A Short’s Story

Moving past traditional denim into prints, pleats and high waists, shorts have the starring role in this spring’s story. The stunning Mila Kunis lets us know that your short story doesn’t have to be complicated; it can be as simple as a white tee and rolled denim. Or you can go for a more dramatic plotline with bold prints. The setting can be the beach or the office, Sunday morning brunch or Saturday night out with the girls. Supporting characters include (but aren’t limited to) sky high wedges, flip flops, your bikini, a cropped sweatshirt, and a trendy blazer. As long as your shorts have the starring role, you’re in for a happy ending!
