We’ve been getting some unusually warm weather here in Southern California lately, which has motivated an emergency shopping spree for coconut water and shorts.  These are Hudson Jeans Libertine Boyfriend Short in Anti-Establishment.

I feel like every summer, I’m on a mission to find those perfect shorts.  I feel like most of the ones I see are either too short or too long or too tight or simply just not very flattering on me.  What I love about these shorts, aside from the extreme comfort, is that they fit nice and loose.  They’re considered boyfriend shorts, so they’re on the more relaxed side.  I’d say these run slightly large, but they’re meant to be loose.  I actually went up one size because I really wanted to emphasize the relaxed look.  And since they fit looser, they rest more on my hips, giving me a slightly longer inseam.  The inseam on these shorts is 3 inches (minus the fray), which is such a perfect length in my opinion.  Although I love the look of short shorts, I feel super self-conscious in them.  But these expose enough of the legs without feeling overly exposed.

The color is called Anti-Establishment which is a lighter blue with distress throughout the front part of the shorts.  Under the holes and distress is a UK Union Jack Flag that peaks through the holes (which represents Hudson Jeans’ mantra of “born in California, but rooted in London”).  The style is a classic five pocket with a button fly with gold buttons.  I’ve already worn these shorts a ton.  Although there’s a lot of distress, they actually look really cute with a dressier top and sandals as well as a casual tee and boots.  They’re really versatile shorts as long as they’re paired correctly.

The rise is 9 ½ inches, which feel lower on me because I went up in size.  Made of 98% cotton and 2% elastan, these have some stretch to them.  And they will stretch out a bit more after some wear.  The leg opening is 24 inches with a frayed hem.

Washing instructions are: Turn inside out, hand wash cold, hang dry, no iron.
