SHOP THE LOOK
Happy Monday friends! Today I’m styling a super easy summer outfit that proves you totally can wear shorts with something other than flats! Once considered a fashion faux pas (and for good reason!) pairing a pair of shoes with height with your shorty shorts is totally acceptable and can create an easy casual chic look if you do it right. Today I’m sharing a little style tip on how to do it without looking too…showy.
All my girls out there with shorter legs know, wearing flat sandals and sneakers doesn’t really help our situation much. But pop on a pair of high heels or wedges and bam! Instant confidence booster. That’s why wearing shorts in the summer used to not be my favorite because of the idea that they had to be worn with a flat sandal or slip on. Wrong! With the popularity of wedges (AKA the much more comfortable and wearable version of the high heel!), you can totally get away with pairing them with your shorts.
Here’s the trick: 1 – don’t wear your shortest shorts or cut offs. 2 – loose your tight tanks and camis and opt for a top with volume and/or sleeves.
Start by finding a pair of shorts that aren’t Daisy Duke-inspired, like this pair of white denim shorts that are super easy to cuff for a more polished look. Next up, pop on a top that isn’t form fitting and will balance out the outfit. This top with the most darling eyelet sleeve detail is on sale for only $33 and you’ll love how versatile it is! Last of all, put on your favorite pair of wedges and strut your stuff! I can’t say enough about these Marc Fisher wedges, y’all. I got them in January and not a week has gone by without me wearing them + they’ve held up through all of the wear since then!!
