There were a few years that I didn’t like wearing shorts, even in the summer when it was so hot. I probably didn’t find any I thought were flattering and didn’t feel comfortable in them. But, shorts are back in a big way and there are a few styles I especially like because they are super easy to wear and much more fun than my typical cutoff jean shorts or the solid cotton variety. Our weather is already hot enough for shorts, so I’m wearing them now. Today, I’m talking about my new love affair with patterned shorts.
I was lucky enough to score this global patterned pair of shorts and Daniell Rainn top at TJ Maxx recently, but when I went back with my girlfriend to buy this outfit for her, we couldn’t find it. 🙁 Kendra Scott Rayne Stone Tassel Pendant Necklace (Green Onyx) | Stella & Dot Ring (similar) | Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet | Stella & Dot Christina Link Bracelet (love these two together)
Now that I know that I love a patterned short, I looked for similar shorts to purchase online. I found so many that I want, and at varying price points – $29.50 to $88.
- Catherine Catherine Malandrino ‘Taylor’ Shorts – probably one of my favorite, but also the most expensive.
Topshop Scarf Print Shorts I think these would make a great date night outfit with a heel.
Lucca Couture Print High Rise Shorts How fun are these?!
Lily White Full Shorts – Mint Adore these next few breezy pairs, so easy to wear and comfortable!
Volcom Print Soft Shorts – I’m definitely getting these.
ASTR Faux Leather Waist Embroidered Shorts – The faux leather waist makes me want to wear these with a tucked in shirt.
Topshop Folk Print Shorts – These are the coolest. I love the global flair.
And here are a few tops to pair with the patterned short.
- Vince Camuto Colorblock Bateau Neck Blouse (40% off)
Pleione Split Neck Blouse (regular & petite; 18 colors/patterns)
Lush Split Neck Woven Tank (in 4 colors- want them all!)

I am totally into the printed shorts right now. My post today featured patterned shorts! Macy's has a good selection, surprisingly! Plus, most come with an elastic band which is so good for the hot summers here in Texas where you don't want anything jabbing into you!
I wear a lot of solid tops, especially in the summer, so these shorts sound like a dream come true!
