem look more authentic (If you want cuffed shorts, before washing fold twice the bottom of each leg and iron.)

See? Easy as 1,2,3...
