Tightwad Tuesday: J Brand Low Rise Cutoff Shorts for a Steal

Dolls, to the left you will find J Brand’s luscious Low Rise Shorts in Bright Red; to the right direct your attention to Topshop’s tantalizing Moto Pink Denim Hot Pants.

Though the Topshop stunners sport a slightly different shade than the blissful J Brand’s; for just $55.00, in comparison to the $159.00 required to add a pair of the original Low Rise Cutoff Shorts to your summer wardrobe, they are le perfect compromise for the girl looking to indulge in the colored denim trend – on a budget!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for J Brand, or be thrifty and spring for Topshop?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to J Brand and Topshop for the pictures.

I'm not a shorts girl so neither for me!

Rachel {Da Paura ♥} said...

I definitely don't like the thought of paying $159 for a pair of shorts, so I'll go with the cheaper ones! They are really cute, great find Erika!

Style Eyes said...

When it comes to this type of shorts, a flattering cut is really important so I think I would opt for J Brand if I could afford them!

StyleID said...

I'll be a spender this time.... I love J Brand, their fit is perfect and that red is fantastic.

Okay, I am really really cheap because I would have a hard time spending $60 on jeans, let alone jean shorts. Haha... oh dear.

Alexa said...

Very inspiring. But I wouldn't spend that much on either. Still, this gives me lots of ideas.

The two shades definitely look almost identical. I love this style...I'll go ahead and be thrifty and go topshop on this one!

Jamie said...

I am kind of loving J.Brands colored denim line. I have been coveting the red jeans but I think I will have to take the red shorts instead!

Drizzle said...

The J Brand's hue sucked me in!

Ooh, that's tough, since I love both of those brands! I guess I'd have to go with J Brand, though.

Samantha Elisabeth said...

Ooh In think I might have to check this out... Fab find!

Aren't you a life saver? I've been wondering lately where I can find a pair of red hot pants or denim cutoffs that don't break the bank... guess I just got my answer! Thanks a bunch doll!!!!

I would totally go for the topshop!

Shop N' Chomp said...

Love TopShop but those J Brands look so much better!

She is Sara said...

I am usually more of a high-waisted shorts girl, but that color and Top Shop? Yes please!

Pratishtha Durga said...

I love the color of the expensive ones. But I agree with "Lucy and Sarah". 50$ for the cheaper version ain't cheap either. Love them, but would gladly shop my own closet first.

Mani said...

Dear, we gave you a blogger award!

hugs and kisses by Mani & Antonia.

MM said...

Love them both but I would definitely buy the Topshop ones..
