There’s nothing like a good pair of short shorts, especially on those extra hot, humid and muggy summer days when wearing pants isn’t really an option. But more than short shorts, we’ve got an infatuation with statement shorts.
This season, there are some many options to play with. Sequins, graphic prints, fuzzy textures, and crazy, vivid, psychedelic colors are all making repeat appearances on the above-the-knee trouser.
With statement pieces, it’s important to let that particular piece be the star of your look–which is why we love pairing a good pair of statement shorts with a basic separate—like an easy tee or a crisp button up shirt– that complements our look.
For today’s Five Under Fifty, we picked out our leading statement short stars of the summer. Not only are these standout picks super affordable, but they’re wearable for both day and night, making it summer’s go-to piece.
