STYLE GURU STYLE: Summer Mid-Thigh Shorts

Hey, everyone! The summer season is an exciting time when it comes to new trends. Maria Cornejo is known for having an incredible bathing suit business. However, the Zero + Maria Cornejo 2016 resort runway show focused on different styles such as cropped mid-thigh shorts. For instance, one of the looks in the  Zero + Maria Cornejo line portrays a pair of striking black leather shorts paired with a solid maroon sleeveless shirt. The length of the shorts balances perfectly with the simple tucked in shirt. Finally, a simple gold cuff was used to complete this bold look.

Since I found this trend so inspiring, I decided to make it my own. Here, I took a pair of black mid-thigh shorts and paired it with a patterned tank top. In this case I chose to wear a black and white tank top instead of finding a maroon solid fabric. The sleeveless cut of my shirt, however, provides the same effect that is seen in the Zero + Maria Cornejo look. I then added a silver and gold cuff that is similar to the one that was seen on the resort 2016 runway. To complete my look, I decided to wear black Steve Madden shoes and a small black and white cross-body bag.

Get My Look: 1. Black mid-thigh shorts. 2. A matching tank top. 3. A cuff bracelet.
