There’s no shortage of style this summer! As temperatures heat up, so does style with bright summer colors for summer picnics, barbecues, vacations and more. The past few years we’ve seen the maxi dress take center stage for summer style. But this year I’m shopping for a great pair of shorts. shorts, which are a lifelong wardrobe staple, can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. We all have our favorite pair of “Saturday” shorts – relaxed, worn, reliable. I’ve had the same pair for years and I love them. But this summer try a pair of upscale summer shorts with a cropped blazer for a summer wedding or summer soiree. And of course, go bold with bright summer colors for a Fourth of July party, backyard barbecue and more! To pull off the perfect shorts ensemble, be mindful of the length. Choose from short to knee length for the style that is the most flattering on your body and most appropriate for the occasion.
