Shorts, naturally

by Amanda Bedgood

Cool fabrics and neutral hues

Nothing says summer like the perfect pair of shorts. Pair that with cool linen or sweet lace in neutral shades and you've got a new wardrobe staple for these hot summer days.

Vanessa V. does the uber versatile short in raw linen (they also carry them in black and must-have coral) we're digging with a simple blue shirt. Throw on your favorite tank or a flowy hippie shirt with gladiators. Lace elastic-waist shorts from Shoe La La are the perfect solution for the boho gal. Try with a flower crown and vintage little bag. At Maven we're digging the lace up shorts with a cute little cuff. The sort of piece that goes preppy a la nautical or funky with an off-the-shoulder top.
