It’s that awkward time of year when it’s starting to get warm (if it’s not already hot) and you need shorts out of some kind of necessity, be it a vacation or immediate and oppressive everyday heat, it’s a garment that is often a need but not quite a want. For those ready to show some skin, we’ve brought you the answer to your shorts prayers: the Parker in Swapmeet from AGOLDE.
We love that these are short without being too short, the particular magic is the fitted waist which opens into a relaxed and loose cutoff leg opening, lending further to the illusion that you’re wearing the perfectly slouchy, vintage boyfriend short. The best part is never having to endure the misery of breaking in your 100% cotton denim, then having your bff painstakingly cut them off your legs inch by inch. Swapmeet is the ideal shade of light blue with the perfect touch of light destruction and fraying without looking wrestled from a tiger. These are an easy and obvious beach/poolside answer, so instead we’re giving you a style guide for three different ways to wear these shorts in the city.
