Most of us have been through a phase in our lives where we throw on a pair of denim shorts or boyfriend jeans, just to keep things simple. Essential pieces like these are key to any wardrobe, but it is fun to spice things up with some color and geometric designs. This Fashionista traded in her practical blues for a pair relaxed and colorful bottoms. In the heat of summer, jeans or denim shorts may not always be the most comfortable choice. But nothing screams summer more than a breezy, colorful pair of shorts.

These patterns may seem a bit wild but are actually quite on-trend at the moment. These shorts come in all different patterns and colors and that is what makes them truly unique. Not only do their colors and patters vary, but many may also be available in pant form. These breezy shorts are such an essential piece for the summer and are great for going out with your friends, even if you do not like dressing up. Their versatility is what makes them unique and favorable. They can work for a relaxed lunch with friends, as a beach cover up or even paired with wedges for an evening gathering. This Fashionista created her look by wearing the shorts with a white crop top. The top exposes a little bit of skin, but hey, it is summer after all. She kept it clean by pairing her favorite black sandals and accessorized with gold jewelry. Her boho vibe was completed with a headpiece. Although her headband is not an identical pattern, I think it was fun that she incorporated another design. It brought out both patterns to create a unique outfit.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Be comfortable and play with different patterns, especially on a pair of shorts. They can really draw attention to your outfit and are definitely a statement piece!”
