I wore these shorts in one of my first outfit posts last year. I love the stripes, and because I have so much red in my closet, I can pair them with so many things. I did some pattern mixing in last year’s post, but if doing that seems a bit daunting, you can try mixing a patterned item with something that has graphic print with similar colors, like a cute printed t-shirt. Even a t-shirt with a print rather than a solid t-shirt adds some visual interest to an outfit. Don’t get me wrong: solid t-shirts have their place in every person’s wardrobe, but it’s nice to go with something with a little whimsy sometimes.
