“Coachella” and “destroyed denim shorts” might as well be considered synonymous. It goes without saying. But the media tends to portray the high waisted, hip hugging Daisy Duke sort more than any other! When summer and festival season comes around, it’s good to have a staple pair of denim shorts in your style arsenal, and if you’re like me, you might be looking for something a little different. Here is music artist K.Flay in DL1961 shorts, wearing the Karlie Short in Baker. This is the brand’s pretty neat rendition of a boyfriend short, with light distressing, an 8.25″ rise and a 5.75″ inseam for just a little more everyday coverage. Just like its full-length jean counterparts, it’s made of their innovative DLX 4-Way Stretch Twill, with a 63% cotton, 35% Promodal and 2% elastane fabric content. Speaking of staples, we all know black jeans fit the bill, so these are an awesome choice if you are in the market for a pair of shorts you can wear to both music festivals and everyday life events.
