J.Crew's silk taffeta shorts

Not for the faint of heart, J.Crew's silk taffeta shorts combine the casual shape of their classic chino shorts with a luxurious, vividly colored fabric. For a preppy daytime look, pair the shorts with a T-shirt, tissue cashmere argyle cardigan and muted flats. To take the shorts for a night on the town, dress it up with a shrunken blazer, statement jewelry and flashy heels. In rich aqua and bright papaya, these shorts move easily from day to night. But beware: the shiny fabric might accentuate the least favorite parts of your lower body (hips, thighs & butt), so make sure you wear them fitted, but not tight.
