Mix Up Your Finch Shorts

Finch Shorts & TopErinComment

Banded shorts are everywhere this season and we've seen them with a lot of fun details and in lots of fun fabrics and colors.  We thought we'd share a few of our favorites so you could get some ideas on how you could modify our Finch Shorts.  This bold green pair from Gymboree has several great design elements.  See that piping around the cute belt and buttons on the bands?

And don't be afraid of a little print or pattern.  Here's an adorable plaid version from Janie and Jack.

A recent discovery for me in ready to wear kids clothing has quickly become a favorite of mine.  Olive's Friend Pop out of Australia has these fantastic shorts this season with a little fun surprise on the inside of the bands + two simple pockets perfect for collecting lots of small items to test your washing machine's tolerance for foreign objects.

For those of you who may be getting into the 'back to school' mode, may I suggest our Finch Shorts in a rich velventeen, corduroy or even a tweed??  Paired with some tights or leggings, these shorts will take your little girl through the fall, just the same as any skirt would.

One of my fall favorites are these from the UK's Caramel:
