Mom Shorts: My New Favorite Summer Style

If this outfit looks familiar, you have a good eye. To me, it is the shorts and bare-arm version of this look. I recently had an epiphany: mom jeans are the best style of denim and mom shorts are even better! Hear me out.

Modest Length

I can’t speak for you, but some of my biggest pet peeves are when skirts or shorts ride up. It’s like with every step you take, you have to pull down your bottoms. #Annoying. I’m not into the whole “cheeky” thing unless I’m at the beach! Mom shorts are a huge fashionista satisfier because they are the appropriate length haute out of the box. They are also a high rise garment, alleviating the chance of them riding up even more. Hooray!

Modest Fit

Similar to the full-length jean that you’re accustomed to, mom jeans are made for mobility. They are a working girl’s kind of short. Not only are the modest in length, but they’re forgiving in fit. Ain’t no such thing as a pair of skin tight mom shorts! Tip: pair your mom shorts with a belt for a waist-slimming fit (as seen here). I love this pair because it is a stylish take on a classic garment. The metallic sheen adds just enough character without taking away the functionality.
