STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Show Good Taste with A High Waist

Let’s pretend Spring and Summer are around the corner. Stop shivering and picture it with me. Before you reach for your typical skirt and belt duo, consider shopping for some high-waisted shorts. They’re like skirts, but better.

High-waisted shorts are a great way to add some variety to your Spring wardrobe. They look absolutely adorable with flowy tops and cropped shirts, and they’re trendier than regular shorts. This week’s Fashionista tucked a cute lace top into her khaki shorts. Definitely a perfect choice, since black and khaki look great together. Notice how she alternates the two colors? It really helps solidify her outfit and create cohesion.

I love how she wore a fedora to break up the potential monotony of her outfit. If you’re going to sport the high-waisted short, try following her lead and add either some chunky jewelry or a cool hat.

Whether you’re going to an internship, class or elsewhere, give high-waisted shorts a try. For a more formal occasion, try silk or rayon shorts and feel free to experiment with simple patterns (polka dots, geometric shapes, etc.). These Urban Outfitters shorts are classic, chic, and would look great with a blouse tucked into them. If you’re not into chunky jewelry, put on a headband for a more sophisticated look à la Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. Wear strappy wedges or booties to complete the outfit.

For something more casual and everyday, try these denim shorts by sass & bide from Shopbop. They would look so adorable with a flowy top and a turquoise or coral necklace. If you’re into more distressed-looking shorts, check out vintage stores or Urban Outfitters one-of-a-kind cutoff shorts. For shoes, try slipping on some gladiator sandals for an edgier look.
