I am a dress girl-more specifically, a dress UP girl-through and through. My closet is full of more impractical dresses than one should own, however I always end up stumbling across another dress that makes my heart melt, and ends up coming home with it’s loving new owner. Being that I’m attracted to dresses like a magnet, I have made little room in my closet for shorts of any kind, besides a few workout shorts and comfy sweat ones for lounging. But this season has made me reconsider, as the styles of shorts that have come out over the past year are enough to make any dress girl swoon. Look at all of these sassy shorts…and the best part is, unlike some darn A-line dresses, you don’t need to worry about a little wind (which could potentially cause a Marilyn Monroe-esque moment!). Actually there’s another best part-these shorts can now be worn out as evening wear-in place of a great dress! Add some heels, lotion the legs, and you can dress up any pair of shorts! Check out all of these faaabulous short styles…
TOTALLY obsessed with these skirt looking shorts (…see what I mean about loving my dresses…my favorite shorts resemble a skirt!) Ok so I guess this is technically a skort, but it’s just amazing.
Love them so much I found 2 I’m obsessed with.
You’d have to rock these high waisted shorts with confidence, but with a tucked in simple tank I think they’d be adorable.
This little number would definitely not be an every day pair of shorts…but let’s be honest-none of these are. And please-with super short shorts, keep the shoes super flat!
OK ok I know-what on earth are these shorts doing, surrounded by frills, sequins, and hot pink? While it may appear this vanilla pair does not belong in all this fabulous-ness, I’m really loving the longer, dressy shorts paired with a fun bright colored sleeveless shirt, and the longer length makes it look more appropriate with heels than a super short pair. And the fun part-the more simple the shorts, the more you can do it up with fun accessories-bright colored top, lots of big jewelry, and beautiful sky high heels. Trust me!
great with a solid top and perfect with any shoes-flat or tall!
GAHHHH…words cannot describe. Saved the best for last. I know this is not my first mention of sequin shorts-but I can’t help myself. These would be SO.MUCH.FUN to wear out. To rock this bad boy you’d have to definitely keep the top, jewelry, and shoes as minimal and low key as possible. Let the shorts shine in all their sequined glory!
