Summer casual clothing feel wonderful when you’re outdoors in the sun, but continuing that carefree feeling through the year is easy—whether you move it indoors in the colder months, or you’re traveling somewhere warm. Growing up, I had a regular habit of practically living in shorts and adapting to the changing weather by pairing them with either a tank, T-shirt, or sweatshirt. Problem solved.
I recently tested the Jungmaven Sun Short, and it immediately brought back memories of those summer days of freedom. Made from 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton, the classic jersey short is as comfortable as wearing pajamas, but look far better. The slightly relaxed fit with an elastic waistband makes the short versatile for lounging, hiking, or enjoying pau hana time at the beach with a cocktail in your hand.
There’s an internal adjustable flat woven draw cord for adjusting fit, and two side slash pockets that are large enough for your phone, cash, cards, or keys.
The garment-dyed fabric calls to mind old-school casual beachwear, and 20 different color choices let you find your favorite, or get multiples so you can expand your wardrobe.
The Jungmaven brand emphasizes hemp, a natural fiber that thrives almost anywhere with very little impact to the environment. It requires no irrigation, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or GMO seeds, and one hectare of industrial hemp absorbs more than 24 tons of CO2.
The Sun Short lists for $94 and comes in a rainbow of colors: black, canvas, cherry red, clay green, copper, coyote, diesel gray, dusty pink (pictured), ether blue, grape soda, jade green, margarita, misty lilac, navy, rose quartz, summer glass, sunshine yellow, surf blue, terracotta, and washed white.
