Spring is finally here! The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and patterned shorts are adding much needed color to pale winter legs. A hot trend this season, patterned shorts are a great way to embrace the warming temperatures. In contrast to skirts, these colorful bottoms not only provide coverage, but also comfort. Most recently, fashionistas have been taking this comfy trend to the next level by pairing them with more structured and dressy tops. This casual chic combination provides you with the best of both worlds.
Are you constantly faced with the dilemma of choosing between an edgy or girly style? Why not choose both? Combine a fitted blazer that incorporates edgy elements like studs or zippers with a pair of shorts with bold florals. Experiment with different patterns and colors until you find that perfect combination that embodies your unique and one-of-a-kind style!
