There's a scene at the beginning of High Society where Grace finds out that the reporters are coming to cover her wedding. In it she wears a pair of tan high waisted pants belted with a matching blouse and red espadrilles. I'm sure there's a better word for it, but for now I'm going to go with "safari inspired". It's a classic look that I'd first imagine wearing deep in a jungle somewhere at the turn of the century while studying the native plants and animals. Second would be a costume party, mostly because I haven't seen pants like those in, I can't say when. I have however seen several pairs of shorts lately that have the look. It's a more modern approach, an update if you will. This pair from Zara immediately reminded me of that scene and as it is my mission to dress in a more ladylike/figure flattering manner, I'm tempted to at the very least try them on for size. For a modern and less costumy twist on a classic ensemble, I'd pair with a relaxed peach colored blouse and finish off the look with classic espadrilles, a bucket bag, and oversized cat eye sunglasses.
What do you think, would you wear these shorts?
