Printed Shorts: Class

These beautiful scarf print canvas shorts look laid-back for class when paired with a no-frills crew neck t-shirt. The color of the tee plays nicely off the green in the print, but keep everything else neutral in order to let the print do the talkin'. Metallic d'orsay flats add a little shine, while a neutral brown tote is the perfect size to carry all of your belongings.

Dazzling, dainty accessories contribute a few more hints of sparkle without overdoing it. Deep red fingernails add a bold touch to this polished yet cool daytime look. Keep the rest of your beauty routine simple with a red-hued tinted lip balm.

Printed Shorts: Night Out

These printed shorts look fab for a night out when paired with a sheer, flowy white tank top. A solid-colored top and neutral sandals with a low wedge ensure that the scarf print shorts are the star of this look.

Have some fun with your accessories by adding a red crossbody bag to play off the red in the print, as well as a big sparkly statement necklace. The perfect beauty statement to finish this ensemble off? A bold, long-lasting red lip. This look is simple, breezy, and chic for a balmy summer night spent out on the town.
