Essie Says: Keeping it Short and Sweet

This season there is certainly no shortage of shorts. From high-waisted hot pants to denim boy-shorts, we have seen a variety of lengths, patterns, and cuts in a range of price points. Far from the Daisy Dukes of the 80’s and 90’s, this season’s shorts come in fabrics and styles that are appropriate for almost any body-type or occasion. May fashion magazines are all featuring the turned-up cuff look coupled with blazers and slouchy tops (take a look for yourself at Barnes and Noble’s if you don’t believe us!). This week, Essie says its time for Bethesdans to give the short trend a leg-up!

~What to buy ~

Sanctuary – Peace Short – $68

With the cargo trend still lingering in the air, these of-the-moment Sanctuary shorts are neutral enough in color that they can be worn for seasons to come. Pair with thong sandals and a loose linen button down, either tucked in under a woven belt, or left out for a more casual look. Finish with a cross body leather satchel for maximum convenience and comfort.

7 For All Mankind – Roll Up Short in Vintage Honolulu – $148

After Jacob brought jorts back to life, celebrities from coast to coast have started sporting this Twilight look. To avoid looking like a 16-year-old werewolf, pair your jorts with a floral tank and pastel cardigan. Complete this feminine look with a long charm neclace and tan flats.

Blank Denim – Boyfriend Shorts – $78

Ripped denim is fun, but make sure to style them carefully to avoid looking like you’re getting ready for Talladega. We wear ours with a neutral tank, boyfriend blazer and lightweight summer scarf.

Alice + Olivia - Cady Cuff Metallic Shorts – $198

Why spend your night out tugging at the hem of your mini, or struggling for breath in your skinnies? Shorts are chic and comfortable for a night on the town. Pair yours with a gray cashmere tank, lightweight navy blazer, and a wrist-full of delicate gold bangles for a rooftop cocktail at the W.

Now, in the spirit of brevity, we’ll leave you to enjoy your weekend. Just remember, it’s time to short your stock in pants and buy shorts!
