Shorts are part and parcel of many a summer ensemble – but finding a flattering pair can be tricky, to say the least.
If you are on the hunt for a pair that aren't too short, but are also a step away from cropped trousers, then we may just have found the ideal style for you - Marks and Spencer's Denim Boyfriend Shorts.
Why we rate it
The Denim Boyfriend Shorts are made from a sustainably sourced cotton and elastane blend, which provides extra comfort thanks to the added stretch.
They are a high-waisted design, and are a slightly longer length than many high street denim designs with an inside leg length measuring 20cm for a size 12 short.
The stylish design features a flattering rolled up hem and belt loops.
The shorts come in five colours: soft white, a dusty pink pastel hue, light indigo, dark indigo and khaki, all of which come in UK dress sizes 6 to 24.
The best part is they cost an affordable £25 from Marks and Spencer.
Whether you pair them with a tank top or T-shirt and trainers for running errands, with flat sandals and a summer top for relaxing in the sun, or a more formal chic shirt for summer BBQs - there are plenty of styling options.
What the reviews say
M&S' Denim Boyfriend Shorts may only be new in, but they have already proved to be a huge hit with shoppers. Here's what they have to say:
"The fit and style, very pleased with. The best pair of shorts I've bought in a long time, may order another colour."
"Brought the denim boyfriend shorts recently. So happy with the fit, I ordered another pair."
"I bought a pair of these in the light coloured denim. They fitted like a glove and are so comfy, so I ordered the darker denim pair."
"I bought these shorts in khaki I loved them so much I bought the blush colour also, they are so comfy and they are slightly longer in length than my normal shorts which I love. Great shorts M&S."
"These shorts have a soft feel against your legs with plenty of stretch around the waist, hips and thighs. They look great with any top."
"I bought myself a pair of these shorts, was so impressed that I bought my two daughters a pair each and I’ve since bought the pink colour as well. They are the most comfortable shorts I have ever bought."
