Have you ever bought something because of a picture or post from social media? No? Are you sure? Because I have. The latest is this great pair of shorts I saw on a post from Beth at https://www.instagram.com/styleatacertainage/?hl=en
The shorts are a great pair of utility shorts from the brand WhoWhatWear at Target. First things first - here is the link to the shorts http://shopstyle.it/l/Mslh
The shorts have just the right amount of stretch, the fabric is delightful, and the colors are amazing. Within a few short minutes I shopped my closet and found some great outfits. I know there are endless possibilities but I wanted to share just a few of the options I found.
First - the basics.
I literally just tried them on with the tshirt I was wearing. The tshirt is the Studio T from JCrew Factory which I have shown many times before. I would easily pair with a black tshirt, cream tshirt, or boost it with a pop of color - my choice would be pink or red.
Now, add a cute top and some jewelry
Next, I paired them with a top from the same collection. For a warm summer day when you still want to look put together, but cool this top is perfect. The tie shoulders are great because there is also a fabric "strap" underneath so the ties are really for decoration. There is extra interest in the back of the shirt, it actually buttons up the back with a deep v. I added a resin necklace in blacks and browns to pull the look together.
How about a dressy tank?
I added a dressy tank. The top has a jewel trimmed top in the same tones as the shorts and layers of ruffles. I am showin a cork slide here. I would also dress this up with strappy sandals. I, personally, would add a layer over the tank in most cases. That's too much pale showing :)
I have the shorts here with a soft utility jacket, a cream sleeveless top, and my chunky necklace. I added the blush shoes for a different look. If I wanted to change the look again I would switch the necklace for a short multi-strand pearl necklace. If I wanted to change it yet again, I would swap the shoes for my black strappy sandals. Options!!
Options in your wardrobe are key to making it truly work for you. It's also the key to never opening your closet and saying "I have nothing to wear". There are so many different ways I can wear this single pair of shorts and that's how I will make them work in my closet. I can't wait for you to see the looks when I wear them! What's working in your closet? I'd love to hear your current favs!
