The Long And Short Of Summer Shorts

Do You  Hesitate About Wearing Shorts?

Here’s the thing: Many ladies of a certain age exclaim, “I can’t wear shorts!”  My question is, “Why not?”  They’re comfortable, and cool. If you are wearing a walking short, it is basically the same length as your summer skirt. So, the issue is not the shorts; it’s how you’re styling them. Styling them as a woman not a teenager requires a bit more thought than merely throwing on any top and a bottom. Now, let’s take a look at how I recently styled the same pair and top two different ways.

 

 

 

 

First Look:

First and foremost to start styling this outfit, I selected a neutral colored pair Bermuda walking shorts and a print cotton swing top. Then by adding the navy espadrilles and bright yellow tote, the floral print of top is highlighted. Accordingly, while wearing this outfit I feel cool, comfortable and I’m ready to take on my day.

Second Look:

Next, to change up the look to a more casual one, simply roll the leg into a cuff. Ultimately,  cuffing the leg makes it slightly shorter and narrower. Simply, by tucking the top in and adding a red belt to accent the red floral in the print we have a new look.  Finally, changing from the espadrilles to a canvas boat shoe, it’s a different more casual look.

Meanwhile, while relaxing or working at home, I am cool and comfortable wearing my basic summer shorts.

Are shorts a part of your summer wardrobe? How do feel about wearing them?  Ofcourse, we are all different, you can drop me a note in the comment section below and share your thoughts. I always love hearing from you.

  1. Cute looks! I usually just wear skirts in the summer but just bought a longer pair of shorts and am loving them! I’ll be styling them on my blog because I think you hit the nail on the head that many women don’t like wearing them and need to see it’s an option. Take care! Julia from whenthegirlsrule.com

  2. I’m 54 and I still wear shorts and I always will. I have a pair of white bermudas that I just love, but I will also wear short shorts. Love your outfit, it’s definitely something I would wear, especially the first way you styled it.

    1. Hi Miri,

      With shorts it’s all about the length that’s right for our personal body type.
      I hope you find a pair that fits your comfort and style. It’s fun to try on new ideas.

  3. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Short in the length of yours are great. I don’t like the shorter ones unless I can wear tights underneath. You look awesome in the way you styled the shorts look!
