My luck with cute shorts from Target has been pretty good. Their sizes (provided you’re shopping in the appropriate section) are pretty straight-forward, and they do a good job incorporating current trends – even some edgier stuff! – into their $30-and-under designs. There are plenty of cut-offs, but there are also plenty of bermuda shorts, twill and khaki shorts, board shorts, and cargo shorts (but cute ones). For a limited time, you can cash in on your summer stock of shorts during Target’s buy one, get one 50% off sale on all shorts!
If you ask me, though, there is one pair of shorts that sums up my aspirational summer style nicely: extremely high-waisted button-fly cut-offs. In white, if you’re brave enough.
Mossimo Highest Rise Jean Shorts, $22.99
I’m deep into a high-waisted everything phase of my life, so if the appeal of these shorts totally escapes you – that’s why. And don’t worry, they totally make these in non-period-summoning denim.
Fear not, my pale winter lamb, for there are shorts of every kind in the sale. The other styles I’m gravitating towards are the patterned shorts, longer cut-offs (they make me feel like non-racist Tom Sawyer), and and the soft, flowy, shapeless shorts that probably feel more like the absence of shorts.
Buy one, get one 50% off means that you’ll have to pay full price for something, but if it helps, pretend you’re getting two items for 75% off. Trick that brain into understand that this is a good deal. I know that it goes against our primary directive – never pay retail – but rest assured that this is an opportunity for a major fashion steal.
No code necessary, and the sale runs until Saturday, June 10 at 11:59pm. You have four days left to pick your favorites and stock up!
