Hello! Hello! And happy Fashion Friday!
With summer officially here, I'm excited to be diving head first into my favorite fashion season. I'm a sucker for light summer dresses, white eyelet, shorts and all things colorful! To inspire your outfits for this new season, I'm teaming up with several other fabulous fashion bloggers today to showcase 8 ways to wear shorts.
8 Ways to Wear Shorts
Now I'm the first to admit the older you get the harder shorts are to pull off. Growing up in Florida I basically lived in shorts almost year-round and had dozens of pairs even through college. Not sure I should admit this, but way too short shorts and a tank top was my uniform at UF. Luckily my fashion tastes have grown since then.
I still love wearing shorts, but now I try to find a more refined way to pull them off. They certainly need to be bit a longer and actually have some style.
This summer I'm pairing my white shorts with a vintage v-neck t-shirt and my denim vest. I got the denim vest late last summer (seen HERE & HERE) and I can't get enough of it. It's a great way to make a simple outfit look current and I love the way it pairs with my favorite summer dresses.
To add a pop of color I pulled out my pink canvas espadrilles and turquoise earrings and bracelet. I wanted to add some color without making it too matchy-matchy.
As I mentioned, I know shorts can be hard to pull of, but I believe that if you find a pair that fits right and is the appropriate length almost anyone can wear them. I've put some suggestions below for some shorts in different lengths. Pick ones that match your body type and personal comfort level.
Also, never underestimate the power of a good heel to make your legs look better. And if shorts really, really aren't your thing - this outfit would also look great with a pair of white cuffed jeans. Either way, this is my favorite current ways to wear shorts.
