Looks of the Week – Shorts Edition

Does anything scream warm weather quite like a pair of great fitting shorts? I didn’t wear shorts for YEARS and last Summer was the first time I picked up a pair since Junior High, and I already find myself excited to break them out again. So let’s get inspired by some of the great shorts looks that bloggers around the world – i.e. in warmer places than San Francisco – Have started putting together for Spring.


{Does it get more classic than denim shorts and a striped tee? The perfect casual warm weather look.}


{Wearing heels with shorts can be a challenge, you want the look to be chic not desperate. A pair of neutral hued heels is a great choice because it elongates the legs. Not sure how to make it work for you? This look from Donatila Rose is picture perfect – The ideal length shorts, a stylish, oversized top, and cute nude peep-toes. Perfect!}


{Is it still chilly where you live? Why not add some layers and some tights to make your shorts a little more palatable?}


{Are you an innovator? Why not try a fun new style pair of shorts like these yellow & white brocade peplum pair that Sincerely Jules makes look like Summer perfection? You can find a similar pair here from BCBGeneration.}


{For the girlie-girls and floral lovers out there this season will make all your dreams come true with beautiful, feminine pairs of floral shorts like this gorgeous pair from Late Afternoon.}


{Short-shorts can be a cute Summer look if done right. Not sure where to start? Yumi has the answer!}


{If you’re a fan of the throwback trend for overalls this Spring then you should try a pair of denim overall shorts – This look is a fun, stylish twist on this classic style. Great inspiration!}

Are you a fan of shorts once the weather warms up? Which of these looks is your favorite?

  3. Damn they’re good. I always to invest in a good pair of shorts which I can wear outdoor. Well, I’m very conscious about my embarassing legs! So, I prefer wearing shorts indoor at my house. But I think shorts are a great piece of clothing if worn and styled correctly! 🙂

  6. I’m not a shorts gal (I have a fierce set of soccer thighs, so outside the gym, shorts and my quads don’t mix) — but I love skirts and capris. Either way, though I can’t wait for it to warm up. Winter has stuck around waaaaay too long!
