J.Crew: New Arrival - Purple Zebra Shorts

These are J.Crew's chino "critter" shorts (probably). They are item #12886, but I could not find them online. These shorts were with the rest of the chino shorts, and I believe they are a 3" inseam.

These shorts fit true to size, and are the nice, soft, chino fabric that J.Crew uses in their other chino shorts. They are a medium lavender color, with embroidered grey zebras.

I really love these shorts. I love the color purple, and I'm so glad that it's making so many appearances in fashion this spring. Note that this lavender color is a bit darker than the "misty lavender" color that some of J.Crew's tops (Jackie cardigan and some tees) come in.

I think the zebras are so cute, and I am glad they are grey - I think it complements the lavender color nicely. Here is an up close shot of the zebra.

These shorts were $49.50, which I think is fairly standard for J.Crew's chino shorts. I did end up getting these.

What do you think? Do you like these shorts? Are you sick of zebras? (These questions are not mutually exclusive!)

Cute, but what is with this Zebra obsession J.Crew has lately???

I think it is a spring trend, right? Not sure where it came from though. I have to say, I love the JCrew grey zebra tee, even if it is a bit controversial :)
