Even though the sunny season is coming to a close, there's still time to slip into a pair ultra-short shorts and stylishly strut your stuff around town. The most classic, versatile offering out there? Cutoff jean shorts. Whether they're worn-in, shaggy, and frayed or brand-new, neat, and cuffed, you can literally—and we mean literally—rock them with absolutely anything. 

Wondering exactly how to wear them? Go for eclectic 'n funky like Solange Knowles, who performed in her frayed denim cutoff shorts with a colorful baseball cap, striped tee, and knee-high boots. Nicole Richie dressed hers up with a slinky sleeveless top, a pair of black shooties, and a gold studded belt. Or take a cue from Jamie Chung, who threw her jeans shorts on with a pair of gray booties, a cutout top, and a printed jacket. Then there's Elettra Wiedemann, who went for chic 'n comfortable in her cuffed denim shorts, black ballet flats, and a snakeskin-print blouse.
