SLOPPY HOLLY COMBAT TROUSER
One thing I love about the warmer months, aside from the influx of fun Spring and Summer trends, is the new freedom to don cropped pants, silky skirts, and short shorts without freezing my hiney off or looking like a total fool and/or floozy. Without the pressure of having to cover up for the sake of keeping warm, the possibilities when it comes to stylish bottoms are truly bottomless -- whether you dare to bare those gams, or prefer to keep them sheathed in longer slacks made from a more breathable, spring-friendly material. With all the fashionable options available, how does a girl decide which kind of skirt or trousers best suits her tush? You could go the expensive route and buy every pair of pants, capris, shorts, or skirt in sight... or you could let the stars be your guide and let Stylescopes help you dress to impress and charm the pants off everyone this week! Pisces girls will look tailored and chic in a pair of high-wasted high waters, Virgos will hit the town looking edgy in a zipper-front skirt, and Tauruses will knock out two birds with one stone in a cute one-shoulder romper! Check out the slideshow for your sign and take a look at some cute outfit halves that will be sure to complete your most stylish ensemble this week!
