As the temperatures climb in New York, I've begun to realize just how few warm-weather appropriate things I own. I have exactly one pair of shorts: denim cutoffs I bought at the Gap approximately four years ago.
While denim shorts definitely have a place in my wardrobe, they aren't appropriate for every occasion -- work, say, or a night out. Thus I've begin to seek out a pair in a summery print, and this number by Asos definitely fits the bill. I like that the shorts are a bit high-waisted and pleated, which makes them formal enough for the office when paired with a button-down shirt. With a black tank and heels, they're great for rooftop cocktails.
And with a plain white tee, they're ready for a visit to your grandma in Florida -- in the best way possible, of course. Shuffleboard, anyone?
Asos shorts in tropical print, $57.17, available at ASOS.
