Jean shorts are an absolute summer essential. We can all agree on that, right? But there's a way to do it wrong (wearing a too-tight, too-short, too-distressed pair) and there's a way to do it right. These boyfriend shorts from Gap are definitely the latter.
They're long enough that they won't ride up your thighs when you walk and loose enough to stay in place when you sit. The slouchy fit gives any outfit that effortless look that just screams summer — hell, you could probably even pair these with a crop top and not look like you're trying too hard. They're comfortable, cute, practical and they'll make your legs look tiny. Wear them with a crisp white shirt and revel in the fact that you got them on sale.
