We’ve hit a heat wave this past weekend where I am, so it’s been difficult to think about wearing jeans. So you’ll probably be seeing a lot more reviews on shorts in the next few weeks. These are Current/Elliott’s Boyfriend Shorts in Sweet Cream Ditsy.
What I love most about Current/Elliott jeans is the comfort. If you’re familiar with their ever so popular boyfriend jean, then you know what I’m talking about. These shorts are just as comfortable. They’re not tight and constricting. Rather, they run about a size large compared to other designer standard sizes (but the same as Current/Elliott typically runs). Made of 98% cotton and 2% elastin, they do stretch out a bit after wear. They feel very comfortable and have a worn-in feel to the denim.
The wash is called Sweet Cream Ditsy, which is not my most favorite name. The word, “ditsy,” doesn’t evoke anything positive. But the color is beautiful none the less. The shorts are an off-white color with cranberry colored flowers and petals. Some of the flowers are faded a bit. It’s a really pretty and feminine wash.
I like the front pocket detail on the Boyfriend Short. The inner pockets peak out through the bottom hem of the shorts. But it also shows how short these are. The inseam is 2 inches (total length of the shorts is 11 ½ inches), which is a little shorter than I’m comfortable with. But if you’re comfortable in short shorts (aka: daisy dukes) and have the legs for it, then go for it. These shorts are really pretty, and are a perfect color for the summer. The rise measurement is 9 inches, and leg opening is 21 inches with a frayed hem.
Washing instructions are: Machine wash cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low, iron low heat.
