ELIZABETH AND JAMES Floral Shorts (EDIT: & Blouse, too!)

Let’s get leggy! Boy shorts, hot pants, tap pants, floral shorts… there are going to be a lot of shorts this season!
Elizabeth and James' take on this huge trend is to combine it with pretty 80s les petite fleurs peint in heavenly texture.
This Olsen twins design features a wide waistband with belt loops, which is ruched and elasticised at back. They are softly pleated at the hips with wide legs curved gym-shorts style at the sides. The floral is a tiny watercolour in pink, green and celadon on a slate-blue background.
Pair with black tank top or chambray shirt for the perfect Summer "I just threw this on" look!

EDIT (25 Apr): Matching blouse now available, too!

Rather than being just another celebrity fueled label, Elizabeth and James is a brand that we find ourselves bookmarking and adding to our “fave” list a lot. Designed by who other than… Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the Elizabeth and James collection have surprisingly and effectively pleased some of the industry’s harshest naysayers with its wearable yet undeniably trendy style.

If ever there was a moment to renew that gym membership, it's now: floral shorts are the new leggings, and we're loving the way they're worn and styled on these models and celebs.
