Pick Shoes That Work With Shorts
“Don’t wear them with stilettos or flip-flops. Do pair them with a pair of booties.”—A.P.
Mix Up Your Shorts Styles
“Don’t be scared to play around with lengths and washes. You’d be surprised to see what works and how much a short can change an outfit.”—T.H.
Become Comfortable Wearing Shorts
“You just have to find the right pair. Once you do, you’ll have them forever. I would start with a very basic, relaxed, mid-rise fit. Get out of the mindset that they are just for young girls who are wearing crop tops and going to music festivals. Get a second opinion if you aren’t sure. Whether that be from a sales associate, or husband, or close friend, it’s always nice to have that reassurance.”—A.P.
Ease Shorts Into Your Wardrobe
“Wear them for the first time with a group you’re comfortable with! It’s fun to branch out. Try it out with an easy baseball tee for a more relaxed weekend feel. It gets so hot in our summer months, and if you switch up your outfit with cutoffs, you’ll be much better off than being miserable.”—T.H.
Don’t Be Afraid to Go Formal With Shorts
“Dress it up for a dinner date with something a bit more feminine to offset the casual vibe.”—T.H.
