Style FAQ: 5 ways to style your shorts

So long, jeans - short season is here! We have been receiving a wide array of styles in the shop from trusty denim to breezy cotton gauze. We couldn't be more excited! 

One of the most frequently asked questions we are hearing from clients right now is "how do I even style these things?" We get it! In our rainy city, it's rare that our legs ever see the light of day. Shorts may not typically be a part of your everyday outfit choice, but we're here to help you feel confident in soaking up those rays while you can. Here are 5 ways to put together outfits with the most classic short styles

Let the shorts do all the work! Beautifully printed shorts can pair perfectly with a favorite basic tee that you have in your closet. Add a handbag that compliments, some gold earrings, and a white sneaker. You now have an elevated look that took minimal effort!

Throwing on a tee with some denim shorts is an outfit that's hard to beat! But next time you go to your closet, try pairing those shorts with a printed blouse instead. You're still comfy with an extra dash of personality. Throw on a strappy sandal and you're even set to go out on the town!

Who doesn't love a good cotton short? Luckily, they don't have to be just for hanging around the house. When pairing them with a matching top or even just a basic tee or tank, accessorize your outfit with a nice handbag, gold hoops, or some fun sunglasses. This can heighten your look from comfy to sophisticated in seconds! 

Featured Items:
Lilla P - Pull-On Shorts and Scoop Neck Top
Day & Mood - Scarlett Bag
Diff Eyewear - Lenox Sunglasses

Both sporty and chic, the utility short is versatile piece that's a must in any closet. We love pairing these with a fun textured button up, statement earrings, and leather tote. Try french tucking the top for a constructed look.

Marine Layer - Maya Utility Shorts
Rails - Charli Top
Latico Leathers - Margie Tote
K/LLER - Hinge Hoops


Both classy and sassy. The trouser short is a great way to get a more refined summer look. A beautiful blouse, sleek handbag, statement jewelry, and strappy sandal will take you from the work day to girl's night out.
