This week: I am an active mom and therefore skirts and dresses can be tricky for me in summer, but I love fashion and I don’t want to dress down. I think some cute printed shorts would work great for me. Can you help me find some? –Jessica
Hi Jessica. Shorts definitely sound like a great option for you, plus they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. We like the print on Harvey Faircloth’s Ikat Shorts ($68), not to mention the heavy discount! J Brand’s 1296 Lola Shorts ($127) have a soft pattern that is oh-so pretty, as do Free People’s High-Waist Printed Shorts ($60). Whit’s Flounce Shorts ($158) and Tucker’s High-Waisted Shorts ($220) both have a high-end vibe that is great for your next big event. Finally, Oasis’s Gatsby Printed Shorts ($50) have a beachy-ready feel. Happy shopping!
