Ahh finally my first post with shorts! While it might seem like I have been ignoring shorts (ok, maybe I have a little bit), it’s only because I am very picky when choosing shorts to wear that I feel are flattering. That criteria usually includes a mid-rise to high waist, loose legs, and just the right length – not too short but not too long.
I was so excited about this new short/skort trend where the loose flouncy legs look like a skirt but have the convenience of shorts. The most flattering styles I find seem to have zip up waists and not elastic waist bands because the fits are more seamless.
I finally got to wear my newest Tatyana statement ring (under $15)! The floral ring perfectly matched the floral on the shorts. It is a one-size so it actually fit my small fingers. I also wore my favorite crystal Stella earrings. The Stella earrings are fun because you can dress them up for a formal event (even bridal), or dress them down with a more casual look (ahem, these shorts!).
I’ve found some other great shorts (all under $100 linked below) that I’m thinking of buying because I loved these shorts so much.
- These have adorable ruffles
- These shorts have a cute high-waist sash bow
- This adorable print is perfect for summer
- This pair is a little shorter than I would normally go for but they are so unique
For reference I am wearing a size small, but could probably have sized down to an x-small for a more snug fit around the waist.
What do you think about this trend?!
