STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Casually High-Waisted

High-waisted shorts are such a hot item to have for this summer! They are such an essential, versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. You can dress them up or down for any occasion you attend, whether your shorts are denim, a print or just a simple, solid color. Shorts make me feel free, they keep me cool during the hot summer days and the high-waisted cut adds a dash of sass to any outfit. How many of you Fashionistas will be racking up on high-waisted shorts? I know I will! I actually just bought two pairs.

High-waisted shorts made their first appearance as a fashion trend in the ’40s and have made their way back in the fashion cycle. They come up to the hip bone for coverage at the top, while still being short enough to show off those beautiful legs. High-waisted shorts also come in many different fabrics, from loose-fitting polyester to slim fitting denim. There have been many new styles of these shorts, including new textures and patterns, so you have a variety to choose from.

How do you put together an outfit with high-waisted shorts? Let’s start with the shorts. This Fashionista decided to choose a light denim pair of high-waisted shorts for her look. She kept it very simple by adding a white button-up collared crop top. Adding a pair of sneakers or Converse makes this outfit very casual for an effortless, everyday wear.
