1 Pair Of Gym Shorts + 5 Different Looks = 1 Hell Of A Week!

1 Pair Of Gym Shorts + 5 Different Looks = 1 Hell Of A Week!

Every once in a while, I make a genius style discovery. Today is one of those days. I admit, what I 'discovered' has been in front of me the whole time. The item I am referring to is gym shorts. In my defence, I hate the gym, so it took me a while to really SEE them... Lazy girls of the world, you know what I mean, right? 

Why gym shorts? They're comfortable, they're sweat-proof and they're the easiest pair of shorts to throw on and off (elastic waists FTW)! Moreover, the regular short-shorts silhouette is just a bit blah at the moment. Plus, the athleisure trend is not going anywhere. So, now, I ask you, ladies, why NOT gym shorts? 

There are many ways you can style a pair of these wide-legged, sporty shorts. We like how Taylor Swift switched it up and wore them with a sweater, red lipstick and a fancy bag!
