5 Ways to Wear Drawstring Shorts — More Than Just Gym Wear

I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing drawstring shorts outside the gym. In my head, these nifty clothing creations should only be relegated for sportswear and nothing more. But now (there’s always a “but” these days), with the existence of cutesy drawstring shorts, they can pass up as everyday wear.

Okay, let’s figure out how to make drawstring shorts work for places other than the gym. First, you have to search for a really chic pair of shorts. Shopbop has it all for you:

1. Sea Combo Drawstring Shorts, $219

The key there is finding a pair with an adorable print. This pair from Sea is a winning choice, thanks to its black-and-white print that makes it so adorable with collared tops, tank tops, or pretty much anything. I say wear it with something bright for a pop of color.
