Trend to Try: High Waisted Utility Shorts

Each season has it’s own trends that come and then go by the end of the season.  One of my favorite trends of this summer are high waisted shorts!

What I love about this style of shorts is that you can dress them up or down.  They look great with flip flops or heels!  I paired mine with a blazer and wedges but they could easily be worn with just the tank and flats.  (especially if you have shapely legs that aren’t in desperate need of some lunges-lol) These shorts are super comfortable and actually quite flattering.  Forget muffin tops-they are totally hidden since the focal point of the shorts is on the waist that is hidden by the tie and cinched waistband!

Plus, they are a great alternative to skirts.  I just don’t wear short skirts but this style of shorts is a safer way to pull off the look of a skirt. They are wind proof and you don’t have to worry when sitting down!

A few tips for wearing these shorts are to pair them with a tight top that you tuck completely in.  Also, size up.  These shorts are meant to be loose with a tie to cinch up the waist.  You want these loose around your legs.

My exact shorts are HERE.  I’m wearing a large.  (I typically wear a 10 in Old Navy pants and a 31-32 in designer jeans.)  The elastic gives quite a bit so they are forgiving.  I also like the length of these shorts.  I am 5’8 so these shorts are on the longer side.  You can find them on Amazon and they are only $14.  I’m very happy with them and have no problem not spending much money on a trend that will be done by the end of the season.

These shorts are wearable without feeling too exposed or even too trendy!  So have I convinced you you need a pair?!  Below I’ve rounded up lots of short options!  Just click on the pic to go to the item.
