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 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.
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.
