Cost Per Wear: Pattened Shorts

black and white printed shorts 8 different ways

I have tried to hold on to the beautiful weather we have had this summer, but it seems to be cooling off. Yet again, patterned shorts were a major summer staple for me. I purchased this pair about 2 years ago for $8 when Old Navy was clearing out their summer apparel. They've made 8 appearances on the blog now and numerous times off of it. Even with a plain white tee, the pattern makes the whole look feel more cohesive and purposeful. Patterned bottoms really help to make you look put together without the time and effort. You can't go wrong with a pair in neutral colors that go with practically anything! Now they are well under $1 a wear and I am still enjoying them!

  11. It's always interesting to figure out cost per wear, right? I haven't done that in awhile, but it's a great way to get your shopping priorities straight! ;)

    Thanks for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday!

  12. You know I love and own these shorts too and I have worn mine at least 10 times. My favorite looks are with the chambray and with the bright coral blazer.
