If the unseasonably high temperatures have you thinking of summer, it might be time to start taking stock of your shorts situation. You can’t go wrong with denim cutoffs — they’re both reminiscent of Jane Birkin on holiday and the base for a summer Canadian tuxedo. It delights us to report that the cutoff version of one of our favorite jeans from Madewell, the Perfect Vintage, is down to just $50 right now. The shorts are billed as “mom jeans, if your mom was a ’90s supermodel,” with a high-waisted fit and hint of stretch for a broken-in feel. The short-shorts also have a 3-inch inseam to show lots of leg. And heads-up: A selection of the brand’s denim is marked down alongside this pair — shop accordingly, because it’s only going to get hotter from here on out.
