Opt For a Pretty Printed Shorts Set and Get the Kate Mara Look


Get ready for the simplest way to get chic and fashion forward style this spring and summer: a matching short and shirt set in a daring print. No color coordinating or piece styling drama involved—the trendy outfit is ready to go as is! Choose a luxe fabric with grown up appeal and add a cool necklace and fancy heels to the ensemble, like Kate Mara did at a House of Cards event this week, to make sure the separates don't borderline looking like pajamas. Another tip: go for a intricate pattern, perhaps one with embellishment or embroidery, that demands to be seen. While Mara's delicate floral scheme on her Mulberry set is perfectly proper, we've chosen a print from Topshop that's a little more rowdy! To break up the matchy-matchiness of it, finish the look with a metallic collar and a pair of beige pumps. Pack it for your resort getaway or wear it for a hot night out with the girls; it's perfect for all your warm weather adventures!
