In particular, a pair of pleated denim shorts with a removable belt was snapped up by myself and 2 of my 3 sisters. (taste may be genetic but none of us are the exact same size)
Paired with funky accessories and a ruffled tank, the shorts formed the basis of a budget-friendly patio ensemble that got plenty of compliments.
Here's a variation on the outfit that clocks in at under 97 bucks!
