Salute Your Shorts

shorts trend spring summer 2013

During the warmer months, I typically  gravitate towards dresses before shorts, but sometimes it’s nice to just switch things up.  This year, I have noticed shorts are on a novel streak, falling into three categories: printed, bermuda, and leather. Now printed shorts make sense, seeing how popular printed denim has become in the past 9 months, and leather shorts are sassy and unexpected, but bermuda shorts? How did they get a ticket to ride this summer? Maybe it’s the androgyny in the air, or a nod to the 90s grunge hipsters out there, but they are out in full force, and I’m feeling them {after all, more is more, riiiight?}. Here are 6 of my favorites from each category:
