For the past few months, just about all I see on Instagram and other social media are the high-waisted shorts with the tie belt and waist ruffles, they are everywhere and so popular right now! These shorts are the kind of shorts I would usually never buy, but I have actually come to love them a lot! They really are super cute! After seeing them so many times through fashion, I started to like them more and more.
I went on a summer shopping spree last week and saw them in just about each store I went in and knew I needed a pair, or in my case two lol. I had been looking around online for a while and finally found two pairs at the mall that I absolutely loved!
What I love the most about these shorts are that they are basically a two-in-one. They’re a bit dressy and can really dress up a basic outfit, while also being super comfortable and casual. Sometimes I just don’t even know how to describe it. It’s dressy but casual if that makes any sense lol. They also both have pockets which is a plus. When I first saw them in the store it looked like they didn’t have pockets, until I tried them on and realized. It was an awesome surprise! Definitely adds to that comfortable and casual feel of the shorts.
The black pair I purchased at H&M, and the green pair I purchased at Forever 21. Both so inexpensive, I love it! So typically I am a size XS-S or 0-2 in just about all clothing, but both of these shorts actually aren’t my size but I still fit into them great! These shorts are seriously in high demand right now so it was very hard to find my size anywhere. I am wearing a size 4 in the black pair and I actually hardly notice a difference with it being a bigger size than I usually fit into. I am wearing a size S in the green pair and still fit into them just fine. I notice some parts of the green pair being just a little too big, such as the length, where I would fit better in an XS, but not a huge dealbreaker and I still love them!
So even if they don’t have your size, try a different one! It might end up working out just like it did for me!
I absolutely love both of these colors of the high-waisted shorts. I’ve noticed the olive green is the most popular and I totally get why, it’s just a fun color you don’t see every day and it really does look super cute! While I originally only wanted one pair, I couldn’t help getting two with the amazing prices they were both set at! Forever love H&M and Forever 21, they are awesome!
