Preppy meets pretty in these eyelet shorts — dressy enough to pair with a silk shirt and sporty enough to wear to the beach. The slim and tailored fit features a fly front, belt loops, front pockets and back welt pockets. Favorite rise. Tennis length. Cotton, with cotton lining. Imported.
Rise: Favorite (View our Pants Rise Guide )
I ordered these in the coral and the color and eyelet fabric are very pretty and sturdy. The shorts are a little short and I had to have the very wide waist taken in. For reference, I am 5'1" so my height is not an issue with the shortness.
I would have sent them back if I had not gotten them on a significant promotion. I think an additional inch in length and a less wide waistband would have been huge improvements.

Thank you for your comments. We think the Eyelet Shorts are very pretty and sturdy also. We're glad you were able to make them work for you.
The fabric on these shorts is so neat. Preppy and vintage together! The eyelet makes it look old and new at once, a little thicker than a usual short which is flattering, with a great texture in the eyelet and the patterned look of the eyelet is great! They are a nice color too, not too bright or light. Really flattering!
