Shorts for Warm Weather.

*Image above from 2009 (!) of the ever-chic Lauren Santo Domingo wearing Chloe. Chloe still puts out scalloped shorts, nearly 12 seasons later, and you can find them here. J. Crew does a much shorter length variation here (06. below) for $30! Note LSD’s styling, though — tres chic!

After my post on cute shorts for little ones, a few of you reached out to ask for recommendations on shorts for women this upcoming season! I am really intrigued by paper bag waist shorts this season, a la L’Agence, Splendid, and of course the must-have SEA Dax shorts (<<fully stocked!; 04. below). If you like the look but want something a little more tame/less exaggerated, try these from The Outnet or these from Gap. A few of my favorites…

THESE JULIET DUNNS ARE SO FUN (01. — ALSO COME IN WHITE)

THESE MIGHT BE THE CUTEST SHORTS I’VE EVER SEEN (02.)

THESE ZIMMERMANNS ARE A WORK OF ART (03. — MORE SIZES HERE; YOU CAN GET THE VIBE FOR LESS WITH THESE)

THESE LAVENDER CUT-OFFS ARE FUN (05.) — IMAGINE WITH A PRETTY FLORAL BLOUSE TUCKED IN

THESE TAILORED BLACK SHORTS WOULD LOOK ELEGANT PAIRED WITH A WHITE TEE OR TANK

THESE, IN THE WHITE, KHAKI, OR NAVY WOULD BE CHIC PAIRED WITH A LIGHT SWEATER OR BUTTON-DOWN

FUN LIBERTY FLORALS UNDER $100 THAT REMIND ME OF THESE MORE-EXPENSIVE ZIMMERMANNS

THESE SCREAM SEASIDE VACATION

The patterned/statement shorts would pair perfectly with this ruffle-sleeve top or one of these seamless tanks (both $30 and under), or a cashmere tee (on sale!) as we transition to warm weather. And loads of gorgeous statements tops for spring at all pricepoints here.

P.S. Transitional coats as we head through the final stages of this cool spring.

P.P.S. My favorite finds so far this spring, in one place.

P.P.P.S. My reunion with my parents after over a year apart took me by surprise.

  1. I love your picks for shorts, especially those RedValentino ric-rac ones … wowza! It kills me how I spent years — years! — avoiding shorts because I thought they were unflattering. I’ve discovered that the trick is sizing up a size in most shorts for a bit of extra give … to me, nothing is worse than a pair of too-tight shorts! I love AGOLDE for denim shorts and also love this slightly oversized pair from Uniqlo’s collab with J.W. Anderson: https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/women-linen-blend-tucked-shorts-jw-anderson-438109.html

    (I kind of hate how they’re styled on the site but I’m planning on styling mine with a fitted tank come summer!)

    1. MK – so spiriting to have you say this as I have also been avoiding shorts for my entire life basically. I SO rarely wear them. This year I’m branching out. They are so practical with little ones around!
