Whether or not this unusually warm weather means that Arizonians are in for an unbearably hot summer, it is time to get the wardrobe ready for the triple digits. Of course this more than likely means shorts… I know, I know shorts can be a very scary piece of clothing.
Hopefully this blog will help you get over that fear and purchase a great pair of shorts that you’ll not only look amazing in, but that you’ll also feel comfortable and confident in.
Believe it or not shorts don’t have to be short, tight, cut-off ,or denim. Take these Trina Turk ‘Kenn’ silk shorts for example, the sophisticated silhouette will look great with a dolman or a chic short-sleeved button up.
If you are feeling a bit self-conscious of the gams then try a pair of classic Bermuda shorts—the darker the color of course the more you can camouflage. This very tailored pair by Theory can be made a bit more summer/spring appropriate with a neon fitted tee and a great pair of embellished sandals.
On the shorter…I mean petite side of the spectrum? Then look for a pair with a shorter inseam. Pair these red Joie shorts with a pair of sky-high wedges and your legs will look as though they go on for miles. There’s never been a better reason to wear short shorts.
Feeling a bit nautical this season? As in your perfect day would consist of a breezy day on a boat with champagne, cheese, fruit, and your closest girlfriends. Even if you can’t head on over to the nearest body of water, you’ll feel like you’ve just embarked on a nautical journey in these Kate Spade ‘Nico’ striped shorts.
Embrace your inner vintage maven and try on these YSL high-wasited shorts. This is for the boldest fashionistas indeed in this tomato red color. Pair with your favorite vintage top and accessories to really complete the look.
If you are still not feeling too comfortable with the idea of wearing shorts this summer, then you must try these. The generous cut and flowy silk appear more like an adorable spring skirt than a pair of shorts. Wear the D&G floral-print with a solid color shirt and fun pair of sandals.
Whatever you do remember that confidence is always the best accessory. So get into that dressing room and try on a sexy pair of shorts!
