While I love my jorts and Lululemon shorts, sometimes you have to wear something a little less casual. Fun printed and textured shorts with a cute top are a great outfit choice when you're sick of summery dresses. Here are my favorite options.
Embellished I found the J. Crew shorts shown in option number one above on sale (!!) online and they're my new go-to shorts! I feel extra tan when I'm in them (always a plus), and they're so so comfortable.
Going out When it's hot outside, I'm not really into wearing jeans when I go out. Instead of wearing a bandage skirt (I always get paranoid that my booty is completely exposed), flowy shorts with a little top work as a great alternative. I have the pair shown in option number two (above) in a different pattern, and I wore then when I went to Myrtle Beach for my college's post-exam beach week. Definitely my favorite outfit of the weekend!
Casual Printed shorts with a white tank top is probably the easiest and most reliable weekend outfit. Jack Wills has an adorable tie-belt pair (another great sale find), and Vineyard Vines has such cute options as well!
Lace White or black lace shorts are super summery, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I have a pair from J. McLaughlin, two from Lilly Pulitzer, and I have my eye on a pair from Free People.
