Four Ways to Wear: Striped Shorts

Last year my striped shorts from Loft ended up being pretty much my favorite thing. Luckily this year Loft is back with a bunch of new cute options, and I'm loving these. I've got a college with a bunch of cute options down below for you. My shorts can be so easily dressed up or down, I thought I'd try to give you some inspiration today.

One way I wore my shorts was with a denim jacket, my go-to layering piece. I'm also a big fan of wearing my nude wedges with shorts to elongate my legs, and wedges help keep it casual.

I also tried a little pattern mixing and layered with my white denim jacket. The simple blue and white combo keeps this outfit crisp and chic.

Here I tried pattern mixing again and added a casual cotton blazer on top. So many colors go with blue, but I love this bright coral color here.

Lastly I mixed textures with this lace top and added the mint cardigan and pink necklace for a fun pop of color.

  1. Such cute shorts! You style them so well! I love the pattern mixes you have going on.

  3. I really like the stripes paired with polka dots.

  4. I really liked this post, Ginny!! My favorite styles are with the blue jean jacket and the green cardi. I haven't invested in a striped pair of shorts yet, just because I don't want to look bigger in my bum area! But I may change my mind.

  5. I love all four of these looks (seriously, having major outfit envy right now)! These shorts are right up my alley. I love stripes and I love white and navy blue. I also love that these stripes are blurred, it's unexpected and adds more visual interest!

  6. These are all beautiful, but I especially love the last 2. The mix of polka dots and stripes is great in #3, and the bright pink necklace is a perfect touch in #4!

  7. Hard to say which look I prefer as they're all stunning on you. Love the coral blazer outfit and the one with the mint cardi.

  8. All are so cute! I'm sure you will get a ton more use out of them this year :)

  9. I want/need some b+w striped shorts. Yours are so stylish each way but the 2nd and 3rd outfits are my top picks! Looking forward to seeing your pregnancy style, Ginny. Huge congrats on baby number two!
