I recently went shopping with two of my nieces, and we found the cutest pair of star denim shorts for them. They reminded me so much of these shorts. Seeing how cute my nieces looked in their new shorts really peaked my interest in these, so I just had to check them out for myself. These are Current/Elliott Boyfriend Shorts in White Star. We recently did a review on Current/Elliott Stiletto Jeans in White Star (see review here). I thought the pattern was so cute, I wanted to try their shorts version as well.
What I like most about Current/Elliott shorts is their relaxed fit. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I’m not very comfortable wearing shorts, particularly ones on the shorter side. But I feel comfortable in Current/Elliott shorts because of their looser fit. Their Boyfriend Shorts are particularly comfortable. Made of 98% cotton and 2% spandex, they are very soft and feel like the denim has been worn in for you already. These shorts stayed true to Current/Elliott’s well-deserved reputation for their comfort.
The wash is called White Star which is a medium vintage blue wash with faded white stars. Stars seem to be big this season. The rise is 9 inches, but they sit fairly low along the hips because of their relaxed fit. So they don’t feel like a high rise short. The leg opening is 22 inches. The inseam is 2 inches, which is a little shorter than I prefer (total length is 11 1/2 inches). I have a personal preference for shorts to be slightly longer than this. But if you’re comfortable in short shorts and have the legs to pull them off, then these are definitely a pair to consider.
These shorts do stretch out a bit with some wear, so keep that in mind when ordering your correct size. They run about a half size large. But because I prefer my shorts to fit a little on the loose side, I went with my normal size which worked out nicely since these run a little large.
The washing instructions are: machine wash cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low, iron low heat.
