I’m not sure when exactly shorts became a successful way to look formal. When I say formal, I mean that you can wear them for a cocktail party or even a red carpet event like the lovely Olivia Palermo.
Today’s Fashionista is wearing hot pink lace shorts with an untucked button down-blouse, a neon orange peplum blazer, nude pumps and a Carolina Herrera bronze bag. Tiny shorts have never looked so fabulous!
I personally adore wearing shorts for almost any occasion. The best part of shorts are the different lengths and sizes for every type of body and for this hot weather, shorts are always the perfect option. They are comfortable, light-weight and you don’t have to worry about the wind lifting them like you do with skirts, so for us interns this is our best bet.
Try this pair of high-rise lace shorts from Forever 21 with a simple white sleeveless top from Equipment and an orange blazer like this one from Club Monaco. To accessorize, if you’re wearing enough bright colors, go for the basics to settle down. A pair of basic nude peep toe pumps from marvelous Mr. Christian Louboutin and a nude or bronze colored bag like this Rebecca Minkoff can work perfectly for the occasion.
It is always important to have the basic colors of accessories in your wardrobe; and nude pumps and bag are must-haves especially during this season. Notice there is no jewelry involved in this Fashionista’s outfit, however she shows the meaning of chic with a day-to-night look. Try the same look for work with flats and change them to pumps in the afternoon.
This Fashionista shows the perfect way to incorporate shorts for a day at work and a night out. Wearing this type of outfit will make you look presentable, feel comfortable and look chic.
