Summer Must-Have: Linen Shorts
There are some absolute must-haves for Summer. For example, fun hats, maxi dresses, good cover ups and a go-to swimmy. But another Summer must-have is the linen short, one of my favorite pieces to wear during hot Summer days. Today, we're talking linen shorts, and the details to this fun outfit I wore in St Barths.
I personally love how light linen is as a fabric, in general, and it's perfect for Summer so you don’t sweat. It really is the quintessential summer fabric. This particular pair offers belt loops so you can further accentuate your waist with the white belt that comes with the pair of shorts. You can also ditch the one that comes with the shorts and add your own as well. These have a paper-bag design on the top as the fabric bunches up like a paper bag – it’s a fun and unique take on a pair of shorts.
These linen shorts in particular are great too because they’re dressier in nature, making them a bit more versatile and more appropriate for dressier casual affairs – such as brunch at a nice lunch spot, strolling town while on vacation, or at a baby shower or similar event.
Styling Linen Shorts
For this walking-around-the-vacation-town look, I first picked the shorts and then paired them with a fun off-the-shoulder polka-dot top. It has fun puffy sleeves and is a great addition to any summer outfit whether with these pair of shorts, maxi skirt, linen trouser, or high-waisted denim.
For accessories, I went for a chic yet affordable pair of shoes from DSW but are currently sold out there so I linked below to where they are still available. I love these so much, that they were the feature of a recent Hot Shoe Alert, my weekly shoe review series.
Finally, I added was a fun bamboo bag, from Cult Gaia, which was also a Hot Bag Alert feature last year, and then topped it off - literally - a black straw hat.
The sunglasses are a super fun pair from Miu Miu, available at Sunglass Hut.
Before you go: let me know in the comments below: which is your favorite piece of the look and why! Look forward to your responses.
