New spring trend: lacy shorts

The first day of spring usually brings with it a nice change of weather and it gives people fresh sense of renewal.

An obvious look for spring is floral and bright prints, but there’s another trend I’ve found while doing mall research.

The trend is lacy cut-off shorts.

This trend can be found in affordable stores like Forever 21 (pictured above) and dELiA*s, but also in more expensive brands like Lord & Taylor, Rag & Bone and Dsquared.

There’s also plenty of websites online that show you how to make them yourself!

In my research I’ve discovered these blog posts with instructions: Craft Classy, By Wilma and Petite-Fashionista.

While I was at the mall I decided to put together a look for you at Forever 21.

Here it is:


Bright pink floral top – $17.80

Denim shorts with lace – $19.80
