I’ve had a love hate relationship with shorts.
I have always loved the idea of them. They look phenomenally chic, keep you cool in the heat, and are super easy for pulling on over a swimsuit after a day at the beach.
Yet shorts have rarely loved me. I’m a 5ft10 woman with thunder thighs and big hips. My butt, more often than not, has eaten the shorts turning them into little more than a thong. That or they’ve rolled up around my thunder thighs and caused painful chaffing.
I’d given up on shorts some time ago. But when I saw this Elvi clothing shorts, I just knew I couldn’t not give them a go.

As you can probably tell, I wasn’t disappointed! And these shorts have been worn to death!
They’re made from a chinlon which is a man-made fabric but smoother and less static than polyester. It is also a heavier fabric which stops that shorts from rolling up or losing their shape when moving about.
I think this is what makes them so perfect! That and the high-waisted, a-line style with a matching fabric belt which make the shorts feel more like tailored workwear than the usual cargo shorts that use to be my only options when it came to shorts that fit!

As you can see, I’ve worn these shorts a lot with this heat wave.
That is part of having a capsule wardrobe where I can mix and match the separates in my wardrobe without fear of feeling too repetitive. But it is mostly because I love the shorts so very much!
The colour pop just sings and look fabulous against my (ahem-fake) tan and they look phenomenal with shirts, camisoles, prints, and jumpers alike. I even like the idea of wearing them with a matching blazer for work – although that would require Elvi creating such a piece. I hope you’re listening Elvi!

The shorts are priced at £39 and come in size 8 – 28 and fit very true to size. They also come in white which I am so tempted to buy, but now I’d spill coffee in seconds!
