6 Paper Bag Shorts That You Need In You Wardrobe

Paper bag shorts will be the staple of your wardrobe that you never knew you needed. Not only are they totally on-trend right now but they are also the most comfortable way to wear high-waisted clothes.

If you aren’t familiar with what paper bag shorts are then let us offer you a quick explanation. Unlike other shorts which can be tight and uncomfortable, the waistline is made of excess fabric, pleated up under a belt, meaning that they are stretchy and flexible. They are also an extremely flattering shape, nipping in at the smallest part of your waist and loose at your thighs to give you an hourglass figure.

Finally, they’re super versatile, easily dressed down with a white t-shirt for a more casual look, or dressed up with a jacket to look more formal. They can really work for anyone! So, why not start filling your wardrobe with paper bag shorts. To get you started, we have found you six styles that you need right now.

1. Black and White Stripes

Black and white stripes are a great place to start. If you gravitate towards a monochrome wardrobe, these will be a great addition, looking flattering and stylish and easy to pair with your existing clothes.

Like all paper bag shorts, styling them with a simple white t-shirt can be good for a casual outfit, but black and white stripes also allow you to go for something a bit edgier. Paired with black ankle cut boots and a leather jacket, you can create a cool evening look. Alternatively, wear a white blouse for a formal outfit that you could even wear to work.

2. Colourful Stripes

Stripes are a common pattern for paper bag shorts but you’re not limited to black and white. By choosing something more colourful, they can offer a summery pop of colour just like these fresh, green shorts.

For a casual weekend outfit, they will work with sandals and sunglasses but for a night out you can pair them with a matching blazer. They also, like all paper bag shorts, come with big pockets which is always an added bonus for women’s clothing!

3. Camo Print

Camo is a really fun pattern to wear, perfect for a day out hiking in the sun, or a different, everyday look for hanging out with friends. As a strong pattern in its own right, camo is best paired with something plainer. It also goes really well with aviators to give your outfit military vibes.

4. Beige

This one might seem basic at a first glance but beige paper bag shorts are such versatile items of clothing that you’ll wonder how you lived without them. They really do go with anything!  However, our favourite ways to style them are with a white blouse, sandals and a summer hat for a safari-inspired look, or with a striped jumper for a cosy evening outfit that you can wear into the autumn months.

5. Deck Chair Stripes

Chunky pastel stripes (which we have lovingly dubbed deck chair stripes) are the ultimate beachy look. The material is breezy, light and perfect for a heatwave or paddling in the sea. Paired with flip flops and a bikini top, they are a must-have for your holiday wardrobe.

6. Animal Print

Animal print is still on trend this year and paper bag shorts haven’t been left out. For a fun and flirty look, cheetah print is the way to go. Like camo, animal print is a bold pattern and therefore works best with something more plain. With heels and a clutch bag, you can create a stylish outfit, ideal for a night out to get drinks with friends.
