Summer is the perfect time to incorporate bright colors into your outfits and colored shorts continue to be on-trend. My favorite shorts are the 3″ chino from J.Crew. They are super comfortable and I love the fit. I prefer bright colored shorts to basic khaki and to keep the outfit balanced, I style them with a neutral or contrasting color. My summer uniform has followed this model and here is what I’ve been wearing lately.

Old Navy Shorts (similar) / Henley Tank (option) / Ray Ban Aviators / Bow Sandals (option)

J Crew Chino Shorts / Polka Dot Bow Top (option) / Braided Sandal (option) / Stella & Dot Wrap Bracelet / Ray Ban Aviators
