STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Flowy Shorts for Spring

Style Advice of the Week

As much as we love the summer and spring, there are a few downsides. I think everyone can relate to the pain of having tight shorts or pants on a hot day— especially if you are planning on eating anything and develop a food baby later on. While they are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe because they go with everything, basic denim shorts are not always the most comfortable. This season, you are delivered from the pain of wearing them every day by the latest trend: flouncy shorts.

Somewhere between shorts and a skirt, these shorts offer the style and ease of a skirt while still being practical for every occasion. To make things better, they’re often the material of pajamas. What more could you ask for? It’s basically like a socially acceptable way of wearing your loungewear out in public. It’s perfect.

This Fashionista wore a pair of these flowy shorts in a light floral pattern. The chiffon material is breezy and comfortable and gives the illusion of being more dressed up than you actually are. She paired it with a light sweater for some contrast in texture. The great thing about these shorts is that they are so versatile and you can wear them with either a tighter tank top or a looser shirt, as this Fashionista chose to.

Since the print is so bold, she elected to keep her accessories pretty simple. The gold and copper necklace is not too overbearing and her gold rings are small enough to provide detail without creating too much contrast. Another trend this season is stacking rings. You can find pretty inexpensive ones at stores such as Forever 21, making it easy to stack a few midi rings and regular rings for an effortless boho effect.

These shorts can be found in all colors, patterns and materials at both high-end and inexpensive stores, so find the store closest to you and start shopping! Dress them up with wedges or dress them down with sandals. For how versatile and comfortable they are, this is a wardrobe investment you definitely won’t regret.
