Is anyone else is tired of wearing plain denim shorts all the time? I know I am. Patterned, cotton shorts are all the rage this summer. They’re comfortable and cute. You can find them at almost any retail store in a variety of colors, prints and patterns. These shorts are a staple piece in any Fashionista’s wardrobe. They are breathable for those hot summer days, and they can easily be dressed up or down. Whether it’s with a crop top or a baggy T-shirt, you need to get yourself a pair of these babies!

This Fashionista’s patterned shorts are perfect for this summer heat. When wearing patterned shorts, you always want to keep your look simple; they are your focus! Too many patterns can be overwhelming, so always try to stick with a solid colored top to break up the look. Our Fashionista paired her white floral shorts with a solid black T-shirt and simple accessories.  The rose gold Marc by Marc Jacobs watch and Alex and Ani bracelets dress up the look without stealing the show. She is ready to take on the heat with this cool and comfortable outfit.

How To: Want to take your daytime casual look to the next level? Pair these patterned shorts with a black cropped top, and ditch the gladiator sandals. Add a pair of plain black heels to give yourself some height, but still keep the look simple. You can also add a black leather jacket if it’s chilly. After these simple changes you are all set for a night out on the town!
