Last summer, I bought a few nicer pairs of shorts that I did wear quite a bit, but I ended up running out to buy super casual shorts I could just pull on and go. I needed shorts that I could wear around the pool, lake, beach, to throw on over my swim suit or to run errands, and go to various outdoor sporting and kid events that wouldn’t show or stick to my sweat. After seeing a few of my friends wearing the Madewell pull-on shorts, I decided that’s exactly what I needed.
Unfortunately, by the time I got there, they were already sold out. It’s by far their most popular short, and they carry it every year. Well, that wasn’t going to happen to me this year! I’ve already purchased this black pair and this…
These shorts have an elastic waist band and are loose without looking sloppy. They also have pockets! Plus, they look great on so many body types, and they come in a wide range of sizes! For sizing reference, I’m wearing an xxs in the picture.

Outfit ideas: I like the way they look with a casual button down blouse (pictured). A popover shirt or a linen shirt would be cute, too. And to dress them up a bit, you could wear some espadrilles (here and here). I also love that these look great with t-shirts and flip flops. And I’ll be honest, these are probably the shorts I’ll end up wearing most this summer.
