Between Coachella, Govenors Ball, the upcoming Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza, it's hard not to have some "music festival style" fatigue after seeing countless attendees wearing torn denim cutoffs. (Just ask Chloë Sevigny). For a more polished and even work-appropriate look, silky patterned shorts are a dressy alternative to skirts and will show off toned legs equally well. Try adding a crisp white blouse and a rich brown stacked heel sandal to No. 21's delicate canary yellow floral bottoms for a chic casual Friday outfit. If you prefer a more minimal take on the style, 3.1 Phillip Lim's striped pair is a riff on pin-striped trousers that would be great with simple white tee and black oxfords. An added bonus to many of these styles (like the ones from J.Crew and Zara) is that unlike the short inseams that you commonly see on denim styles, they feature longer lengths to keep you from feeling overexposed.
