Easy breezy shorts for summer. I love the idea of shorts but they must hit the sweet spot length. The hunt is over with Vince’s pleat front cotton shorts. They look crisp yet read casual and hit mid thigh. You can choose from three neutral tones. Keep your look relaxed during the day by pairing these with your favorite tee. For an evening look, add a loose-fitting blazer along with some fun earrings. A woven pair of sandals or sneakers to complete the look. (I am anxiously awaiting for these shorts to hit sale!)
