While doing my daily scroll through H&M—it’s part of my job!—I came across the prettiest pair of shorts that instantly reminded me of a pair Kate Middleton wore last year. Not too short and not too tight, I truly think they’re the perfect pair of shorts that solve all of my usual gripes. Don’t you hate it when the shorts market is saturated with teeny-tiny denim cutoffs and few alternatives?
H&M’s Linen-Blend Shorts ($35) are a dead-ringer for Kate Middleton’s pair and are bound to sell out quickly, so what are you waiting for? I’d highly recommend copying the Princess of Wales and styling the shorts with a striped sweater for a nautical-inspired look with a dash of preppiness. Scroll down to re-create her entire outfit, including her favorite $69 sneakers.
