Rated 4 out of 5Â by ForeverFree Bleached Out & Burnt Lace
These cut offs caught my eye because of their unusual design, yet versatility of color palette. They are basically grey and black in tonality, which will pass through different seasons and accessories. I love the edges . . . they're cotton denim transformed into the delicacy of lace without losing the tough, urban vibe. Within the black, there are random patches of seed-bead-textured distressing and the four pockets are trimmed in black bias ribbon - the ubiquitous testimony of Free People's ongoing attention to minute detail!
The length is nice - more modest than most cut offs. I do find, however, that they run a little large. I ordered my usual size 26, and they hang quite low on my hips. A 25 would likely have been a better fit, but, I was too impatient to wait for the exchange process.
I'm also concerned about the lifespan of these shorts. The bleaching, ripping, and wearing of the fabric creates an appealing look, but, a lightweight result that may or may nor survive a multitude of washings. I'm willing to take the risk, though, for the cause of great fashion!

I love these shorts but I had to send them back. I got a size 28 which is correct for me but I'm athletic and the shorts were a bit tight around the leg. Due to the way they are bleached and frayed I could tell the moment I bent down they were going to tear up the front where you can see on the model there is already a "decorative" tear that is not sufficiently reinforced. I was going to try a 29 to see if they were better but it's unavailable. Buy these shorts with caution!

I was a little hesitant ordering these shorts, but decided to give them a try. Just received them in the mail and I love them! They are so unique and will be a great staple in my wardrobe this summer. The only thing I'm worried about is the bottom fraying on the shorts is a little thin and worn out, and I'm worried that some of the holes that have been purposely put there for that "worn in look" might distress more. Still, a great purchase and can't wait to wear these.
