With the end of summer in sight I feel like I owe a shout out to the high waisted shorts that have made an appearance this year. They can look good or bad real quick and I find myself thinking the “mom jean” look isn’t so bad. Am I going crazy? Here are a few tips to help you style your last minute short purchase (in a good way)!
{Black and White}
A good hint for pieces that are more risky is to keep it neutral. Because these shorts are in black and paired with white and nude accessories the look feels more polished and classy. Its an attention grabber, but in a good way.

{Around the City}
Keep this look fresh by wearing a loose patterned button up and a light jacket that comes down past your shorts. Pair it with some strappy sandals and you are set.

Wear to Work
For a look that is appropriate for (some) work environments choose a longer trouser short that is less form fitting. Dress it up by wearing a blazer or a tailored jacket. Peep toe platforms polish this look off.

For a simple casual look the jean short works best. Pair it with a striped tank and basic accessories. This look is all about letting the shorts do the talking.
So, what do you think? Would you dare to wear high waisted shorts?
