LACE SHORTS DETAILS
BANANA REPUBLIC TOP (SIMILAR) // ELLA MOSS SHORTS
LC LAUREN CONRAD SHOES // CHANEL BAG
I seriously love shorts this summer, especially black shorts. I’ve bought two pairs of black shorts, including this lace pair from Ella Moss and I’ve been seriously eyeing some black denim shorts from Planet Blue as well. My favorite items in my closet are the ones that are most versatile and that’s why these lace shorts have been such a favorite.
When it comes to shopping for lace shorts my biggest advice is this – choose a style that fits loosely, they should not fit snug AT ALL. Also, make sure that they are lined. Lined lace shorts make all the difference when it comes to being able to wear them for day and night. An unlined pair of lace shorts is strictly for the beach. If you’re shopping online, look for this information in the item details. If you’re unsure – I know you can’t go wrong with these Ella Moss shorts.
For daytime, I’ll wear them with a grey tee like this one or a tank with a slouchy cardigan. I recently wore it this way when I spent the day in Malibu last weekend and it was the perfect daytime beachy look. Another cute daytime look for brunch is to wear the shorts with a bright or printed (or brightly printed) top.
To dress up the lace shorts in the evening for dinner with the girls or date night, I love pairing them with a solid silk blouse tucked in I wore in San Diego in the pictures above. Paired with my fave summer sandals, it’s perfect for dinner and drinks with the girls. Oh, and don’t forget the red lipstick. My go-to is YSL lipstick because it seriously does last forever.
