Obsessed with: Patterned Shorts

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Since I live by the coast, it's sometimes hard to realize that it's actually warm, summery weather right now in most of the US. We get a lot of nice and clear days, but the clouds, patches of fog, and sea breeze are usually around to keep everything cool. Because of this, I don't really get the opportunity to wear shorts very often (though with my uber pale legs, I might be doing the world a favor!) But I have to admit, I have been loving the patterned woven shorts and culottes trend that has been happening. These types of shorts are very versatile outfit-wise, dressed up with a blazer and ankle boots or down with a cozy sweater. Now, I am a curvy girl, and these wide-legged shorts seem to work so well with my body type and make me feel comfortable and confident. Honestly, they seem to look cute on almost anyone! I own the zigzag patterned ones from H&M because when I was in Rome with my sister, I saw them everywhere and on all sorts of women, and each time they looked amazing. Might be a Sisterhood of the Traveling Zigzag Shorts type of thing!

How are you guys feeling about this trend? Do you own a pair or can you not stand them? Do you end up wearing them when you dress up or more casually?

  1. These are the great picks! I really want some patterned shorts but can't seem to find the right ones for me (partly because I try to avoid polyester). I clicked the link to the Nordstrom ones and they have a lot of cute ones - might have to order a pair or two :)
