Animal Prints. Florals. Dots. Stripes.
Have you noticed all the printed shorts around the mall? I’m spotting them everywhere in varying lengths and styles.
Here are just a few finds from Francesca’s Collections, dELiA*s and The Limited.
These two pairs had just arrived when I popped into Francesca’s Collections (Level 4)! Bring out any of the colors in a multi-hued striped pair like these by adding a tee or tank in one of the colors featured or finish with a white top. Just about any color tee or tank will work with a floral print like this one.
At dELiA*s (Level 1), you’ll find a display with printed shorts in the spotlight and more choices throughout the store! You can make your outfits multiply fast with a few pairs of patterned shorts and different color tanks.
Here’s a closer look at some of the fun patterns, including a cheery Ikat pattern, multiple florals and a muted animal print.
Over at The Limited (Level 3), I found standout shorts of varying lengths.
Note the pattern play of dots and stripes in this outfit. If you want to try mixing patterns from top to bottom, dots and stripes in the same color story are an easy way to go.
Here’s another take on dots at The Limited in a longer style. These are the Metro shorts. They also come in solids.
This neutral pair is subtle and stands out all at once! Dress up a style like this one with a jacket and sandals or pair them with a tank and flip-flops for a more casual vibe.
If you could wear any of the shorts featured in this post on the next warm day, which one would you pick?
