STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Who Wears Short Shorts?

Style Advice of the Week

Once the summer sun makes its big debut the temperatures get hotter and the shorts get shorter. However, it’s important to remember that shorter isn’t always better in terms of summer shorts. It’s crucial to create the proper balance of flirty and feminine, yet still maintain a classy appeal. Always opt for classy ladies, never trashy.

This week’s Fashionista created an optimal balance between her shorts and her skin by sporting a pair of denim shorts by Free People that were just the right length. She added a little bit of spice to her simple button-down with her cheetah print sandals and neon statement necklace— so chic. This Fashionista was ready for the day in this versatile outfit. I think the most important question to ask yourself when purchasing a pair of shorts is: Is this appropriate in all situations? Of course there are exceptions to every rule, however, if your shorts are not appropriate in length 90 percent of the time, you should probably rethink them. We are all guilty of gawking at someone wearing shorts that are too short— trust me ladies, you don’t want to be that girl.

A classy pair of denim shorts can be worn on countless occasions and they are definitely a purchase that you will not regret. Everyone needs a go-to pair of shorts and a pair that is longer in length is always a safe bet. Whether you are attending a concert, festival with friends or meeting your boyfriend’s grandparents, modesty is definitely the way to go.

Check out J.Crew for a pair of fabulously flattering shorts that are suitable for all occasions, or even American Apparel for shorter, yet still appropriate length of shorts. So remember ladies, leave the short shorts at home this summer!
