I cannot remember a summer as consistently hot and amazing as this one! This summer’s high temperatures are the spark we all needed to get outside and enjoy (mask free when appropriate) the outdoors, especially in the midst of everything else going on. I am someone who loves the heat and with my love of fashion, summer pieces are some of my favorites within my wardrobe.
Sporting shorts = summer! Especially here on the east coast if we can enjoy three, sometimes four months with this seasonal wardrobe staple we are fortunate.
Shorts are versatile and practical during this time of year. Whether you dress them up with a pair of heels and a dressy blouse or dress them down with a t-shirt and sneakers – it just works!
Here are some of my favorite styles!
This look is elevated, polished, chic all at the same time. Like in this image paired with ankle booties or with your favorite flat or ballet shoe it remains on-trend and classic.
Refined and sophisticated is the definition of this style. Socially distanced business meeting or date night – perfection!
This year’s look for denim seems to go back to the longer length we experienced in the early 2000s. Naturally, shorter versions work for more casual and relaxed looks, but this pairing is so boho-chic – love!
I find this style is a winner for all body types and remains comfortable and one can move with ease.
Variations of this style are interesting and can be a little more “edgy” if you will. There are several options that feature different hardware that give it a little of that street style look.
All the styles I’m featuring are favorites, but this one is truly at the top of the list. It is important to think of the weight of the knit because too light can look sloppy and too heavy is bulky and hot for this time of year. This ensemble knocks it right out of the park!
The trusted relaxed version of shorts – one that we choose to go to like a best friend! From our backyard to running errands or a weekend getaway at a cottage.
No matter the style you opt for, wear your choice with comfort and confidence. Keep in mind your scheduled occasion.
So while we enter mid-August and are wishful for the continued warm temperatures, shorts are a must and can transition into the cooler evenings with a great sweater.
