How to style your shorts for every occasion

All week long we’ve been highlighting our favorite shorts for summer, including printed shorts and lengths to flatter every figure. Whether you’re headed to work or just hanging out for the weekend, here are some fresh ways to wear your shorts this summer.


Dressed up shorts

Take your shorts to work, shopping, or out to dinner by pairing them with sophisticated pieces. A blazer or pretty blouse tucked in or worn loosely lends a dressier edge up top. Heels or wedges complete the look and flatter legs.

Casual shorts

To keep your shorts casual, all you need is a simple tank, tee, or loose-fitting blouse and a pair of sandals or espadrilles. Stylish tops to pair with shorts for summer 2012 include chambray button downs, tie front tops, and slouchy tees that are partially tucked in.
