Shorts season is quickly approaching, and judging by the amount of unavailable treadmills at my gym, everyone is well aware. I wouldn’t say I’m an enormous fan of the style in general, but when executed in bright colors with noteworthy details, it’s a path even I’m willing to cross. I scoured a few of my favorite sites in search of some shorts that met my criteria and came up with these three options. The Tory Burch Rini shorts, available at RevolveClothing.com, are a playful take on the nautical theme with a rope belt and navy stripes. J.Crew’s bright madras patchwork shorts incorporate one of my favorite patterns and with buttons placed strategically around the front, they’d be perfect for a summer barbecue. Lastly, I chose Marc by Marc Jacobs’ solid cotton pique shorts, which I uncovered at ShopBop.com, that have incredible detailing with a lace-up tie at back and faille trim throughout. For the time being, I’ll just have to drool over these fun styles until all of my hard work on the treadmill starts to show.
