Do you guys love summer? I certainly do! Always look forward to hanging outside and enjoying the sunny weather. And of course I am stoked to finally wear all of my summer stuff that was lying forgotten in the back of the closet all winter. Light-weight tops and tees, open sandals and lots and lots of shorts. One of my new loves this year is the boyfriend fit short. This review is about an excellent pair – the Siwy Avery Denim Short in Let It Happen.
For such a small piece of clothing a good pair of shorts is not the easiest to find. With minimum coverage they can show and even highlight some features that you’d rather not. But a pair of proper shorts will make you look longer and leaner and so much hotter! The Siwy Avery Denim Short is exactly one of those. The slightly roomier fit with wider leg opening has a leg slimming effect and almost stretches out the overall silhouette. The longer two-level inseam with shorter front vs. back and flirty side slits increase this effect even more. This construction also creates a more womanly appeal in a generally boyish look.
I also find this boyfriend fit simply perfect for particularly hot days. Here in Southern Switzerland/Northern Italy summers get pretty steamy with temperatures reaching 100-105 Fahrenheit. On days like that anything even remotely tight sounds just dreadful! But Siwy Avery Denim Short with more “breathing” room are very comfortable and in fact the ideal choice even for the sizzling summers we’ve been experiencing lately.
My Siwy Avery is done in a very cool wash called Let It Happen. With its light blue, worn-out color, handsanding and quite extensive distressing it suits the “boyfriend” silhouette so well. Together with the fringed and slightly uneven cut-off hemline it gives this piece a very effortless and laid-back while edgy vibe. No matter what you wear these shorts with they will bring individuality and unique style to any outfit and will look simply fantastic.
You probably already gathered that this Siwy Avery Denim Short is unbelievably comfortable. Their relaxed fit with smooth low-sitting waistband really gives you the ultimate sense of ease while wearing them. Light-weight and very soft fabric with the content of 64% Lyocell, 34% Cotton and 2% Elastane feels great next to the skin adding even more points to an already ultra high level of comfort.
Ordering online or like in my case receiving denim to review without trying it on first can be tricky. It is always a little bit of a gamble with sizing. However some brands show great consistency and Siwy is certainly one of those. So far my usual size has been a perfect fit in a few different silhouettes and fits including this pair of shorts.
I can talk about the Siwy Avery Denim Short in Let It Happen for a long time but at the end of the day THEY ARE JUST AWESOME! They really are an excellent choice for a hot beach vacay or a stylish summer in the city.
