How to rock short shorts


Denim shorts seem to not be the easiest look to pull off style wise- living in Southern California I see a mess of horribly wrong jean shorts looks on a daily basis. So here’s my little guide on how to rock denim shorts while still looking stylish and chic. I think showing skin should always be a balance. If you’re wearing really short shorts, pair it with a high neck- even if it’s just a tee- because that helps make sure you won’t veer on the edge of trashy. Ripped shorts are also a very casual look so it’s great to pair it with something a little more chic and classic like stripes. (I guess you could say I’m on a little of a striped kick.)
Note: A vintage belt goes a long way in giving a look that extra flare.
And about the shoes- unless you’re literally going to the beach and the beach only don’t wear flip flops, or heels with denim shorts. Find a cool pair of booties, or espadrilles, or lace up gladiators. It can make all the difference!

    Nicely spoken. The essence of showing skin to a minimum and with class is the epitom of style that never fades … Only more respectable views earned. :)
