Finding the perfect pair of summer shorts can definitely be a challenge—at least it is for me. I always seem to find shorts that look so cute on the hanger, but no so cute on me. Usually, it’s a problem with the size and fit. They’re either too short or too long, ride up or are just not the most uncomfortable for whatever reason. Luckily, after much searching, I’ve finally found a style of shorts I love. The one type of shorts I find so comfortable are high-waisted flowy shorts that look like skirts. The high waist emphasizes a small waist, and the loose fit of the shorts make them so flattering. Best of all, you get the appearance of a cute mini skirt without the hassles of actually wearing one (unlike skirts, these shorts are wind proof!). Summer fashion is all about combining comfort with style, and these shorts are on point.
That’s why I loved this Fashionista’s pair of high-waisted floral flowy shorts. The floral pattern was adorable and I like how she paired her shorts with a black tank top and sneakers to create an edgy contrast to the floral. She completed her look with a stylish black shoulder bag and accent jewelry. The overall look was definitely both comfortable and stylish—a great weekend outfit for walking around the city.
The other thing about flowy shorts is that they’re so versatile. They create an ideal daytime outfit and work as a substitute for a skirt on a night out. Basically, if you don’t have a pair already, go try them! They just may become your new favorite summer shorts, like they are mine.
How To: Swap out your mini skirt or dress for a pair of high-waisted black flowy shorts with a crop top and heels for your next girl’s night out!
