Shorts shopping often requires some effort up front. Whether that looks like experimenting with different styles or bringing a pair you love to the tailor to achieve the perfect length and fit, it is well worth it when it comes time to put together casual, but polished, summer looks. While I love the classic staples, like denim and crisp white shorts, I also gravitate toward styles that showcase a sophisticated print, like this floral pair, this paisley pair, and this toile pair.

When I’m looking for a change of pace from my usual dresses or skirts, I turned to tailored shorts like these from Zimmermann. The floral embroidery makes any outfit special, without sacrificing ease or comfort.
