You Said: Maybe to Patterned Shorts

April 20th, 2009


sunset-patchwork-madras-bermuda-short_041909We asked: Would you wear Patterned Shorts?

You said:  Maybe to Patterned Shorts, with an even 50% to 50% vote.

Style tip? Shorts come in all kinds of wonderful patterns - from simple stripes and dots to beautiful florals.  One of our all-time favorites are the patchwork styles of Madras shorts.  These brightly colored shorts are the perfect warm-weather item.  Pair them with solid colored tops; for a pulled together look, try wearing a top in a color pulled from the shorts. Works just as well for guys as it does for women.

Next question: Oversized handbags hold all of your stuff - but they can be a bit unwieldly to handle.  But what do you think?  Would you tote an Oversized Handbag?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I’m in the “no” camp for the shorts, but the “enthusiastic yes” camp for oversized handbags! Mine are always gigantic, and I couldn’t function without them.

    Not really where I want to draw attention… I’m afraid patterned shorts would make my biggest part look bigger.
    They’re cute but not for me.

    Oooh–love oversized handbags! Not too convenient, but look so nice.

    Thanks for weighing in! It’s more or less what we expected – patterned shorts are rather difficult to wear – but we appreciate the explanations :)

    my rule of them, the longer the shorts-the more solid color/less flamboyant the pattern. i’m not in the yes or no category (but a definite NO for those patterned long shorts you put up) and more of a “it depends.”
