How To Wear Shorts: Inspiration Board + Link-Up

Happy Friday, everyone! Spring has officially sprung! And you know what that means- summer is just right around the corner. Even though it seems a little far off, fashion is always one step ahead. Now is the time to start forming your summer wardrobe! So today, we’re compiling a few favorites to form an outfit that demonstrates How To Wear Shorts: The Chic Way.
We’re going to do a more in-depth guide later as one of our style guide posts but here’s some major visual inspiration to get you all started!
Friday Favorites, 3/25

Look One is everything you would expect from a chic, classy shorts look. We have high-waisted trouser shorts paired with a simple black crop top and a classic white blazer. The blazer pulls it together nicely and makes the look undeniably elegant. The coral wristlet and the beige packpack are great accents that give the look a more youthful vibe. This look screams millennial!

Friday Favorites Look Two, 3/25

Look Two is a more casual summer shorts look that pairs brights and prints with classic minimalist pieces. It’s comfortable and chic with a little bit of summer flair. This look is the perfect example of how important it is to have staples in your wardrobe and just how elegant it can make a basic look.

Friday Favorites Look Three, 3/25

There’s nothing more elegant than classic neutral tones. Look Three is exactly that; sophistication! This look has a classic element of neutral hues with a posh silhouette, in addition to the trendy vibes of modern detailing like the sleeveless blazer and crop top. This look is my favorite of the collection!

    Usually if it's warm enough to wear shorts, I just have a sleeveless top on too! I love those gingham shorts! So cute!
