Eight Ways to Wear Printed Shorts

August 10, 2016·

Printed shorts.

Not going to lie, much like printed pants or printed leggings, there was a long time where I was hesitant to wear printed shorts because I honestly wasn’t sure how to style them. I realize this is strange and I realize they might not be that difficult to style, but I was weary of them for far too long. And then, unsurprisingly, I’ve heard from other people that they just don’t know how to style printed shorts either!

BUT, printed shorts are now actually my FAVORITE and I love how fun they are and how they make an outfit that much more exciting. So, since I always find it helpful to see how other people style a particular type of clothing, I thought it might be helpful to round up some of the ways I have worn printed shorts over the years.

And yes, I said years because a few of these outfits are from two and a half years ago! So, don’t totally judge. 🙂
