The Shorts Story

Printed shorts are a big hit for this season. Previously, the most daring thing about shorts was their length, now you’ll find shorts in an array of luxurious fabrics and prints. Seen on runways like Alexander Wang and Fendi these tailored beauties are available in many bright colors and elaborate fabrics.
 
Not just for the beach any longer, paired with a lovely silk blouse these fashion phenoms lend a truly high class feel that will take you from day to night. This pair of shorts below from Diane von Furstenburg are the epitome of this trend. Featuring a gorgeous print and made of silk, these shorts are suitable for any summertime event. I paired them with these adorable wedges from CJG to achieve a look that will work for brunch, lunch or dancing the night away. Top off this style with some delicate accessories like this feather pendant and some bangles in a gold tone. For a daytime look, I love this leather bucket bag from Dooney & Burke but you could dress it up a bit more with a clutch.
 
A tip for choosing printed shorts: try to avoid fabrics or prints that resemble pajama pants. Drawstrings can be tricky too, DVF pulls it off here but use caution so you don’t look like you forgot to get dressed before leaving the house!
