Happy Monday, friends! It's no surprise you've seen paper bag shorts all over Instagram and the blogosphere. These shorts are prefect for a clean, polished look in the blazing summer. The materials are typically breathable cotton and linen blends allowing you to give your jean shorts a break. Below are a few ways to style them!
There's nothing better than finding the perfect pair of shorts and these blue striped shorts are the perfect go-to. The front tie style of these shorts helps set them apart from any other shorts and brings it up a notch! And the tone of the blue makes it great to pair with any color top!
This week I decided to keep the blue trend going and set these shorts up with a navy tank top. The two different tones of blue went together really well and helped enhance each other more! Since the shorts have skinny white stripes I decided to wear a white knit button top as an outer layer! The flowy shirt goes hand in hand with the tucked in tank.
I accessorized with a fun yellow headband with little white and navy flowers. The yellow really pops and makes my outfit stand out even more! The yellow color of the white and navy flowers also helps accent the tank top and sweater I'm wearing. I decided to go with a small silver key necklace. I chose this necklace because it's so tiny and doesn't take away from my outfit but still adds to it.
This outfit is definitely one of my faves for the summer. I would wear this outfit to a fun picnic at the park or a backyard BBQ! If it gets too hot I can easily take off the sweater and even swap my sandals out for some wedges and have a fun time day drinking in Midtown!
These vintage washed black and white pinstriped shorts are perfect for an effortless style that looks well put together. With their elastic ruched waistband and waist ties, it gives some drama, and the pockets give them functionality.
I decided to style these shorts with light neutral colors. A white cozy fit cropped knit with accompanying white bralette brightened up the look. I tied a satin print handkerchief around my curls to create a pineapple style up-do. I continued to play up this casual style with details. Gorgeous blue and white crystal stud earrings catch the eye.
Stone bracelets with gold detail seem to catch all of the neutral hues incorporated in this look. A delicate gold necklace with neutral beads draws the attention to the exposed decollete. I finished the look with gold mirror lens aviator sunglasses, a pink nude lip color and gray-nude heels. This look is perfect for a lazy Sunday with friends, a weekend barbecue, or a casual date night!
This week's item is a fun piece to have in your closet for summer and could easily transition into the early days of fall. Which is what inspired my outfit this week.
These shorts come in different colors and designs, but for my choice I decided on the tan ones with a thin white stripe. I lean more towards neutral colors so I knew this would pair perfectly with my closet already. I added a simple white tank underneath it and added a mustard sweater on top. The colors compliment each other well and the sweater is a perfect piece to keep you a little warmer while you wear the shorts.
I paired all of this with a simple statement necklace. I loved the gold detailing to go with the outfit because it complimented the tan and mustard very well and the brown fringe on the necklace tied in my clogs. With shorts I always add a shoe that gives me a little bit more height to give the illusion that my legs are longer, because hello that 5'2" height needs all the help it can get!
It's been in the (very) high 90s to low 100s the last couple weeks in Sacramento, so staying cool and comfortable has been key! However, with all the running around I do sometimes its not practical to wear dresses and I feel when I wear jean shorts too often I get in a fashion slump. Enters the paper bag shorts! This week I styled the light blue solid paper bag shorts.
I paired the shorts with our shimmery mustard bodysuit. My favorite detail about this bodysuit is the fabric! I feel like it's a bit elevated compared to a basic bodysuit and it can be worn for more special occasions or going out for date night. The drapey front is perfect for going braless and I get the fitted look of a bodysuit with a bit more coverage.
Since it's been so hot I pulled my hair up in a messy topnot and left a bit of hair down to frame my face. To take away from the messy hair style (or to add to it) I adorned my hair with our new knot headbands! This one has light yellow polka dots sprinkled throughout that pulls it together with the bodysuit. I finished my look with an evil eye layered necklace!
How cute are these blue and white striped paper bag shorts? I went for a very laid back, casual look and paired them with a fitted black tank top to show off the detail of the waist.
I kept the accessories minimal and dainty. I am sort of a plain Jane and I love neutrals, so these gold stud earrings were perfect for this outfit. I also chose a cute little gold necklace with a little sparkle to tie it all together.
This outfit would be great for dinner with your girlfriends, or Sunday brunch! Easy and simple!
