I’ve been in a shorts kind of mood lately, and Current/Elliott always has such comfortable styles.  These are a little different from their Boyfriend shorts, which we’ve reviewed several times in the past (see the most recent one in Summer Love here).  These are Current/Elliott The Festival Shorts.

The fit on these shorts is a little different than what I’m used to coming from Current/Elliott.  They’re more fitted.  In fact, I’d say they run about one size smaller than Current/Elliott shorts typically run.  If you’re familiar with Current/Elliott sizing, many of their jeans run on the larger side compared to most other standard designer sizing. But these shorts are more true to size.

The color is called Shipwreck Destroy which is a medium blue that’s faded and has distress along the front and back pockets and also some light distress along the waistband.  The front pockets are shorter on the inside, so they don’t peak through at the bottom hem as many shorter shorts tend to do.

The leg opening is 20 inches, which has a frayed hem and also a 2 ½ inch side slit on each side to create a little bit of a flare.  The rise is 8 ½ inches which has a hidden button fly.   Made of 90% cotton, 6% polyester, and 4% elastane, the material doesn’t have a lot of elasticity.  They do stretch out a little after wear, but not as much as Current/Elliott typically does.  The inseam is 2 ½ inches.  (Measurements may vary slightly with different sizes.)

Washing instructions are:  Machine wash cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low, iron low heat.
