Chino Shorts...Oh the Possibilities!

I don't know about you but so often I find myself saying that I don't have anything to wear. I often forget to mix and match what I already have and instead I settle on wearing the same outfit over and over. Well with the warm weather lately, I wanted to do a few outfits based around J.Crew's 3" Chino Shorts, specifically their navy pair.

I need more white shirts! They are such a fantastic staple piece as they go with anything! Crew-necks, Scoop-necks, V-Necks...love! Pair with a statement necklace to pull the look together and you're good to go!

I don't usually wear sweatshirts unless I'm just going to a study-sesh at the library or if I'm lounging in my room. However if you're going to the library, there's no need not to look cute! Pair the chino shorts with a comfy sweatshirt, a preppy headband, and those oh-so-smart looking glasses.

Want the typical preppy look? Find a slim-fit oxford that isn't too long. You want to be able to either tuck them into the shorts or have the length be short enough where you can still see a good amount of the shorts. Don't forget to bring the Sperrys, headband, and pearls into the mix as well!
Many stores have been stuck into selling a lot of earth tones: greys, greens, and browns. Now although these colors can be beautiful, sometimes you just need a little color to lighten the mood! What better to lighten that mood than something bright pink and for the brave...a sparkle belt!

How do you wear your chino shorts?
