It's Too Hot For Jeans, So Why Not Try Boyfriend Shorts Instead?

Boyfriend jeans were the trend of the spring, but now that it is almost summer, it is time to try a shorter “boy” style. It’s just too hot to wear jeans right now, but you can still get that laid-back “borrowed from my boyfriend” look in a pair of boyfriend shorts. You might be unsure about this trend at first, because when they aren’t styled right they can look like mom jeans, but once you learn how to style them, boyfriend shorts can actually be really cute and even edgy.

Boyfriend shorts are great because they aren’t super short like most denim shorts, so you don’t have to worry about looking super scandalous or having your booty hang out. Because they have a little more length, they can also be dressed up with heels or worn with tunics and longer shirts. They are also oversized, which makes them really comfortable, and comfort is key during the hot summer months.

Not convinced yet? Check out our photo above. Style bloggers, Mija. Creators of Desire and Always Judging paired their boyfriend shorts with booties and cropped shrits for an edgier tomboy look, while Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere and Julia of Gal Meets Glam, dressed theirs up. Emily opted for a girly look by pairing her shorts with a pink striped shirt and a statement necklace, and Julia wore hers with a floral top and a blazer. These four gals just show how versatile boyfriend shorts can be.

At first, I was apprehensive about this trend too, but once I saw how my favorite bloggers styled them, it really started to grow on me. I was actually so inspired that I bought my own pair of Blank NYC Shredded Boyfriend Shorts ($99.08) and I love them! They are a great option for times when you need a little length on your shorts. And once you learn how to style them, you’ll find yourself wearing them all the time. With the styling of our favorite bloggers in mind, check out our slideshow and shop for a pair. They’re just what you need to complete your summer wardrobe.
