One of the things that I love about the summer is that you can be daring when it comes to putting outfits together for the day. Summer is the perfect season to incorporate bold colors and prints into your wardrobe. As I was walking around campus, this week’s featured Fashionista instantly caught my attention. She was wearing high-waisted navy blue shorts that had an adorable bow tie print. She chose to pair the shorts with a casual white V-neck T-shirt and black combat boots that added a touch of edge to her outfit. Her accessories included a simple silver necklace and bracelet as well as a yellow backpack.
Her outfit is the perfect combination of an edgy yet feminine look that features one of this summer’s most popular and versatile trends, high-waisted printed shorts. One of the great things about printed shorts is that they are an excellent way to add a pop of color and boldness to any outfit. Some of the most popular prints for shorts this summer include floral, striped, abstract patterns, paisley and tribal prints.
If you want to incorporate printed shorts into your wardrobe then there are a couple of ways to do so. For a casual look similar to this week’s featured Fashionista’s, start off by choosing a pair of high-waisted shorts of your liking. These Gemini polka-dot shorts from Free People or these oasis rose print shorts from ASOS are two options that would look great with a lightweight cotton T-shirt. Accessorize the look with strappy sandals and simple jewelry. These shorts can also be worn from day to night by switching up that cotton T-shirt with a dressier top like this flowy tie-front chiffon blouse from H&M. Finally, accessorize the ensemble with statement jewelry and a pair of pumps or ankle booties.
