A great pair of shorts is a key component in effortless summer styling. The trick is to find a silhouette that lands somewhere between too-sexy daisy dukes and tourist-magnet bermudas. Two of our stylists have found the solution in perfectly slouchy boyfriend shorts.
“Slouchy, longer styles are comfortable and easy to wear. I picked a slightly distressed pair, so that even with the longer length, there’s a peek of skin, so they don’t feel too conservative.” says Phoebe. “Pairing them with heels can be tough—it can easily veer into showgirl territory—but a sporty style with a sensible, wearable heel height makes them feel just right.”
Karina created a more menswear-inspired look for herself. “Although I usually love the proportion of a body-con top with boyfriend shorts, the iridescent sheen on this pair from Faith Connexion was itching to be styled with more masculine shirt. A slim pump balances out the volume up top, and sleek gold jewelry pulls it all together. It’s comfy and slouchy but still sexy.”
