How To Style The Long Short Trend Like A Pro
Thanks to the athleisure trend, bicycle shorts hit the mainstream last season. Now designers are taking note, creating shorts that are mid-thigh (or right above the knee), high-waisted and universally flattering! The long short can be dressed up or down, so whether you’re riding a Peleton bike or heading for brunch these shorts will bring you there in style.
Mesh detail elevates them, made from recycled fabrics. Added an oversized sweater, tied in a knot to get a cropped looked and paired with a denim jacket and belt bag. Try with a moto jacket or a mule to completely transform the look.
Long Denim Short
These shorts have that “ripped feel” which is so on trend this season. I started with basic tee and elevated it with an oversized boyfriend blazer, which is a great trick since ripped denim can read more casual.

The great thing about these shorts is they are so light weight. The geometric pattern in a rose shade looks stunning with a button up olive blouse. These shorts can also transition to Fall with an opaque tight and ankle bootie.

Suit Pant Short
Think a classic trouser but cut it off above the knee. Suiting has come back in such a big way! Look out for suiting in a breathable fabric for those super hot days.
