I’m enjoying some sunshine out here in my neck of the woods, which has inspired me to review more shorts lately.  These are 7 For All Mankind Charlie Shorts.

I’m sure many of you have seen 7 For All Mankind Crop Skinny in Toffee Ikat around.  I thought these were really cute and such a unique print.  So when I saw these Charlie shorts in this color, I had to try them.  The wash is called Coral Ikat which is a faded coral color.  The next best way for me to describe the color is a dark peach color with a slight mix of a pink shade with cream colored ikat designs.  I am really loving all of the coral colored clothing out right now.  It’s such a pretty and feminine color, and it’s so perfect for spring and summer.

I’d say these shorts run about a half size large, but I prefer my shorts to fit a little on the loose side.  They’re made of 97% cotton and 3% spandex, and they do stretch out with wear, as do many of 7 For All Mankind jeans.  So depending on how you like your shorts to fit, order your size accordingly. If you prefer them to be more fitted, then consider going down a size.  The denim is soft and fairly light-weight.  They feel worn in, which gives it a more comfortable feel.

I really like that they aren’t super short shorts.  I’m not comfortable in short daisy dukes, as they make me feel self-conscious.  But I’m not crazy about the look of long shorts on me because I feel like they make my legs look shorter.  But these are a perfect compromise of the two, with an inseam of 4 inches (the total length of the shorts is 13 ½ inches).  The rise measurement is 8 inches.  The leg opening is 21 ½ inches.  (Keep in mind that measurements may vary slightly with different sizes.)

The hem is frayed with 2 ½ inch side slits on the outer leg.  It’s a cute little detail that really adds to the look of the shorts.  The hardware is gold which is a nice compliment to the coral wash.

Washing instructions are:  Turn inside out, machine wash cold separately, do not bleach, tumble dry low, iron when needed or dry clean.
