The High-Waisted Shorts Trend

27 Jul

High-waisted shorts are bigger than ever, and they’re not going away come fall. Paired with tights, they are the perfect replacement for a skirt (especially on a windy day). As most have waistline detailing, it’s important to wear a shirt tucked in so as not to create bulk but instead accentuate curves. If you tend to be biggest in the middle, opt for a pair without any detailing (bow, pleats, ties, etc) in the very front.

Here are seven great styles for summer into fall…

Gestuz High Waisted Turn-Up Shorts, $42 at ASOS

Summer Dressing

Today is officially the first day of summer, which I cannot be happier about. The longer days keeps me out longer, which makes for more vibrant memories and less time in front of the tube. One thing I especially love about summer is the influx of fun jewelry, like this gorgeous silver necklace from Lee Angel which adds flare to any basic outfit.
