During this week's Look for Less, we get to take a look at one of my favorite summer pieces, the patterned short. Stripes have been EVERYWHERE for the last few seasons. They are an easy classic. And patterned shorts in general have been a hit this spring and will continue to be this summer. Combine the two and you have a double dose of fab.
Stella McCartney showed her stripes mixed with tropical florals. You can riff off of her fashion forward take or you can easily wear your stipes with a solid tee and cute sandals. Voila, an easy summer look! But how much are you willing to pay for the new classic?
Stella's shorts are no doubt fabulous but they'll run you at least $400. (They recently went on sale at Net-A-Porter but they'll still cost you.) Yikes. Luckily, BB Dakota has produced a worthy, more economical alternative.
If you can afford the upscale version, then by all means enjoy those beautiful culottes! But for those of us on a budget, these less expensive shorts are a great option!
