Shopping Guide: Shorts

Where to Buy: I would recommend checking discount stores first before hitting the mall. If you have a lot of time, stores like TJMaxx, Marshalls, and Ross gives you numerous options without breaking your bank. If you like shopping at the mall, definitely check out Old Navy and Gap. If you’re a teenager or in your 20s, check out stores like PacSun, American Eagle, and Hollister.
Styles to Look For: Choose from styles like paper bag, neon-colored, high-waisted, cotton with floral prints, and the basic denim shorts. Any of these are great for summer especially the cotton with floral prints. You can dress them up or down depending on where and how you are going to wear them. I suggest cropped tees for high-waisted shorts or you can tuck a semi-fitted top on a paper bag short. Anything goes with a basic denim shorts; those are my favorite because they are versatile — just make sure they are not too short.
Price Range: I think this depends on you. I, sometimes, score a pair of shorts for less than $10. I would say spend less than $50, and I’ll say the average price of a pair of shorts would be around $30. If you think you will use it for a couple of summers, go ahead and splurge, otherwise, you can always buy another pair next year!

Make sure you know what you like: do you like short shorts or are you a little more conservative? Do you like bright colors or are you going to stay with a neutral color? Also, check the materials used. Are you really going to pay $50 for a pair of shorts that’s made of cheap polyester? No, I don’t think so. I have a few suggestions below where you can see many pairs of shorts in different styles and colors.

So there you have it! I will post more shopping guide soon! So what do you think? Are you going to check out discount stores? Do you shop at discount stores? Where do you get your shorts? Let me know on the comments below! 🙂

    I think the best idea is go to a thrift store, and look for some highwaisted or normal length jeans. Then, when you get home you can cut them yourself. This allows you to let your creative juices flow. Plus, when someone asks were did your shorts, you will be like: Oh I made them myself 😀
