Style Advice of the Week

When the warm weather strikes, Fashionistas everywhere turn to their shorts. Reflected on the runways, models strut the catwalk in mini shorts with eight-inch heels. Now, my advice is not for you to wear the shortest shorts you own with a pair of sky-high heels, but for your to interpret the look in a classy and chic manner.

Shorts once had a bad reputation in the fashion world, but times have changed and this season it is all about tailored shorts. The classic jean short is such a purposeful and versatile piece that can be easily dressed up. Denim shorts and heels is a combination that has really grown in popularity over the past year. You can style it in a variety of different ways in order to suit your personal style. Whether you choose to go for a clean-cut look with stiletto sling backs or for a bohemian vibe with a pair of chunky platforms like this week’s Fashionista, the options are simply endless.

Finding the perfect pair of shorts can be tricky. The first thing to look at is the fabric. I suggest looking for a dressy fabric like a silk, tweed or heavy cotton because these fabrics have more structure. Fit is key! You don’t want shorts that are too baggy or too tight; you want a pair that is flattering and comfortable. If you’re looking for a pair of shorts to wear with heels, the hemline should hit right above your knee or at the middle of your thigh. If you choose any shorter option, you will receive unwanted attention. Whether you wear jean shorts or lace shorts, heels or ballet flats, remember it’s all about proportions.
