Merry Christmas, everyone! I wish I had a great story about these shorts, like maybe that they’re vintage Missoni, passed down from generation to generation, and I wear them every Christmas or something. Nope. Not the case. They’re Trina Turk, and I simply found them on sale at Nordstrom, and decided they were the coolest dressy shorts I’d ever seen, and I had to have them. The waistband and front pocket lining is a faux-leather embossed chevron print, too. Such a gorgeous detail! And they’re still a pretty great Missoni knock-off, don’t you think?
I paired them with the Jimmy Choo OTK ‘Gypsy’ boots (last seen here), but I’m already dreaming of pairing them with my Kiki ballet flats from J.Crew for a more conservative work look, and then also with my super rad Acne Pistol ankle boots, for an edgier look. Both with and without black tights…
The shorts are on sale now… try them out with your wardrobe, you won’t be sorry!
