The Long and the SHORT of it all

Shorts are making a comeback in a big way. More and more designers are discovering just how versatile they can be. They can take the place of a skirt in the summer as well as in the fall/winter when worn with tights. I know, I have to admit that the idea of wearing shorts to work is a little difficult to get used to for me too. I guess we can just think of them as short pants. As long as they are tailored then they should be fine for work. There are just a couple of things to remember when working shorts into your wardrobe making them your own. The first thing is to pair them with a more tailored style top whether it be a blouse or a tailored jacket. This will make you look more put together. The last thing you want to do is look like a little girl. You are a sophisticated woman! Also don't forget to wear great accessories. Like a super cool gold cuff, a bold ring and a great pair of high heel sandals or my favorite, because they look sexy and they are comfy, an ankle tie wedge espadrille. Hair should be super sophisticated. Last but not least, as you get older your shorts should get a little longer. Oh an a little self tanner never hurt anyone either;-)
These butterfly shorts from TopShop are so pretty! Anything with butterflies really makes me happy:-)

This is one of my favorite daytime short looks. I think I could handle wearing this to work. I would modify this look for myself by wearing a pair of shorts that are slightly longer.

I am kind of loving the idea of shorts with tights for fall;-)

Can you say cocktail party?? You have to admit this look is a little more unpredictable than the little black dress!
