Cut-Offs a.k.a. Daisy Dukes

Cut-Offs Are Perfect for Summer - Photo via Sera Leaving

Cut-offs are created by cutting the legs off pants to make shorts, leaving them unhemmed and left to fray. Cut-offs are a do-it-yourself fashion item and can be custom-made to the wearer’s preference, by either chopping them off below the knees or anywhere above.

Jeans which are cut off as butt-hugging short shorts are called “Daisy Dukes,” named after the character who wore them on the American TV show “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

Reaching all points of the cultural spectrum, Daisy Dukes were later immortalized by the 69 Boyz in the hip-hop song “Daisy Dukes.”

  1. O M G hihihi! Memories!
    I made a pair of Party daisy dukes so short when I was about 22, because I did not have much of a bust to brag about but I had a realy nice round behind…
    I made the jeans shorts out of a fabulous pair of lowcut vintage jeans from the 60´s(regretable- I didn´t know better) They were way to short!!! Clubstoppers 😉
    My daughter will never wear jeans shorts that short!!! 🙂

  2. Lillgull, thanks for this recount of your early 20s Daisy Dukes. I love it! Low cut 60s jeans + high cut bottoms=Trouble! Perhaps this is one of those fashion items that shouldn’t be worn after (or before, in your daughter’s case) a certain age?

  3. Absolutely a strict age limit on those things -both upper and lower…If you wanna start some trouble you gotto be old enough to handle it…
