Shorts for summer...
Summer officially starts Wednesday June 20th, and ends September 20th, what is apparent down here is that it has already begun. It is a glorious day today the sun is shining and it wasn't too hot, but after 20 minutes when I realized I had forgotten my to apply sunscreen, and the sand started getting hot under my feet, I thought a mall visit was in order. A stroll through Banana Republic had me heading straight to their "summer whites" section, with embroidered eyelet tops and slightly crushed linen pants, I forgot all about the heat. You should see their Trina Turk Collection, I have decided I need a little white denim jacket now.
Now that I'm home, I headed over to Net-a-Porter to see what they had in shorts. I have one pair of shorts, and need some inspiration. The trend on Net-a-Porter seemed to be short shorts, full long shorts and high waisted shorts.
Sonia Rykiel - Full short
These look more like a skirt than a short but I like the idea, and how comfortable would these be. I also like the wide fabric belt.
Versus - Sweatsuit drawstring waist
So how comfortable are sweat pants? These shorts have the same gathered waistband with a drawstring detail, but they are made in silk crepe de chine, nice and light for summer.
YSL - High waisted
Mid length short, in a very classic style, and I liked them so much I posted two color ways.
Chalayan - High waisted
These would be perfect under a boyfriend jacket, very simple and streamlined.
Since they are all made of silk crepe de chine, they aren't really low maintenance. You would probably have to dry clean to keep the colors fresh. Alternatively you could wash your silks first for a "washed silk" effect and have a sensuous wardrobe for summer.
Oh and happy Father's day!!
