Yes, summer is coming to a close, but as we New Englanders know, warm temperatures don’t end drastically, so don’t pack those shorts away yet! What I have enjoyed this year is wearing shorts in the evening, out to dinner, or getting together with friends….fun to wear with a higher heel! It is a more relaxed alternative to wearing a short skirt, more current than a ‘sundress’, sexier than a maxi dress……and works for all ages if you are careful about shoe and top choice.
– If you are wearing short shorts, balance your outfit by being more covered up on top; a thin sweater or blazer, a loose silky blouse.
– Choose the length of the shorts based on what flatters your body.
– Wedges are a great choice, especially with shorter shorts. Natural colors will make your legs look longer.
– Be sure fit is not too tight (top or bottom!) to avoid a trashy look.
Once the air turns cooler, my cotton shorts will be packed away, but there are some heavier weight shorts for fall that will look great with tights and boots…..will be a nice alternative to jeans…..would you wear shorts after dark?
