Summer Shorts & How 2 Wear Them

4 months ago

Shorts are hard 2 style. Most of the time we get it wrong. Forget everything you know about shorts and how you're "supposed" to wear them, and listen carefully. . .

Rn I'm in this phase where I either want to dress totally down (think grunge-esque) or super-sophisticated.


Short shorts remind me of teens, and if not worn right, I can't take you seriously.

Bc these are high-waisted, you can get away with wearing a v classy bodysuit here. I like these b/c they are still short w.o being obnoxious. Flats, chic sandals, or heels all work, and an oversized sweater looks amazing w. this lewk.

Casually Waisted


These are high-rise but casual. Wear a plain baby tee (in a neutral color) with them + add a sneaker. To be hella chic throw on a structured blazer.

SETS


As part of a set, I am all in and here for the uber flowy, girly, and juvenile look. I still think this looks like something you sleep in BUT when styled correctly, it passes as cute af.

STYLING: a mini bag, either plain & dainty sneakers/flats, or a low heel.

Obv we gotta pay attn to the JEAN short. I like mine 1-2 sizes larger than my actual denim, tight shorts are a NO.

Pair with sneakers and a tee. Whatever sweatshirt/sweater I have, I always throw it over my shoulders w. this look, topped off w. a crossbody purse.

I would say the Ksubi's would look sick with a silk blouse (semi tucked in) and ultra high pointed heels. 👌 👌 👌

B/W


P.S. I'm rarely a fan of white denim shorts, and they'd have to be pretty distressed for me to like them, aka dressed all the way down.

But black denim is great + these Paige shorts cover your assets nicely. Size up and they are going to look PERFECT.

Also ps- I can't get into the silky type of shorts. IMO they look like pajama bottoms and I always cringe when I see women wearing them out paired w. heels.

So basically it's all about the STYLING. Silk in sets is okay, for now keep all your denim shorts slightly larger and not up your ass, and make sure to keep your footwear and handbag on point.

LASTLY, when I mention a bodysuit I mean the classiest one you can find. Classy does mean sexy and those things can coexist. Watch out for tmrw's post re: The Bodysuit and here is a little taste of one that I love
