These Levi cut-offs have been a wardrobe staple since I bought them 2 years ago.
What makes them them so perfect? 
They are short but baggy, and the distressing on them is perfect. 
Pockets peaking out the bottom is also a necessity for cool cut-offs.
Adding tights to cut-offs is not always a look I'm into. 
The look needs to remain clean, effortless and a bit dressed down to avoid looking like a big 'ol mess.
I think a polished loafer and a crisp button down are perfect pieces to make the look clean and modern. 

***another tip...avoid shiny tights and stick with opaque.

I love the way you styled your denim cut-offs with classic wardrobe staples. I think you have the ability to make anything and everything look chic :)

Take care and I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend,

I love this! Normally I'm not a huge fan of the shorts over tights look, but I feel like you made it look really classy with that soft toned blazer and the smoking slippers. Great look!

I will 100% agree with your opaque tight tip... A girl I used to work with would wear cutoffs with sheer navy tights... and it was very Courtney Love or Taylor Momsen...

I, of course, love the jacket as well.

I've done a shorts with tights look on several occasions, dear Sheree; but I've never tried it with cut-offs before...you may just have inspired me!! They look surprisingly sleek the way you've styled them with your white shirt and longer jacket!!
