Right in the Bag

Monarchy Collection by Eric Kim (2010)

Paper bag shorts have been around for quite some time, but I've only felt like wearing them recently. They're incredibly comfy and effortlessly chic, and I can easily dress them up or down! It's one of those perfect day-to-night bottoms that you can quickly style up by switching your bag, shoes and accessories.

This Topshop number actually looks like the Zara shorts I got my sister for her last birthday. Blue bottoms are great because they can be paired with a lot of things just like denim. (Hmm, I guess I'll be borrowing your shorts, sis!)

Earthy neutrals like gray and olive green are also very versatile. Even a sporty pair like the cargo paper bag shorts above can be taken from the mall to the club with a change of top and shoes!

Though I'm usually partial to plains, I bought this pair because the print was just too beautiful to resist. I'm always drawn to ultra feminine pieces! Plus, I love how the hues in the print includes different neutrals, plus some touches of pink and blue.

Olivia Palermo and Leighton Meester both look chic in their paper bag bottoms. Olivia sports it with a laid-back ensemble of a striped tee, casual blazer and ballet flats, while Leighton wears hers with a sexy white button-down and stilettos.

Items of clothing for easy dressing are always welcome in my wardrobe!
