How to wear denim boy shorts


J BRAND shorts via Avenue 32, sandals, bag, bracelet, sunglasses, ring, headphones and necklace also via Avenue 32. TOPSHOP top.  

I got my first pair of J-brand jeans about a year ago in an outlet mall in the middle of Nevada. They were black waxed ones because 1) they were half price and 2) I was really bored of my Topshop ones losing their shine after two washes. A year later and my J-brands still shimmer like a newly waxed Cadillac (I have no actual idea what this might look like, or if one even waxes a car- but they're shiny is the underlying point) so I'm a happy bunny.
Since then I've bought a couple more pairs to reward my legs for the top standard they do of keeping me upright everyday- but jeans are all fine and easy to style. What about denim boy shorts? 

While ideally I'd say don  a bikini and roll around in some sand/salt and then pretend to be Australian, that is arguably not the most practical styling option. So instead, I decided these J-brand shorts needed a little bit o' girl. Cue rose-golds and metallics, lacey shirts and pinky shades of make-up.
Boy shorts definitely run the risk of looking very bearded hipster male but while that isn't a bad thing, it maybe isn't everyone's look. I can't grow a beard, so it certainly isn't mine. The typical 'girlishness' of the outfit is tempered by the laid-back I-might-have-stolen-these-from-my-boyfriend-but-I-don't have-a-boyfriend-so-I-actually-bought-them low rise cut offs that I really think might end up in my wardrobe soon.
Hold me back.

Hey you! How are you today? Your hair looks awesome like that. Thanks for taking the time to comment, I love hearing what you guys think and value every word you write more than you could possibly imagine. With that in mind, I value your constructive criticism too; if you disagree with something I've said, if you think I could have mentioned something else or if you want me to discuss something in the future, I want to know. However, there is a clear difference between constructive criticism and rudeness; the latter will be receive a meet and greet from my delete button. I will find you, and I will lick you; no one wants that, so play nice.
