Short Story

If there is only one garment that truly screams “SUMMER!”, then it has to be shorts. In the summertime, shorts are a clear choice for daytime wear and with a bit of styling, shorts can easily translate to more of an evening look.  Today, there is a veritable plethora of trends hitting the shorts scene. While jean shorts and bermudas are still classics, they might be getting a run for their money with some other choices.

Chino Shorts: Made from a comfortable cotton twill material, chino shorts are lightweight yet more structured than other short counterparts. Chino shorts are also easily available in a rainbow of colors to pack a punch. Additionally, chino shorts with their simplicity of construction are a great canvas for bold prints.

Pair with: a button down shirt, plain white tee, or a frilly blouse.

The Classic Jean Short: Always in style, the classic jean short will never let you down. Try a dark pair for a slimming look that will go well from day to night.

Pair with: Anything! From your favorite tee to a dressy blouse, anything goes.

Lace Shorts: Frilly, feminine, and youthful lace shorts are a must-have in your summer closet. These shorts are often constructed with either a conventional button-fly closure or elastic, and are perfect for special occasions when you get bored of skirts and slacks.

Pair with: a slim fitting tank or tee that is void of any embellishment or frills. Add a statement necklace or big earrings for interest on the upper half that doesn’t compete with the shorts.

Bermudas: Worried whether your shorts are “too short”? With Bermudas, you never have to question the appropriateness of your shorts. Bermudas, like their Chino friends, are often available in a variety of bold colors.

Pair with: A tunic style top, lacy blouse, or even a blazer.

Leather Shorts: Bring out your inner rock star with a pair of leather shorts. Leather shorts are especially suited to concerts, or other times when you feel extra edgy. Wear them for a night out at the clubs when other garments just won’t suffice.

Pair with: A destroyed tee, tights, or a vest.
