I have been looking for a perfect pair of short linen shorts for hours (I am not exaggerating) this week. I only have linen trousers and long shorts so, considering how warm it is these days, having short ones seemed like a good idea. So, to save you time, I’ve decided to share the best two finds, in my opinion. One is a colourful option, and the other – nude and black.
Unfortunately, my favourite Filippa K did not have anything but they do have 40%-50% sale at the moment.
So, the shorts in question are:
J Crew Seaside short in linen blend, £55 here
These look so good. And come in a lot of fun shades: Bronzed Ochre (shown and my personal favourite option), Brilliant Sunset (orange), Neon Flamingo (pink), Loden Green (khaki), Sea Spray (baby blue), Navy (the other option I would love) and Monaco Blue (bright blue).
I really wish they had a red pair. But I do have a pair of linen red (long) shorts already. I also have an old pair of yellow shorts but it’s time to replace them.
Arket Linen Shorts, £35 from here
These also look and sound great, and I am loving the black pair. However, there are also Light Beige and Beige options.
When it comes to clothes shopping, I don’t get anything spontaneously, and always plan ahead. I also make sure that what I am going to buy will match other clothes and will fit my personal style. A great tool which helps me personally is Pinterest. I have a private board where I save the things which I am missing in my wardrobe, and am getting them one by one.
