A summer for shorts.

Posted in Fashion by upc boutique on July 12, 2010

I hate dealing with the heat.  For all intents and purposes I have pretty much retired all of my denim for the summer.  Yes, leggings are great and don’t get me wrong my first love are chinos…but when when the heat becomes TOO unbearable which it has of late I turn to shorts.

Now truth be told, I’ve done a post on shorts in the past and that’s mainly because well it’s the summer and we ALL need a tan on our legs.  But for one reason or another people REFUSE to embrace the short and I don’t understand why.  Well I am here to tell you that this needs to change.  Do you really want to walk around in 100 degree weather in a pair of long tight pants?  ABSOLUTELY not.   So we at UPC have decided to make it a mandate to get our customers to hold, feel and try on the short and ultimately make it a staple in the wardrobe!

And yes…we have options for both men and women.  So drop on by or visit us online to grab a pair…

Alright so I have become a little obsessed with shorts lately.  I have usually always worn either right at the knee or right above the knee a plain and simple silhouette short.  I’ve never really strayed outside of the box.  So when we received shipment of camo I was instantly intrigued.  I have fought the trend of the drop pant for a while now but I may slowly be succumbing to its constant tap on the shoulder reminding me that there are other styles than just prep!

So I decided to try them on…I was hooked.  I was also very surprised.  I never thought in a million years that I would be able to pull these off…but it was suprisingly easy.  Moral of the story…don’t be afraid to try on new pieces!  Yes I know that it may not flow with everything else in your wardrobe but we ALL need statement pieces and this is exactly that…
