Truth: shorts can sometimes be hard to pull off without looking kinda schlubby. And although we love a good skirt, and dresses are a summer staple, we like to mix it up a little and wear something different from time to time. So here are 4 different shorts looks we LOVE.
1. High-waisted denim. High-waisted shorts are the perfect match for another must-have: crop tops. Although high-waisted shorts come in a variety of styles, we say go for denim; it’s a great way to change up what’s otherwise a tired look. Then we went Scandinavian with this gorgeous embroidered crop top and leather clogs.
2. Flouncy Tribal Print. Flouncy shorts in any print are a win in our book, but we just love the tribal print on this pair–and the color palette appeals to our inner desert queen. We paired them with a loose-knit sweater in a desert sunset hue and a pair of grey chukka boots. There’s only one weekend left for Coachella and we’re ready.
3. Sporty Vegan Leather. First there were leather sweatpants; now leather sweat shorts. We say go with it. Take the sporty trend further with a day-glo bomber jacket, but that’s where it stops. We’re not really going to work out in this outfit, so we chose these adorable flatform sandals–still comfy, but way cuter than sneakers.
4. Classic Rolled Chinos. What can we say? We’re suckers for the preppy nautical look. Rolled chinos are truly a classic…plus, they’re super flattering. We paired them with this equally classic nautical striped boatneck top and white leather loafers. This look practically requires a yacht club membership, but a love of Sunday brunch will do.
