I’d been waiting for these shorts to come out for some time now.  They’re from Current/Elliott’s summer collection, and I’m so excited that they are finally available.  And the timing couldn’t be more perfect as the heat wave here continues.  These are Current/Elliott The Boyfriend Short in Summer Love.

I’ve mentioned before that I am always on the hunt for the perfect pair of shorts.  I absolutely love the styles that Current/Elliott comes out with every summer, particularly their boyfriend shorts.  Unfortunately, the length is a little short for my taste. So I tried something new this time and went up in size to see if that might help.  I think going up in size was the right choice for me.  These shorts run true to Current/Elliott’s sizing, but my preference in fit for shorts is quite different than my jeans.  While I prefer my jeans to fit nice and tight, I feel the complete opposite about my shorts.  I prefer them to fit relaxed and loose.

The wash name is Summer Love with Embroidery, which is a medium blue dirty denim color with dark blue embroidered flowers along the front.  I love fun embroidered designs like this.  They have a nice 60’s hippie vibe.  There is some distress along the front and a little on the back as well.  These shorts would have been so perfect for Coachella, and I’m quite sure we would have seen much more of them had they been available earlier.

The rise is 9 inches, but since I went up in size, they rest on my hips and feel slightly lower.  The entire length of the shorts is 10 ½ inches.  The front pockets peak through the bottom hem.  The leg opening is 22 inches with a frayed hem.  Made of 90% cotton, 6% polyester, and 4% elastane, these are very soft and feel like they’ve been worn in for you already.  They do stretch out a decent amount after a little wear, so keep that in mind when choosing your size.

Washing instructions are:  hand wash cold inside out, do not bleach, lay flat to dry, cool iron.
