A little while ago, I went to a Cyndi Lauper concert and I couldn’t find the exact top I wanted to pair with a high-waisted skirt I love, so I just cut off an old t-shirt. I only planned to wear it that evening, but got so many glances of approval throughout the night from gay men (call me shallow, but I find that’s usually a strong indicator you’re onto something) and then I began seeing simple cutoff tees in shops all around me, so I thought, “Why not rock it a few more times?”
Here, I pair it with a pair of high-waisted tuxedo shorts. The top’s ragged hem is in accord with the frayed shorts, and the outfit observes the rule of modern midriff-baring: Keep your bellybutton under wraps!
