heating up the ocean beaches as well as the city streets this summer. One of the season’s biggest fashion hits, shorts are turning up everywhere and becoming a mainstay in wardrobes
The shorts are anything but basic. From office-worthy culottes and rompers to casual, sassy denim cutoffs, there’s plenty of short shorts out there to choose from — that is if you want to show off your legs — and if you don’t, don’t worry, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy wearing shorts when the weather gets chilly — just team your shorts up with tights! For a more professional look, belt longer shorts and pair them with a blazer and pumps; for more casual offices, sweaters and flats are great with shorts. Here’s what’s trending on the short list right now: Denim cutoffs An old favorite, these frayed shorts are always a laid-back option for lazy summer days. The more faded and soft the shorts, the better. Check out Levi’s 501 Worn Cut-Offs. High-waisted shorts A glamorous retro style inspired by Hollywood pin-up starlets. Often belted or buttoned up with sailor-front style, these shorts add feminine curves to slim waists. Or go for a high-waisted short with a fold-over waistband, if you want to emphasize your hips. Check out Paul & Joe’s polka-dotted “Reviens” shorts.
