It’s short shorts weather. One of my favorite things about the warmer weather is wearing shorts all summer long. When you think of summer you think of warm weather and exchanging your bulking sweaters for summer dresses. You also think about pulling out your shorts from the back of your closet –finally!  Summer shorts don’t have to be basic –you can really have fun with an updated shorts collection this year. I’ve put together a list of the trendiest shorts, each one a classic enough to bring you into next summer season yet cool enough to be this year’s hottest trend.

One of my favorite things about summer shorts is that they are no longer just a casual piece in your wardrobe. Now shorts are used for dressy occasions. Plus, it’s fun to mix and match statement blouses, anything ruffles or fringe, or embroidered details with all types of shorts. Let your imagination run free and let your legs feel the summer sun in this season’s stylish shorts.

Seriously, the sexiest shorts ever, I’m totally in love with lace shorts. While I frequently wear denim cut-offs, when I want to feel fancy, but don’t want to wear a dress or skirt, I reach for my lace shorts. Pair with a simple cami or t-shirt and wedges and you’ve got a simple outfit that speaks volumes. Lace shorts flatter anyone and look incredible in any shade.

Paperbag Waist Shorts

The paper bag waist shorts are must have summer shorts. What makes them so popular is that they work for all figures, plus are stunning in an array of colors. For a summer picnic, go for darker colors to avoid grass and mud stains. For a summer party, pick pastels and vibrant prints to really stand out. Paperbag waist shorts are versatile, too, so enjoy experimenting with them.

Denim Shorts

No other summer shorts are more classic than denim shorts. They can be dressed up with heels and a boho blouse or super casual with a t-shirt and sneakers. I love cut-offs because they add a little edge to my summer outfits. Distressed denim is also a good choice for your stylish summer shorts collection.

Silk Shorts

Like lace shorts, silk shorts are for the girl who wants to get a little fancy, but not commits to a skirt or a dress. Additionally, silk shorts are vintage and beckon the soul of the 90s. Pair with a silk button-down blouse in the same color and whatever shoes feel good for you or mix with a chiffon off the shoulder top to make the look extra romantic.

Floral Shorts

Floral shorts are for the feminine vixen. What’s really great about floral shorts is that you can choose any length and they look remarkable. Plus, you can make a statement by selecting a large bold floral print or dainty little floral bud designs. Keep the rest of your ensemble simple because floral shorts are the highlighted item.
