It's not too late to embrace this fun summer trend, my friends, and there are plenty of fair trade, made in the USA, and handmade options available to choose from.

  1. Brocade shorts are made by Sessun, whose designer "uses organic fibres and fair trade crops wherever possible."
  2. Black and white scenic printed shorts are handmade in the USA by Shop Chant on Etsy
  3. Blue plaid shorts are made by upcycling old fabrics, so each pair is one of a kind, by ReLuxe
  4. African print blue tailored short are fair trade by Fair + True 
I love those brocade shorts, but I would not pair them with socks and tennis shoes like they have above.  For a night out, you could go with a beautiful, sheer sequined top from Juno and Jove (on sale!), or you could tuck in a sheer collared shirt for more of a daytime look. Add a flat sandal in the same color family and you're good to go.
