My winter uniform consists of pairing everything with dark denim jeans. So, I'm always thrown off when I have to start showing my legs. (Well, I don't really have to, and I often revert to maxi dresses. But sometimes I'm doing something that requires shorts.) So, if you want to make your "shorts outfit" look stylish, how do you do it? I think it's all about -
1) showing only the amount of skin that looks appropriate for you and for the situation
2) balancing the top with what's on the bottom
Here are some good examples -
I haven't had many shorts for the past few years, because they are either way too short or way too long. I am so excited that retailers are finally making different length shorts. Old Navy has shorts with a 5" and 7" inseam. I bought several last week. They fit great. They are on sale this weekend, so you could get them even cheaper than I did.
J. Crew always has great t-shirts, which are on sale online this weekend as well. If I didn't make my own t-shirts, this is what I would buy -
I hope this helps your summer style. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
