When you need a break from denim shorts, the paperbag waist shorts trend is your best friend. I love this style of short so much and Express has an amazing pair for only $30!
Paperbag shorts are so classy while lending themselves to both dressy and casual looks, which is why I like them so much. We’re all about versatility here! Plus, they’re insanely flattering. The high waist is great, but the way they cinch in at the waist and are tied off with a belt allows you to wear them with form-fitting, tucked in tops and bodysuits while looking svelte and put together. Even better is that this pair from Express are machine washable! I paired them with my go-to, a black puff sleeve t-shirt and fun strappy sandals for a sophisticated summertime look.
This entire look is under $100—you can get all three pieces for $75, but with how classy this outfit is, no one would ever guess that! I can’t wait to wear this for a summer date night with Will, exploring our new city.
