Black Shorts

Ever since I spied Melanie Huynh wearing black shorts on Instagram, I’ve been searching for a similar pair. They’re not that easy to find. So, when I saw these by Frame Denim, I ordered three different sizes just to be sure.

Shorts, cotton blouse, fringed tote, slides, earrings.

  • How did the frames fit? I am always looking for perfect shorts, I have skinny thighs and no waist definition so all the shorts that fit my waist are too baggy in the thigh/leg area.

  • Gosh, I thought I was in an odd minority here when it comes to fitting shorts. I will also be waiting to hear about the fit lol!

  • I love black cotton separates for summer in the city! I might have to swap the shorts for a slim crop pant or a skirt. My time meter on short shorts has expired, unfortunately. Wear them while you can, because one day, without any advance notice, you can’t (or at least shouldn’t). : )

  • Where are the earrings from?

  • These slides look exactly like my comfortable Dr. Scholl’s that I wore all summer in 1969 while wandering around Europe.

  • Where have I been? Black denim shorts have never crossed my mind, but what a wonderful and wearable option!!! I can’t wait to hear how the FRAME pair fits so I can order ASAP!

  • Love black in the summer, but like Paula, I’ve aged out of shorts except for the beach or something. It’s a great shirt.

  • Ha! I jotted that comment off before reading everyone else’s comments. Good to know im not alone, ladies! Wish one of these denim brands would offer a cut with a slight angle for a more flattering style for the many of us who don’t have the thighs of a model.

  • I tried on the Frame shorts today-in a very cute white/off white stripe. I tried on my regular size and they fit-the saleswomen said they were very cute. They fit in a slim 70’s shorts kind of way. However I like my shorts slouchy, so I would probably size up.

  • I went down a size and I’m waiting for an even smaller pair to arrive. The shorts are adorable and super comfortable.

  • One of my favorite silhouettes for summer

  • Thanks ladies, off to find them.
