Prints, prints, and more prints! Stylish girls everywhere couldn't get enough of prints this year and the same goes for one of the hottest trends today—printed shorts. Gone are the days when simple denim cut-offs and simple bold colored shorts ruled the fashion scene. 

Printed shorts are a great addition to your closet as they will add fun and variety to your everyday outfits. With our tropical weather, shorts are best to combat the heat and playful prints will make you feel like it's an endless summer. Pair your aztec print shorts with just a plain white tee, a studded belt, and some colorful sandals for a perfect sunny day out with your family. Wear your printed leopard shorts with a printed top, statement necklace, and glittery pumps for a fun night out with friends. This trend will definitely add a big dose of cool to your wardrobe with the endless possibilities of head-turning outfits. However you choose to style these must-have shorts, remember to infuse your own fashion sense and personality. Whether the prints on your shorts are bold, big, micro, or minimal, make sure to have fun and don't be afraid to try something new! Take a look at how these four bloggers chose to wear their printed shorts and check out where you can grab a pair for yourself.
