Short Changed

Lei Chic Aloha wear is just not your thing.

It's taken years of retail therapy to uncover the roots of your floral phobia. Your third grade yearbook photo. A hot pink monstrosity. A matching fake flower behind teased bangs.

Just say cheesy.

Get into island style with Roberta Oaks' new Aloha shorts. Made from soft, vintage shirts in red, black and blue floral prints, these cuties mark the designer's first foray into shorts.

Lei ChicSmart details, like a luxurious silk lining with hidden side zipper, keep you comfy. A high waistline ensures nothing spills out when you're romping around town. And a slim cut gives your casual look a touch of class.

Pair it with a soft tee, button-down shirt, or even one of Oak's new vibrant silk tops, with colored buttons down the back and flowy coattail hemline. So you can finally embrace the spirit of aloha.

You'll have a leg up on weekend wear, no matter how you work it.

With a pair of really hot pants.

Roberta Oaks Aloha shorts, $88, are available in XS-M. Roberta Oaks Boutique, 19 N. Pauahi St. E-mail for more information.
