The Daily Edit: The Boy Short
The Boy short: Admired by some, worn by few and feared by many. Here Ill show you what to wear them with and how to pull them off.
Ok, this is a bit of a tricky one. The boy short, or baggy cotton short in layman terms, is a tough nut to crack. While the look is super on trend at the moment it can be quite diificult to pull off and because of this people seem to avoid them like the plague.
I am here to restore your faith in the boy short and to show you the best way to wear them. Believe it or not, the boy short is an incredibly transeasonal piece. The longer line means they can be worn in winter with a knit and some boots but are also light enough to wear in summer with a t-shirt and sandals.
My favourite time to whip out the boy short is early spring when its not too hot and not too cold, when the sun is hot and beaming but there is still a crispness to the air. Spring definitley is the season these shorts were made for. They are so tricky to wear so pulling them out in spring gives you more options than just wearing them with a singlet OR a knit as you could really go either way.
I am quite tall so I feel as though I could get away with wearing these shorts with flats however I think it creates a much nicer more feminine line when worn with a pair of heels.
One last thing to remember, If you are going to invest in a pair of these shorts they should always ALWAYS have pockets. Not to keep things in of course but to rest your hands in… It just gives the whole outfit a much nicer shape, and lets agree, it looks way cooler!
