We all know and love the boyfriend jean, so I am excited to see lots of boyfriend shorts at retailers this spring. I just bought two pairs from Old Navy (in both the light and dark wash) that I am hoping will fit just right. For me, a boyfriend short should be slightly distressed, and at least 3.5" long. The Old Navy shorts are 5" long, which I think will be perfect.
These of course would make a super cheap and easy DIY. Head to your local thrift shop, find a pair of denim in a loose fit and chop those babies off to short size!
I picked these examples of the boyfriend short in action to go along with my "Ladies Who Picnic" spring vibe ;) Paired with a simple button-down in a solid, gingham or chambray, and some strappy sandals and you are good to go! Which way to the park?
This is a very versatile piece that can go with anything from a tshirt and tank, or layered with a cardigan, blazer or kimono style blouse.
