Just because summer’s end is rapidly approaching doesn’t mean that you have to bury your shorts in a drawer for the next few months! Tailored shorts are a great way to keep wearing your favorite warm-weather trend well into the crisp autumn season (we’re all about the summer-to-fall transition outfit!). Shorts don’t have to be uber casual either. If they’re tailored correctly and styled with an oxford shirt, V-neck sweater, or even a cardigan layered over a T-shirt, you can carry a great shorts look from morning to night. For shoes, think two-tone loafers, silver brogues, or hightops. It’s a weekend look we’re crazy about!
To update your fall wardrobe, there is endless inspiration to be drawn from the resort 2015 presentations. First up is Adam Lippes, whose oversize red shorts are far from sloppy and casual. In a crisp cotton with a large cuff, these shorts are effortlessly chic. Jill Stuart’s collection was chock-full of shorts, all sharing a perfect high waist and tie belt. By tucking in a blouse, this elegant silhouette minimizes your waistline and elongates your legs (and who doesn’t want that!). Last but not least, Gucci paired bright shorts with a layered top and loafers. This sophisticated, tailored look may even make you forget about your well-loved denim cutoffs from summer.
