Stripes Below

One of the great things about being in foreign countries is the easier access to international versions of magazines. I picked up July’s issue of InStyle UK while in France to read on the train, and completely fell in love with these navy blue micro-striped shorts from ASOS. Striped shorts are certainly not a new trend, but they are one that I have yet to partake in. I came home and immediately looked up the shorts (love that they’re currently on sale!), then poked around to see what other striped pretty I could find. It is officially summer, after all!

Do you have any striped shorts? Which ones above your faves? I can’t decide if I prefer a classic black and white, or something super colorful. They’re all just too good!

Psst! Almost all of these are on SALE. 
1. Marc by Marc Jacobs shorts 2. Markus Lupfer shorts 3. J. Crew shorts 4. Alloy shorts 5. Topshop shorts 6. Aubin & Willis shorts 7. Seaton shorts 8. Ralph Lauren shorts 9. Joie shorts 10. Forever 21 shorts 11. BCBG shorts 12. Rag and Bone shorts

    I saw those BCBG shorts a couple days ago and they’re even cuter in person! I just love stripes….on top or on bottom. :)

    International magazines are my FAVORITE souvenirs! I think the shorts be so much fun paired with a wide stripe top.

    I am all about #2 – I think I may have pinned them recently! And I definitely did the same thing with magazines back when I visited London & Paris – I wanted to bring them back more than any other souvenir!

    These are all great, unfortunately I don’t have the thighs for them. :D I did get a pair of striped pants from the Gap that look just like #8. Haven’t figured out how to wear them yet though.

    I love, love, love stripes in any form! I actually tried on the J Crew shorts today (#3 above) in a red and white stripe. Sadly, they weren’t in my budget, but they were beautiful.

    I have had my striped shorts for years and I love them! I always look forward to pulling them out for summer. From your choices, my fav pair is #1, the high waisted pair! So cute! xo, Jolie

    Love these! And might I add, these are the perfect length. Take note ladies — watch the length of your shorts! I’ve seen so many accidents and summer’s only begun…

    I’m a tad terrified of wearing stripes below the waist, but those Rag & Bones shorts are calling my name!
