Hey my lovelies! I hope summer has been treating y’all well! I’m just trying to keep cool in this hot and humid weather we’re experiencing in FL (big surprise, right?). My weekend uniform as of late is a cotton tee or tank with a great pair of cut-off denim shorts. These Black Orchid Black Star Cut Off Shorts in Neon Pink are my recent fave!
This is my first time reviewing Black Orchid denim. It’s an LA based brand that’s only 5 years old. But don’t let the young age fool you. This brand has a pretty large celeb following, including Alessandra Ambrosio and Katherine Heigl.
The quality of this denim is amazing. It’s comprised of 92% cotton, 7% polyester, and 1% spandex. It’s super thick and super soft. Oh and the stretch? It’s impeccable. The rise is 8″, the leg opening is 23″, and the inseam is 2 ½”. I think the length of these shorts is perfect. Not too short. I’m obsessed with the neon pink hue and I really love the black stud detailing on the back pocket. I always love when a brand adds fun details that aren’t over the top. Just enough detail to give it some character.
My overall opinion of these shorts is that they’re perfect for summer. Neon is definitely a color meant for the summer – looks great with tan skin. I will say that I wish I would’ve gone down a size. However, I was unaware that Black Orchid runs larger than most denim brands. I typically wear a size 28 in most brands, but these shorts could have been snugger. I feel a size 27 would’ve fit better. With that said, these cut-offs are super sexy, but still sophisticated. They’re a ton of fun to wear too! I’d also pair these shorts with a chambray or denim shirt, or even a printed top with pops of pink in it.
I’m eager to try some other styles by Black Orchid denim. These shorts were super comfy and as I said above, the denim quality is top notch. Right now I have my eyes on their Black Jewel Zipper Skinny and their Coated denim. Too perfect for fall, right?
