Best Tailored Shorts From Old Navy
Old Navy Extra High-Waisted Taylor Linen-Blend Trouser Shorts ($26, originally $37)
These tailored shorts are undeniably chic, especially when accessorized with a belt and topped with a blouse. They're a POPSUGAR editor-favorite, too. Read our complete review of the Old Navy Extra High-Waisted Taylor Linen-Blend Trouser Shorts.
Editor Quote: "These shorts are made of a linen-rayon blend that's soft to the touch and truthfully reminiscent of a pair of pajama bottoms. I could wear these all day (and night) without needing to take them off, and that's not something I can say about most shorts I own." — Marisa Petrarca, contributing editor, Commerce
Best Striped Shorts From Old Navy
Old Navy Matching High-Waisted Striped Linen-Blend Shorts ($21, originally $30)
The sandy-colored stripes on these shorts make them a perfect neutral option. The relaxed fit still looks polished with its rolled-up leg openings and back pockets. For more, read our complete review of the Oversized High-Waisted Striped Linen-Blend Shorts in another color.
Editor Quote: "This set is perfect for linen lovers who want to disrupt the sea of creamy neutrals in favor of something that makes a statement. The pastel color is perfect for spring, but you'll get a ton of use out of it through summer, especially if you switch out the top for a crisp T-shirt or tank top." — Angela Elias, contributing editor, Commerce
