Camila Mendes Just Made the Shorts From Our Childhood Vacations Cool Again
The Hawaiian flower-print short tastes like boogie-board rash, virgin piña coladas, and watching Blue Crush with your cousins for the fifth time. A simpler era, for sure, and maybe that's why we're rooting for Camila Mendes's latest outfit so hard.
On an iced coffee run in Los Feliz, LA, the Riverdale star wore a By Far Billy bag, white Adidas Falcon sneakers, a purple Adidas crop tank, a mask from Lunair Wellness, and coordinated purple Holiday the Label Happy Hawaii Pajama Shorts. Her Holiday the Label bottoms may technically be pajama shorts (they come in a set with a matching sleep shirt), but their tropical print is quintessential family-vacation, matching-with-your-sibling board shorts.
As she's wont to do, Mendes makes this slice of nostalgia look self-assured and effortlessly chic. So much so that, instead of calling our mom and asking her get our own blue-sunscreen-stained pairs out of storage for round two, we're going to adult up and get a fresh set from one of the many brands bringing boardies into 2020.
