Every Body Peta Short Navy Linen.
After 15 years we tackled designing pants and after almost a year of them being one of our best selling pieces, we decided to make them into the perfect pair of summer shorts! Our Peta shorts could be your new best friend this summer and they are part of our Every Day range, pieces that are staples and well loved basics we wear to death!
FEATURES: Peta is a relaxed fit short with a comfy elastic waist, loose leg and relaxed front pockets, exactly like our pants, with a slightly tweaked fit at the thigh (they now have more room). The length of the leg sits just above the knee which is very versatile and can be worn with a plethora of shoes including sneakers, ankle boots, clogs and strappy flat sandals. We wanted Peta to be our comfy and easy pair of shorts in nice soft fabrics, something you can throw on for the beach, but also something you can pattern clash with our fun t-shirts and tops to make them really stand out. We always try to keep a wide audience in mind when designing new garments at made590, and we secretly think we may have nailed it with these shorts! Peta has lovely deep pockets on the front, a relaxed fit at the crotch, mid rise waist (not low and not super high either) and a cute little working drawstring to cinch in and tie up at the waist. We also love the relaxed fit leg which has a slightly aline shape for room on the thighs, and a simple straight turn-up at the hem which gives these a nice little detail and keeps them looking great out of the wash without much effort. You can even cuff the bottom up to make them shorter. We have made the sizing on these shorts pretty standard to slightly generous, with a loose leg at the crotch and thigh, so there will be no riding up or embarrassing camel toe situation here!
HOW TO WEAR: Our Peta shorts will easily take you from day to night with a change of shoe or the addition of accessories. We’ll be wearing our printed Peta shorts pattern clashed with one of our cute Rizzo tops in stripes or plains, as well as our linen spot or simple versions pairing with a printed Easy Tee. The options are endless if you stick to similar tones and different scale prints. Peta shorts can be worn higher waisted or mid waist, and we love them with one of our more fitted tops like Rizzo tees, easy tees or even our Ripley reversible, which looks great tucked in to the lovely waistband of these pants which have structure but aren't too tight fitting at the top. We also love a loose tee like our new EB Louise active shape semi tucked or worn out, loose at the front. The flow of the fabric in these are just lovely in the heat, but also feel like a dressier option to most relaxed casual shorts. We really hope you love this new shape as much as we do!
