Chambray shirt and boyfriend shorts

I'm sharing a few secrets about boyfriend shorts today. 1. If you gain weight, boyfriend shorts/jeans become regular jeans. That was my reality last year, so I found it very helpful to have a couple things in my closet that still fit! 2. Normally I recommend shopping by inseam length for shorts, but boyfriend shorts are tricky. Mine are 2.5" inseam here, but fit more like 5" because they hang low, so consider that when shopping. 3. Boyfriend shorts might be oversized, but they won't make you look oversized. They really can be flattering (not to mention, they are super comfy)! Would you wear them?
