On Trend: Short Story


Break out the sugar wax, shorts season is upon us. This year, we are seeing less cut off "jorts" and more flirty pairs in soft, draping fabrics. Think more city-chic; less Daisy Duke. 

When the heat rises, the last thing you want to think about is what to wear. To make it easier, we crafted four warm weather looks that you'll want to try this summer. Get these looks with pieces found at Estilo, or incorporate similar pieces from your own wardrobe to make it your own.  

The Clash 

The secret to mixing patterns is simple: keep it in the same color family. Here we work with neutrals. This cream pinstriped Armanda Top from Joie doesn't overpower the tribal-inspired Elowen Short from Soft Joie. Rather, they work together to create a cohesive look. Stick with the same color family for the accessories, as well. We went with the Melissa Puzzle Shoe, a Zadig & Voltaire XS Boxy Cobra Bag, and trendy jewelry from Jen Hansen. Specifically, we love her Disc Choker and Vine Climber earrings.

The Denim-on-Denim

Elevate your summer denim looks with a pair of menswear-inspired pinstriped chambray shorts from like the Joie Merci shorts in washed indigo. We love the flirty-peplum look the Ryder Miller top adds. Finally, this outfit is festival-ready with a sun-shielding KIN/K Poppy Felt Hat, the comfortable-but-cute KAANAS Anuket Sandal, and handmade jewelry from Monica Ruiz of Pharoah Jewelry. Get a little creative and wrap a De Palma skinny belt around your neck as a bohemian-inspired choker.

The Athleisure 

The athleisure trend isn't going anywhere, and we are TOTALLY okay with that. After all, who doesn't want to spend the day in these gym-inspired art dept Harper Shorts? Come for the elastic waistband, stay for the über-luxe silk crepe fabric. All you have to do from here is throw on your favorite graphic tee (we love the positive messages from the good hYOUman line) and a lightweight jacket like the Paneled Bomber by Lanston Brooks. Complete the look with KAANAS slip-on sneakers and a handmade camouflage bucket bag from Jessy Made.

The Co-ord

Channel your inner Selena with a coordinating 2-piece look like this one from Soft Joie. The Sparkle C top and Beatra Shorts look just as cute on their own, but make something very special when paired together. Add lift with feminine "flatform" sandals like the KAANAS Seshat Sandal in the season's most popular color, blush. Choose a simple bag that lets the outfit speak, like the Kim White Triangle Front-Pocket Bag. Finally, keep the bohemian vibes going with statement jewelry like the Avantgarde Pardes Cuff, Eros Gold-on-Gold Hoops, and a layered chain choker from Soko.
