Summer style is all about casual ease. Layers are shed, buttons undone and socks don't see the light of day for weeks on end. And what's more casual or easy than cut-offs? Made from an old pair of your chinos, the fit will be trimmer than your average shorts, resulting in a look that's a touch more grown-up but still rumpled and cool. For more stylishly adventurous guys, give a pair of jeans a subtle lift while giving your ankles some breathing room by hacking off the hem. It's a pro move we've noticed floating around street style snaps lately, with everyone from sneakerheads to dapper dudes like Sid Mashburn sporting self-snipped Levi's. The key to this look is a trim pair of jeans and we've found a single cuff adds some nice dimension to the fringe. What's more, both moves instantly update your summer wardrobe without spending a dime.
