The Nopal Shorts are the new and more detailed version of our best selling Papaya Shorts. We updated the waistband with a flat front band. Two front pleats and side pockets give the pants a more refined look. The Nopal Shorts feature our favorite high rise and we kept the elastic waistband on the back of the waistband to give you an easy and comfortable fit. 

We love styling these shorts with our Latana Button Up for an easy put together look or with a graphic tee and sneakers for a fun day out. 

The Nopal Shorts are available in 100% Linen in black, agave, terra, and cacao, and in tencel seersucker in gingham.

Material and Care 

1. Fabric: Linen 

Fiber Content: 100% Linen in 5 oz

Description:  Linen is a natural fiber that has minimal environmental impacts. Given its properties, it's easy to love, maintain, and wash. Our medium-weight linen has a luxe hand feel that drapes beautifully with each design. We selected a slightly heavier weight than last year's linen to ensure your pieces last longer and do not pill or tear. 

Care: Preshrunk and machine washable. Wash on normal with cool water. Tumble dry or hang dry (which we prefer). Linen wears over time and will soften with each wash.

2. Fabric: Tencel Seersucker in Gingham 

Fiber Content: 100% Tencel

Description: This black and white 1/4" tencel seersucker is the perfect subtle print to add to your wardrobe. This fabric is lightweight with a fluid drape and a soft, slightly crinkly seersucker texture. This fabric is opaque, but we recommend pairing it with skin colored undergarments. 

Care: Wash cold on delicate cycle and hang dry. The Earth and your garments will thank you!

Sizing

 Sotela's approach to sizing is a little different. Instead of using the conventional small, medium and large, we've decided to change our wording because why not! We want to keep things simple and offer the most out of your clothing. 

 

 

Here's a step by step of how to choose your Sotela size:

  1. Measure yourself – This one is very important if you shop online, which as of now, I think we all are! Check out our tutorial to measure yourself because we use low hip measurements with our clothing. 
  2. Once you have your measurements, go to the product page for the garment you are interested in and click on the “Sizing and fit” tab or “Garment Measurements for Petite, etc.”
  3. The garment measurements on the product page will tell you the actual width and length of the garment. For example: the Ryan Trouser measures 26″ with an unstretched waistband and 42″ in the hip for the size 1.
  4. Based on your measurements, choose a size that is about 2″ more than your largest measurement. For example: I have a 39″ hip. The size 1 hip measures 42″ which gives me about 3″ of ease. The size 0 measures 40″ in the hip making it too small for me.
  5. Make sure to use your largest measurement when choosing a size, especially if you are looking at a jumpsuit or dress. If your bust is larger than your hip, I’d recommend choosing a size based on your bust because that ensures it will give sufficient ease for the rest of your body.
  6. Lastly, if you are still unsure, email us hello (at) sotela.co with your measurements! We are happy to recommend a size.
