Summertime is the perfect opportunity to pair fun colors and patterns together.  A striped shirt and floral shorts are the best way to do that.

A Summertime Floral Shorts Outfit

While walking in Paris, I happened to notice a bit of a trend.  Florals.  Floral pants and floral shorts outfits in Paris were something of an exciting discovery for me.  Considering I love florals and Paris is known for their minimalist fashion, I was thrilled.

Around Paris, floral shorts stand out as being something that is a universal style.  And floral shorts look great on so many women.  One way to pair a floral shorts outfit is with a striped top.   Or something more minimal (very Parisian) such as a white button down.  A great way to style this floral shorts outfit, or a similar floral style that you love, is to tuck in the top, throw on a belt, and add some great statement jewelry.  Adding a great cuff or necklace (in my case, both because I love statement jewelry with any outfit) immediately elevates your style.

My New Balance shoes are one of my favorite styles of shoes right now.  I paired my floral shorts outfit with these tennies because this outfit is a great option for a weekend out and about.  And the best way to look cute, stylish, and to stay comfortable at the same time is with a great pair of shoes.  I highly recommend a pair of New Balance shoes if you are looking for a cute pair of tennies but don’t want to wear your running shoes.  I also recommend Converse or Adidas (which are also huuuuuge in Paris right now!)

If you’re trying to put together an floral shorts outfit and love print mixing but aren’t quite sure how to master the look, one simple tip is to make sure you have one harmonious color working together in the pieces you’re using.  The blue of the striped top works with the blue in the flowers of the floral shorts.  I dedicated an entire post to tips for print mixing here if you wanted to read more about how to mix prints.  Here are 3 more fun ideas for pairing a floral shorts outfit with just a few simple pieces.
