My favorite look so far this summer also happens to be the easiest to style: patterned shorts. These have been gaining popularity for a while, and for good reason! You can throw on some shorts, a loose tee and sandals in the morning for a daytime-casual look, and then switch into a crop top and flatforms or wedges for a night look. My favorite thing about these shorts are how comfortable they are. I prefer the looser cut so I can still move around in them. Most of the patterned shorts have a wide color scheme, so you can wear almost any color with them.
Check out these specific pairs:
Urban Outfitters has so many cute options for patterned shorts, but these two were my favorite!
Nasty Gal always has so many patterned shorts in stock. I love this pair because the lace trim can help to dress up the shorts a lot!
Tobi, one of my favorite online shopping websites, has some great options as well! I love the ruffle at the bottom of this pair!
These shorts look great on so many body types, go with everything, and are super comfortable. They are all the rage, so almost any store in your price range will have some! If you are crafty, pick up a pattern and some cool fabric (vintage fabrics are great for these!) and sew them yourself!
