Hey, ladies. It’s Anna here from Fash Boulevard again. For the summer, my husband and I have been staying at the beach where, in an effort to survive the heat and humidity, I have collected quite the arsenal of shorts. Sure, denim cut-offs are a wardrobe must. But when it comes to dressing comfortably and looking fabulous during sun-soaked afternoons, I’ve found solace in shorts that pack a (printed) punch Printed summer shorts exude this season’s breezy vibe in exactly the right ways. And they have the power to make a white tank look like the most stylish thing in your closet.
Whether your shorts are illustrated with a tropical-print, abstract watercolors, or a floral motif, this summer necessity is a no-brainer. Just be sure to balance them out with a simplistic top so that they can make a statement all on their own.
