we wear short shorts!

Saturday, April 10, 2010

It feels so good to say that it is "shorts season"!  We are Georgia Peaches and we don't like the cold or rain and we have had our fill this past winter!
 There are so many short options out there and so many ways to wear them.  It can be quite overwhelming:  always wanting to avoid the Daisy Dukes look  but never settling for the dreaded flare jean capri that is so popular in the masses.  Its a slippery slope but we are here to make sure you don't slip!

New to this season: the boyfriend short
We are loving this one: comfortable and an effortless casual look that can be dressed up if needed!

Patchwork Jean Cut offs $59.50

Dressed Up...

Pair it with a great wedge and a loose sequin top and some great bracelets and you have a look that works for dinner and a movie.  You can also try a pair of ballet flats or gladiator sandals and a tank and cardigan for a great weekend look.

The classic: flat front short
This is one of those staple pieces that every gal needs in her closet.  The flat front look tends to be more flattering and slimming. Who doesn't want that???  From chino to linen and high-waisted to low rise there are so many varieties!  Here are some of our favorites:

Old Navy Tab Waisted Linen Blend Shorts $22.50

Alice and Olivia High Waisted Pinstripe Shorts $59.90

Milly Shorts $195.00

The trendsetter: silk short
A silk short is what we would recommend for all of you fashion forward gals.  For most of us, this short is not practical for every day life but would be great for a night out instead of just your same ol' jeans. 

Silk Shorts with Cuff in Black Feather $110.00

Forever 21 Silk Woven Shorts $22.80

We LOVE Kate Bosworth's version of this!

The classic alternative: the pleated short
We are really loving this look but totally understand any apprehension you may have wearing this... pleats add volume right???  Well, one quick tip:  if this is not an area that you would want to widen then stay away.  However, if you balance this proportion correctly it will be a flawless look that will allow you to stand out from everyone else!  Here are some who have done it right:

There is not much that Kate Moss does that we do NOT like... love her!!

LC's spin on it.  Because of the length of the short she was able to pair it with a more voluminous top.

Mossimo Black: Women's Pleated short $17.99

Free People Slinky Pleated Shorts $88.00

If black off shoulder dress keeps women a sense of mystery.Then chiffon shift dress shows the neat and pure of a girl.
