Shorts are becoming more acceptable for everyday and every occasion. When I think of shorts I think casual. The key to making your shorts acceptable for most occasions is creating a polished and comprehensive look. Sometimes because of the casualness of shorts, we forgo adding elements that we would normally wear in any outfit.
Do wear accessories. The right accessories can turn an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary instantly. I am usually a minimalist when it comes to accessories; however a gold lariat necklace, neck scarf or choker are on trend for the summer. A hat is always a great way to create cool look effortlessly.
Do wear a blazer. Blazers have this fabulous ability to add polish and really complete a look. Wearing the most casual summer pieces such as jean cutoffs and a tank can take on new life when cloaked with a blazer. Additionally, it is another great way to create a smart look without exerting a ton of effort creating it.
Do wear fancy shoes. I’ve always wholeheartedly believed that shoes make an outfit. Just because you are wearing shorts doesn’t mean that your ‘fit isn’t deserving of a fabulous pair of shoes. The right shoes can elevate a look to new levels of chic. I like the look of lace up flats or oxfords with cutoff shorts for day and spice it up for evening with a pair of sexy heels. Heels also have the ability of enhancing your legs making them look amazing.
Now it’s your turn to implement these cool girl tips the next time you throw on a pair of shorts this summer!
