5 Ways to Wear Shorts

May 23, 2013

Even die-hard denim fans will want to swap their skinny jeans for shorts when it starts to get really hot this summer. But it's not always the most easy to style item of clothing in your summer closet. How to style this staple summer fashion essential and still stay comfortable and cool? We show you 5 chic ways to wear shorts - from denim to nautical to tailored options when you want to look a little bit dressed up! 

PATTERNED 

Make patterned shorts really pop with a simple tank top or t-shirt and sleek and simple sandals (nothing too busy or embellished). Keep the shape of the shorts a bit looser and more comfortable - think slouchy rather than form-fitting. This gives the entire look a more casual air rather than dressed up. Add a bright pop of neon with an accessory or paint your nails fluoro to keep the look super fun!

OVERALLS

Style setters and celebrites have been papped everywhere rocking overall shorts. This is a super cute look that if teamed with the right top and shoes, can look very stylish without looking like you've tried too hard. Just throw any t-shirt or baggy vest underneath for a casual day outfit and pair with flat sandals or your favorite sneakers.

TOUGH LUXE

Proving that a denim shirt goes with everything, we totally love this tough girl look. Look for a pair of black denim shorts with studs or rips and pair them with a casual denim shirt tied at the waist and some ankle boots. Look for shorts with a big of room - any ripped black denim cutoffs look great and you can even raid the arts and crafts store and glue on your own studs!

PREPPY

We're totally in love with these green tailored shorts for the summer months. A slightly thicker fabric looks smarter and a bit dressed up and when paired with a white button-up shirt it's such a sleek and stylish look that you can be confident with wearing anywhere! This outfit would look great worn with some flat lace-up brogue shoes to add a touch of tomboyish style

@rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.

Usually I wouldn't come here for advice, but I am really needing it. To sum it up, my birthday is in 21 days. Not only will I be leaving KW, but home as well. My mother has made it to where I have had plans to leave since I was around 11 or 12; so about 7 to 8 years. I won't get into everything, but we'll just say that my mother and I do not have a good relationship at all. My father on the other hand, I am very attached too and always scared of upsetting him. Things are not always very good between us at times, but we rarely fight. When we do, it is always bad nor ends well. So, having plans to move out are very scary to me and causes me plenty of anxiety that fights are going to break out when I have my help to get my belongings out.   For the record, I have talked to my father about leaving, why I want too, etc. But, more in the sense of that I want too, not that I am. Which, in a way, my parents understand I'm moving out as well as already pretty much know where I'm going without my mention. But, I don't think they, my father especially, understands how soon that is despite my saying of I want too when I'm 18 or when I say, "Soon." It doesn't help that my father told another that his "little girl is growing up" on him and that he is scared of the day I go because he will be alone. Which makes me feel guilty despite the fact I won't even be that far away. How should I talk to him once more and go about this or even when? I really want him to understand that I have thought everything through and that I will be in safe hands.
