The cold weather is ruining my spring fashion buzz, leaving me a little less than inspired in coming up with new outfit ideas that I can actually wear right now.
So, instead, I’m featuring one of spring’s major fashion trends: tailored shorts. Bermuda shorts are hugely popular for spring, but you can also find plenty of mid-length shorts as well.
I’m a hesitant shorts fan. To wear shorts in an easy, breezy way for summer can sometimes be a little too casual for my tastes. Then, there’s the dreaded chub rub problem and riding up that shorts often seem to do.
That said, I love the idea of tailored shorts for a slightly dressier look during the spring and summer. My favorite way to wear shorts is for evening. I love wearing shorts in dressier fabrics (silk, lace, leather) with heels for a summer evening out.
Below are my picks from the runway:
|Rachel Comey Spring 2013 look
|Emporio Armani Spring 2013 look
|Gianfranco Ferré Spring 2013 look
|Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 look
|Nicole Miller Spring 2013 look
More attainable options:
|LOFT printed walking shorts|
|The Limited denim metro shorts|
|Forever 21 shorts|
