Trending: Coated Skinny Jeans

I recently talked about my favorite denim trend for fall - traditional skinny jeans. But as the fall denim guides come out, I'm reminded of a few more favorites, like boyfriend jeans and coated denim. Ken and I recently saw some coated skinnies at Target, so it looks like the trend will be widely available this year and at various price points. Image via Amazon Fashion

Last year it was all about solid-colored denim. For 2013, patterned shorts top the list of summer trends in shorts. Classic prints like floral and polka-dot are still widely available, but Aztec patterns in particular are very trendy this summer. I really love these Ikat-print shorts. Designer brands like Burberry and Lilly Pulitzer have well-tailored patterned shorts . However, more affordable stores like Old Navy, Kohl's,  and Target have a nice selection of women's patterned shorts under $20.

There are so many ways to wear the tailored patterned shorts. These semi-dressy cuffed shorts look great casual, but you can also dress them up with a blouse and even a blazer. Here are three ways to wear patterned shorts this summer.
