What it is: Paisley shorts, H&M, $30
How to wear it: Sweet as can be, these pretty paisley shorts from H&M are one of my top picks for spring/summer. With a little stretch and a lot of character, these shorts are sure to get you noticed. Pair them with a tucked-in white button-down, a pair of orange loafers and a strand (or two) of pearls for lunch with the ladies. For a later event, pair them with pink pointy pumps, a silky tank and a stack of gold bangles. If the weather is still cool in your parts, wear them with tights, for a cozy-chic outfit.
Why I love it: This crazy warm weather has me craving shorts and I know that a cute pair like this will be sold out come summer. So, stock up now. How can you not love the super-chic juxtaposition of a classic print with poppy colours! I am wearing them (yes, in Toronto it has been warm enough for shorts) with a fitted orange sweater, a pair of ballet flats and a fake tan.
