How Jackie O. Might Have Worn Cut-Offs

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Three years running, these Rag and Bone Gunnars are still my favorite cut-offs.  They’re approaching denim underwear, but thanks to the step hem, they’re actually a little longer in the back, so I’m not terrorizing the city of Philadelphia with Peeking Cheeks.

(Mike, a die-hard fan of Peeking Cheeks, isn’t completely on board, but there’s still Lotsa Leg which somewhat appeases.)

Anyway, I discovered an outfit formula recently, one that feels especially fresh right now, given the explosion of ruffles and the outbreak of statement sleeves.  And one that looks especially good with cut-offs.  Enter….

…The Sleeveless Turtleneck.

I mean, c’mon….you had to know this was coming.  It was only a matter of time.  #turtlenecks4eva

But before your eyes roll completely to the back of your head….hear me out:  A sleeveless black turtleneck, when paired with big sunglasses, evokes a distinct Jackie-O vibe, does it not?  One could then cement the reference by pairing with white jeans….or…take it in a completely different direction with distressed cut-offs.

Personally, I like the edgy/classic pairing.  (And simple nude sandals are a nice, minimalist nod.)

Outfit Details – Day

top: Rag and Bone Thea Tank (size xs) – love the cutout at the back of the neck.  Interesting, yet subtle.

shorts: Rag and Bone Gunnars (size 24 for reference, but they do fit smaller than AG’s size 24, and much smaller than Rag and Bone’s Dres.)

sandals: Splendid Mason sandals

sunglasses: Tory Burch

bag: Clare V. drawstring pouch

On Raines: tee (40% off!) | shorts | sneakers

On Pax: tee (everything else is old…)

Oh and hey:  If you live in Philly, this year’s Parks on Tap is SO GOOD (get the rose – you won’t be disappointed).  I wore this outfit to the Schuylkill River location on a lazy Sunday afternoon.  We bought a football, played cards, stuffed ourselves….and then took a nap in the hammocks.  Bliss.

When I swap out the flats for heels, and add a few pretty touches….this outfit combo even works for date night.
