The lace shorts trend first popped up last spring but has stuck around (except now you probably want to add some tights under your shorts because it has been so chilly lately). I picked up a pair of lace shorts last summer and had every intention of wearing them – but when I put them on, my boyfriend told me it looked like I was wearing underwear instead of pants. I wasn’t about the leave the house after that feedback.
I still wonder, though – was their “underwear-like quality” the fault of the shorts themselves, or was it just the way I styled them?
Lace shorts outfits:
I was first inspired to try this trend after seeing Khatu from I am Khatu wearing lace shorts (above). I’m seriously obsessed with her style and of course – she looks perfectly classy in everything… So they don’t look like underwear on her at all.
After Madwell reminded me this isn’t just a summer trend with this look yesterday, I scoured Pinterest for more inspiration on how to wear this style. Here are some images Pinterest helped me come up with.
I tried to choose photos where you could see most or the entire outfit so you could really judge for yourself. Let me know what you think! Am I crazy for wanting to try this style again?
