Classy Ways to Look Cute in Shorts

If you want to wear shorts this summer, go right ahead. Shorts can look cute and classy especially if you keep your look classic. What do I mean? Here are a couple of examples:

Tailored Shorts

Crisp tailored shorts are a good starting point for a summer outfit that is fresh and chic. Pair them with a bright solid top in silky material – so much more classy than a cotton tee.

A Statement Bag

Add some fun by showing off your personality with an interesting bag. You can’t go wrong with metallic flats which work with anything and add a tinge of elegance.

Jewelry is Key

A great necklace, some bracelets..these all make a huge difference is you want to dress up your shorts look. Go for something bold, not wimpy and watch the compliments come rolling in.

Black and white combined always looks chic.

The Right Print 

If you want to wear a print, then stick to a classic pattern like polka dots or stripes. This outfit above has a crisp graphic look that is even more fabulous when you pair with a bright purse. Instant energy!

Rope Wedges

A little height in the way of a straw or rope wedge sandal gives your outfit a summery feel and elevates your look, quite literally!
