I mentioned a few weeks back in my Summer Shopping Guide that short sets are on my radar. There’s something so cute about coordinated pieces! So, when I found this tribal print look on Amazon for under $20 I had to order online. My package arrived in two days and just in time for Essence Fest!
I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical about ordering clothing on Amazon, just because I wasn’t sure how sizing might work. I’m 5’2 and my weight fluctuates between 115 and 120 lbs so I normally wear a 2 or 4 in most brands. After reviewing client feedback and sizing charts, I took a risk by going with a small. It fits nicely and can be worn multiple ways by styling the crop top and shorts with other garments. The fabric is lightweight and breathable, perfect for summer.
When it comes to shorts, I generally go for a 2.5 – 4-inch inseam depending on the cut. These particular shorts fit high waisted on me but might sit right below the waist on a taller gal. Stylist Tip – wear high waisted undies with items that span above your natural waist line. This helps hold everything in and avoids visible panty lines. I styled this look with a pair of gold sandals and a yellow wristlet for a day of exploring in the French Quarter. I felt fabulous and got so many compliments!
Don’t like shorts but love pants?! Try this 2 piece pant set for $15, what a deal! This will be one of my last summer purchases before I gear up for Pre-Fall! Tell me about your favorite summer looks below. I can’t wait to hear from you!
