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.
