Where I live, it’s shorts season at least 75% of the year. Believe it or not before moving to Southern California I hardly ever wore shorts. Now I pretty much live in them. A while back I shared my favorite shorts styles for athletic girls like myself but there is one trend in particular I’ve been crushing on lately. I am absolutely obsessed with the “paperbag” or tie waist shorts and pants trend right now.
Since I am short waisted and don’t have much of a waist to begin with, finding the right styles is a little difficult. I found this pair from Abercrombie and fell in love. They’re currently on sale for just under $22 and I have them in 2 colors. I am normally a 25 or 26 at Abercrombie, sometimes a 27 and ordered these in a size small. You can see the other pair I have here (clearly I have an obsession, ha!).
This style is easy to dress up with a cami and wedges or dress down with a tee and sandals. You guys know I’m all about comfy, versatile pieces and these definitely fit the bill. I am so in love with the adorable tie waist detail.
Because my tie waist shorts obsession runs deep, I also recently bought this pair (in olive) and this pair. They run true to size and will stretch throughout the day so stick to your normal size. They also can be dressed up or down and are a modest yet flattering length.
