Staying stylish in the summer can be a challenge — less clothes can definitely translate into less effort. But shorts are always a great way of keeping cool, and adding in a dash of preppy plaid is just enough to take them from functional to fun. Pair them with a trendy summer scarf like Heroes‘ Tawny Cypress or with layered tanks like Vanessa Minnillo. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started:

Splurge with Joie “Little Thoughts” Plaid Shorts, $160 at bloomingdales.com or Vince Laundered Plaid Cuffed Shorts, $109 at shopbop.com.

Go straight to the preppy source with these Sconset Patchwork madras shorts, $58 at jcrew.com.

Get the look for a steal with these Madras Rollup Shorts, $35 at %20womens&productId=2331_3791″ target=”_blank”>ae.com, or these Plaid Shorts, $18 at forever21.com.

The outfit is cute, esp. Vanessa…but wutz up with the scarf?…shorts paired with a scarf…its a lil contradicting and riduculous looking.

Please people. Vanessa has muscular in-shape legs that are a clear result of working out. Her thighs are full of muscle, not fat. I would LOVE to see all of your legs, you jealous girls!!!

Vanessa looks great in these shorts. It looks to me like Lolly is drinking way to much haterad and she sounds like one of those stick bone girls with no shape LOL. HATER!!!
