Summer Trend: Embroidered Shorts

Sew pretty!

I’ve been spotting embroidered shorts everywhere lately, and I have to say, I’m obsessed. Embroidery details are something that are totally seasonless, but nevertheless, I think I always associate it most with summertime(due in no small part to an embroidered beach cover up I’ve taken on multiple fun-filled trips to Mexico!). I’m really loving all the floral embroidery patterns on shorts this season — from long, drapey linen shorts, to cropped short shorts too. The look is interesting and unique, and paired with a simple solid top, still classic and pulled together. I can dig it!

Have you brought home a pair of embroidered shorts with you yet this summer? Which one of the above is your fave?

French Connection ‘San Fran Stitch’ Shorts  |  Tory Burch ‘Veronique’ Shorts  |  Ann Taylor Embroidered Shorts  |  J.Crew Factory Embroidered Shorts  |  Isabel Marant Etoile ‘Makya’ Shorts  |  Topshop ‘Trailing Flowers’ Shorts

    Love all these embroidered shorts, I have spotted a few pairs around but you have rounded up such a great selection! I have not bought a pair yet but I just grabbed the embroidered gauze skirt from J.Crew so very similar to their short option. But now I think I need to look into that fabulous orange pair from Topshop!
    Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July Weekend!
