I’m not normally much of a shorts kinda gal, but the Jane Plain Shorts by Bright & Beautiful were game changers!
I think what sets these beauties apart is the girly flare and fit that made me question “Wait, am I wearing a skirt?” The best kind of question when it comes to shorts, as far as I’m concerned.
Bright & Beautiful by Collectif is very much influenced by the swinging 60s and 70s, aiming to bring you all of the fun and colour but mixed with a modern twist.
This particular style ticks all of those boxes. The shade of green is simply gorgeous and complimentary to the vast array of skin tones out there. On the topic of green, it’s really doing things for me this season and is a big leap away from the usual pinks that fill my wardrobe. Change is as good as a holiday right?
The Jane shorts are high waisted allowing you to showcase that nipped waist before they flow out in all the right places. I’m shot sporting these in the (albeit, mild) Brisbane winter and their floaty nature meant a nice little breeze: I can imagine this would be welcomed ventilation come summer!
The shorts do up at the front with both a button and zip and here comes the part you’ve all been waiting for….JANE. HAS. POCKETS! The fabric is 100% polyester and a quick steam was all that was needed to get this pair of pretties ready for an outing. I’m lazy and couldn’t tell you the last time I actually ironed so if it can be steamed, I’m on board.
Dress Jane casual with a plain tee or knit as I have here, or doll her right up with heels and a strapless top for a night out. The options are endless.
Bright & Beautiful sizing is the same as Collectif ranging from XXS through to 4XL. I’m wearing an XXS (UK 6) here and found the measurements to be bang on for my 24” waist. There’s no give in the fabric, so you want to use the size chart as a guide to ensure a good fit.
Bright & Beautiful offers International shipping so no matter where you are in the world, their beautiful threads can be yours.
