Just as dark neutrals and plaid reign supreme during the fall and winter months, the summer season is all about bold and bright prints, baby. While we adore a printed bodycon dress as much as the next gal, we’re definitely feeling the appeal of shorts when it’s a dose of summer fun we’re after. From the scorchin’ summer day party to breezy evening barbeques, there are plenty of reasons to covet a fabulous pair of printed shorts this season. Check out our favorite pairs below to give you a leg up on looking the epitome of perfection.


A pair of printed shorts is one of the most versatile pieces you can own during the summer time. From wild nights out on the town to long days at the beach, the perfect pair of shorts will transition seamlessly from day to night. This pair will look as fabulous with a neutral crop top as it will with a denim shirt. Throw a pair of neutral heels, wedges or bejeweled sandals into the mix to top things off.


Oh, you fancy, huh? A pair of printed silk shorts can be used for a number of dressy ensembles. We love this pair with strappy sandals or chunky platforms and a bustier top thrown in for good measure. A head of waves, a smoky eye and an embellished clutch is all you need to take this look to new heights of chic.



Florals are fabulous no matter how you slice it. Put an edgy spin on this summer must-have by way of print-mixing or cool contrast. When working with sweet pieces, simply incorporate a leather jacket or a pair of fierce spiked heels to up the ante on the cool factor in a cinch.
