Adding some flair to a classic summer staple led to one of our favorite trends: the paperbag short! Everyone lives in shorts in the summertime to combat those high temperatures, so it's only fitting that they evolved to fit the current style trend. Paperbag shorts can be worn casually for a day of fun in the summer sun, or they can be worn professional for a work event or meeting!

These shorts come in many patterns & fabrics, leaving a pair for every girl, no matter your style preference! Go for a bold & summery look with some stripes, or keep it tailored & classy in some structured shorts. Love the look of denim shorts but hate the way they feel after some time in the sun? Meet your new bestie, Chambray! Chambray gives you the stylish look of denim, but has all the comfort of your favorite cotton shorts!

There's so many ways you can style this trend, but our favorite is with a bodysuit! Since these shorts tend to be a little high-waisted, we think tucking in a top (or simply wearing a bodysuit that does all the work for you!) is the best way to wear them! The tucked in look is really flattering & slimming as well!

Another thing we love about this trend is it's versatility! You can dress the shorts up for a day in the office, or keep the casual for wherever your summer takes you! I think my favorite place to wear them would be on vacation. There's just something about the tie-waist that makes me think "Paradise!" 

If you don't already have some sort of paperbag pieces in your wardrobe, now is the time to hop on it, as this trend will be sticking around through the fall & winter seasons! Paperbag shorts are just as dreamy as the upcoming paperbag pants we have coming up, so stay tuned!
