Dressy Shorts for Summer

As a public service to my readers, I must inform you of a variety of fashion trends sweeping the country.  Therefore, I feel it my duty to submit an article that does just that-informs you of a fashion trend.  Pay no attention to the beautiful models as they are just showcasing the apparel.  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it !  Read on:

Dressy shorts. A contradiction in terms, right? However, I have seen them more and more in the last few years, and I must say, I’m a convert!

Previously, I always thought of shorts as casual, and I really only wore them with flip flops or Converse sneakers. However, dressy shorts worn out at night with heels can be such a cute look! I admit, I am not a skirt wearing person for the most part, so I guess they speak to me. They are short (like a skirt) but way, way more comfortable. And sexy!

They look great with a blouse, a blazer or a loose tank top. Heels are the way to go if it’s an evening out, but for a dressy lunch or day event, they are really cute with flats as well. I think they are a great option when you are not sure how dressy an event will be and you are torn between a dress and pants. Obviously, they are not appropriate for some events (a wedding is one that comes to mind) but for dinners out, drinks with friends, or a summer party, I think they are a great choice. I’m even seeing them on the red carpet! And for those of you who aren’t comfortable in shorts, just go a little longer. Knee length or almost-to-the-knee shorts are adorable with heels, and no different than a skirt – only cuter!
