Sweet’n’Raw’s Spring Shopping Guide: SHORTS

April’s here and it seems time is flying by so fast, my sweet readers! That’s why I need to move my butt and be done with this guide before Summer kicks Spring out. Today I’m gonna be giving you shorts! I have been completely in love with this garment for a few seasons now, up to the point that my beloved skirts have officially been replaced. Whether you find them with sequins, scarf print, crocheted or floral, possibilities are endless. Sweet’n’Raw has prepared a list of the ones that should be inside your closet for the season.

You can take them to the beach, you can wear them with a blazer, a blouse and some heels for a dressier look. You can even pair them up with a tank top or a denim shirt and some sneakers for a more laid-back one. You won’t regret this purchase, you will wear this babies out this Spring!

  • H&M
  • Valentino

D&G had us drooling with their scarf-inspired collection for Spring, now it’s time for us to take that trend and make it ours. From high-end designers to affordable retailers like Zara or TOPSHOP, a pair of colorful, scarf, smart shorts are definitely the way to go.

Everywhere you look, you’ll find pastels this season. Powdery and sugary shorts are a must in your closet. Lilac cut-offs for a casual Saturday, tailored, pale pink ones for a brunch or high-waisted mint hotpants for a night out, you choose! Just run out the door and get your pair right away!

I have previously professed my love for all things shiny and glittery, and when they come in the form of short shorts, it’s love at first sight. I love wearing sequins with day outfits, it’s much more fun and much more daring. Try it out, wear this shorts with a light, graphic jumper and some sneakers, with a tank top and some sandals, even if you go to the beach, match a solid, crisp white bikini top with a silver sequined denim pair.

I’m a sucker for leopard and so are you, I hope. Animal prints are a fun way to spice up your outfits and to get a serious head-turning effect. I have always loved to mix python print with soft and creamy colors, whereas leopard can be put together with neons, neutrals or brights! Dare to make a wild statement this Spring with a pair of leopard or snakeskin beauties.

  • Michael Kors
  • Unknown
  • Isabel Marant
  • TOPSHOP

Spring loves flowers and flowers love Spring! And guess what? We love flowers! If you haven’t bought your pair of floral shorts, I recommend you buy a pair of pleated and high-waisted shorts and some printed denim ones. Another advice: mash them up with other prints and textures!

  • TOPSHOP
  • D&G
  • River Island
  • Current/Elliot

Well, if you dream about going out in your pajamas, now’s the time! With a pair of silk bloomers, printed or solid, you can even go clubbing in your “pajamas”. Look for the style, shape and color that most flatters your figure and skin. I like them with drawstrings and graphic prints, how about you?

  • Marni for H&M
  • Erdem
  • TOPSHOP
  • THU THU

Start making your list, so you can cross out those you already have. Happy shopping!

Sweet kisses…
