The New Shorts


Shorts have always been an obsession of mine. Swapping out your skinny jeans for a pair of structured shorts is such an easy way to transition your wardrobe into spring and looks chic and casual all at the same time. While denim shorts are of course a must-have, I’m in love with this new silhouette – the loose fitting short (particularly these ones from Anthropologie).

The toughest thing about shorts is finding a pair that is flattering for your legs. And the best way to accomplish this is with looser shorts that don’t hug your thighs. That’s why this new shorts trend is high on my list this season. Try them in different prints and textures, like florals or leather. Pair them with a slouchy tee, a light knit, or even a silk blouse to dress them up. I love how they look with booties, but you could wear them with sandals or even heels at night. See how I styled them below:
