How To Dress Up Shorts For Summer
With summer officially arriving in just a few days, shorts are becoming one of our best go-to bottoms. I personally wear a lot of shorts this time of the year. I think they just take the place of my everyday jeans which I live in the rest of the year.
Most of us think of shorts for casual looks, and that is perfectly fine. However, today I am showing you how easy it is to dress up your shorts for special outings. All you have to do is add a lightweight jacket, kimono or cardigan, some heels and a few accessories to take you casual shorts look to another level.
As a base outfit, I have started off with my dark denim wash shorts (which used to be jeans that I cut off myself) and our Ivory V neck Short Sleeve Top. For the first look I am wearing our brand-new Blue Leopard Border Print Kimono, as my light weight jacket.
The blue color combo for this leopard print is such a fun way to do leopard for summer. It also has a small geometric border print in the bottom and the sides. The fabric is a really nice quality rayon. The body is loose with kimono style sleeves and a small ruffle detail in the bottom of the sleeves.
This leopard Kimono also has a matching small neck tie to go with it. You can use it as a neck tie like I have done for today or you can even use it as a tie around your pony tail for your hair.
For today’s second look, I am wearing our Blue Tropical Print Tie Front Kimono Jacket, which I first styled for you here.
The fabric for this piece is a soft 100% rayon that is printed in a pretty tropical leaf print in shades of blue and turquoise with a touch of lilac. It’s an easy body to wear with kimono style sleeves and a tie in the front that you can wear a few different ways.
For today’s look I have shown you how you can tie this piece in the front or warp it around and tie it in the back.
For accessories I am wearing our Gold Hoop Earrings with One Teardrop Rhinestone and Gold Sea foam Cream Three Piece Bracelet Set.
