Shorts are part and parcel of many a summer ensemble – but finding a flattering pair can be tricky, to say the least.

If you are on the hunt for a pair that aren't too short, but are also a step away from cropped trousers, then we may just have found the ideal style for you - Marks and Spencer's Denim Boyfriend Shorts.

Pair with a t-shirt, shirt, or smart blouse, trainers, or flat sandals, these denim shorts are a wardrobe essential. (M&S)

Why we rate it 

The Denim Boyfriend Shorts are made from a sustainably sourced cotton and elastane blend, which provides extra comfort thanks to the added stretch. 

They are a high-waisted design, and are a slightly longer length than many high street denim designs with an inside leg length measuring 20cm for a size 12 short. 

The stylish design features a flattering rolled up hem and belt loops. 

The shorts come in five colours: soft white, a dusty pink pastel hue, light indigo, dark indigo and khaki, all of which come in UK dress sizes 6 to 24. 

The best part is they cost an affordable £25 from Marks and Spencer. 

Whether you pair them with a tank top or T-shirt and trainers for running errands, with flat sandals and a summer top for relaxing in the sun, or a more formal chic shirt for summer BBQs - there are plenty of styling options.
