TAKE YOUR SHORTS TO BRUNCH: Our blush-hued hi-rise shorties scream weekend brunch with your besties. Go for an easy, breezy spring look by pairing your shorts to a slouchy sweater. We this pullover sweater because of the fun cross-back detail, which pretty much requires a cute bralette to show off underneath! Take a small carry-all bag with you, and finish the look with strappy metallic sandals and big sunnies, especially for when you snag a coveted patio table!
WEAR YOUR SHORTS TO A FESTIVAL: Take your shorts on an adventure at one of the many upcoming music and tech festivals. With SXSW starting this weekend, we’ve got festival fashion on our mind. Our hi-rise festival shorties are the perfect match for a long-line crop top. A wide-brim hat and booties will amp up your festival look. Pile on accessories like a neutral-band watch, beaded stacked bracelets and a long necklace will complete the spring fest feel.
BRING YOUR SHORTS TO THE BEACH: Okay, if you’re doing the beach right, you’re probably not wearing shorts for the duration of the day. But, you still need a great pair of shorts to take you from the street to the sand! White denim shorts are a great beach option because they’ll look super cool paired with your favorite Aerie swimsuit. A beach tote is a non-negotiable accessory. How else will you stow away your beach towel, sunscreen & tumbler? Take a wide-brim hat to protect your skin during the hottest part of the day, and bring a patterned shawl to cover up at night.
