When the temperatures rise and the same old denim shorts aren’t doing it for you, consider a fun girlie retro look: the bloomers. Fashioned for grown ups in a leaner look (versus a baggy, tiered ruffle diaper look), the elasticized leg opening shields your skivvies from the elements while allowing you to show optimum leg. Denim bloomer shorts are hard to find at the moment (though there is a cute pair by House of Cassette online at 80s Purple), but you can count on Etsy to bring you vintage styles just when you need them!
Both denim bloomer shorts are upcycled denim, so you can feel good about the purchase (plus they’re only $25 to $27 each!). We think a loose, cap sleeve blouse or frilly white tank top and wedge espadrilles would look swimmingly with these denim shorts. To check out these bloomers, go to Etsy to shop!
