Splurge vs Steal: Distressed Boyfriend Shorts

Rag & Bone "The Boyfriend Shorts" - SHOPBOP, American Eagle Distressed Shorts, sold out - Gap (similar)

These distressed Rag & Bone boyfriend shorts have become so ubiquitous on fashion blogger's outfit posts I've written them off as overplayed. Don't get me wrong, I love a good, comfy, over-sized denim boyfriend short to wear all summer long.  What I find ridiculous, is women my age are forking over $200 for a.pair.of.shorts. I'm sorry, I don't play that way. Unless those shorts make my legs look like Emma Watson's, I'll take my $170 savings, and go on a shopping spree. 

Enough about people spending their money foolishly, because frankly, that's their business. These American Eagle shorts have become a true staple this summer. Truthfully, I ordered them last summer, and they were TIGHT. But just like I like them, with every wear, they stretched out to the perfect baggy style, and I've worn them 2-3 times a week this summer. Now that's $35 well spent.

What's the most you've spent on shorts? Was it worth it?

I buy almost all of my shorts at AE and theyre so much cheaper than others! Not to mention not bad quality when it comes to their pants. xo

Totally agree! It was my first purchase there in a while but I'm so glad I did! I'm never getting rid of these babies!

You would probably get a great deal on them with the exchange rate! That's allowed!
