How to Wear It
An alternative to the full mini, these shorts are meant for going places where flat khakis or hot pants never go, like a cocktail party or a dinner date. The soft pleating rejects voluminous peasant tops for tailored or belted jackets and tucked-in shirts. Step out in smart open sandals or heels. After all, you’re going places.
