Trend Watch: Summer Shorts

Ten ways to wear summer shorts.

By Eden Dawn July 24, 2012


Portland’s average temperature for July and August hovers at just around 80 degrees. This is also known as the two-month window where you can pull off wearing shorts without thick wool tights layered underneath. Thankfully, designers like Chloe, Moschino, and Etro chose to think chic and comfortable for the mini-pants, giving wearable options to the world. While a few designers chose to revive the hot pants, most opted for a more relaxed fit in a variety of sunny colors, prints, and lengths. To take the look from day to night sub out cotton for satin.

How do you know if your shorts are too short? A tip: If you’re worried any part of your bum is visible, they’re too short.
