Of course, these revamped jeans are more practical than cute, but if you want more cute, you could add a few inches of great fabric to the bottom of the cut-off jeans, making long denim shorts with a pretty band (or ruffle!) at the hem. (And is there a name for those trendy, close-fitting knee length shorts?) Last summer, when I cut off holey-knee jeans, I elevated them by adding nice trims.
It seems, however, that practical capris can make you grouchy.
