How to Wear Shorts

Outfits with Shorts

I'm recovering from surgery, so I don't have any new outfits to share, but I did want to do something fashion related for you guys this week, so I dug through my archives from the last couple of years to share some outfit ideas for shorts. Now that I work from home, I wear shorts a lot more regularly during the summer - not just one weekends. So over the last two summers, I've built up my collection of shorts to include more than just denim cut-offs.

Shorts can be a little tricky to style. Denim shorts and t-shirts are all well and good, but I always end up feeling a little sloppy if I end up going somewhere other than home. That said, it gets really hot where I live in the summer, so it's best to keep things lightweight. So how do I keep things interesting? I choose shirts with interesting details like a tie hem, lace or fun print; I opt for colored shorts instead of plain denim; and I stay away from plain rubber flip flops. I hope these outfits inspire you to reach for something other than an old t-shirt this summer!

Sizing info: I'm 5'2" and wear a size 6/8 or medium in tops, size 6/8 in bottoms, and size 7 in shoes. I prefer shorts with a 3.5-5 inch inseam.
