Styling shorts can be tricky. I was actually anti-shorts until a couple years ago. Maybe the heat finally got to me, or I saw all the cute possibilities. For me the key is that you need to make the proportions work. So if you’re wearing short shorts then make your top a long sleeve like this one from Free People. Bare your legs or your arms, not both! (Unless it’s over 100 degrees — then all bets are off.)
This day to night top comes in all these colors…
This shirt is perfect for work and play. While I styled it on this day with shorts for a meeting, I might pair it with skinny cropped pants or tucked into wide leg denim for a 70s inspired look. You’ll definitely be seeing it this fall so get ahead of the trend and wear it now!
