The Ultimate Guide To Summer Shorts

Wearing shorts is the most obvious fashion solution for being comfortable when the mercury soars.  But not everyone loves shorts.  Luckily this season there are so many different cuts, styles and silhouettes that you’re guaranteed to find at least one (or two or three) pairs that should call your closet home.

Jogging Short

Jogging short is the best investment! Pair with a matching shirt for a chic but casual look. Adding a pair of  trendy sunglasses or layering necklaces is an easy way to elevate a sweater.

Printed Short

We all have a million styles of basic t-shirts and tanks, so why not add a printed short to elevate those t-shirts and tanks. These high-waisted chiffon shorts do just the trick. Bonus points for adding the matching kimono.

Biker Short

The biker short trend just won’t quit (thank Kim K.) For the perfect cropped look, start with an oversized t-shirt. Gather the excess fabric in the back and tie into a knot, and tuck the knot under. Complete the off-duty model look by adding an oversized blazer.

Long Short

Tall girls rejoice! The long short trend is here to save the day. I’ve added a neutral crop top to have a little hint of skin showing and then a cream coloured, boyfriend-style blazer.
