In case you haven’t noticed that we are obsessed with the tomboy trend by now, we are excited to inform you that we are not the only ones!  Style experts, Christina from Oh So Glam and Cara from A Fashion Love Affair, are also loving this look.  We asked them to show us how they wear this trend by incorporating our Boy Short  into their every day style and their outfitting has made us love these shorts even more (if possible). Read on for fab styling tips from Christina and Cara and get inspired to create a tomboy look of your own.

Go for comfort with Boy Shorts and your favorite plaid.

What inspired Christina’s look:
I paired two AEO staples (this plaid shirt and boyfriend shorts) with a great pair of statement heels and messy ponytail for a laid back look.

What inspired Cara’s look:
I love boyfriend shorts – they are super easy to wear dressed up or down, perfect for those summer days when you are going from the beach to dinner! I went for a Boho inspired look, pairing my AEO shorts with a lace top and big shades.
