I usually brainstorm fashion and lifestyle posts shortly after I wake up in the morning. I like to peruse my favorite publications and retailers for the latest and greatest trends. I have to tell you, when I spotted that paper bag shorts were making a comeback a few months ago, I became very excited! I, for one have been a huge fan of tie waist detailing and the ever-so-popular ruffle trend as of late, and since paper bag shorts feature both trends I knew I had to have them!

I bought my first pair of paper bag shorts during the Shopbop sale a few months ago and quickly became obsessed. They’re blue and white gingham print, are chic, fashionable and absolutely adorable! I love to pair my shorts with eyelet tops, and lace blouses, and of course my favorite Tory Burch Miller sandals. I LIVE in mine!

Paper bag shorts are easy to pair with sleeveless tops, short sleeve tops and long sleeve tops too. In fact, we’ve also been seeing them paired with crop tops, especially during spring and summer music festival season. They’re so easy to accessorize it’s unbelievable!

The thing I love the most about paper bag shorts is you can wear them time and time again. You can wear them to a backyard barbecue, a pool party, the 4th of July, a casual brunch with friends, even a bridal or baby shower (with the right top and wedges or strappy heel sandals). The options are endless! Don’t forget, they’ll look great with distressed denim jackets on a cool summer night.

If you’re searching for a trendy and affordable pair of paper bag shorts for summer 2018, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 18 trendy pairs of paper bag shorts under $150. Many are well under $100 but I had to share a few designer pairs that I know you all will love as well. Happy weekend! Stay cool.
