When I was in my twenties, the number one fashion staple in my wardrobe were summer shorts. They were those sexy shorts, mostly short-shorts, although some were high-waisted. But my favorite pair were denim shorts. I still have my most favorite pair of denim shorts, and I still enjoy wearing it.
Suffice it to say … I love wearing shorts. However, as I was approaching middle thirties, something in me shifted. I no longer felt good in those sexy shorts. I still had the legs. My weight was still the same even if I was already a mom at that point. So the shorts still fitted me just fine, but I wasn´t the same me in those shorts anymore. I have many pairs of those sexy, cute shorts and some were really precious I haven´t even worn them yet, waiting for that perfect ocassion.
However, the appearance of some spider veins after pregnancy has contributed to my lower confidence when it comes to my legs. My taste and style have also changed. Now, I`m more into comfortable and more matured styles of shorts.
Here are some shorts that I`m currently loving for summer.
1. Carmen Print Short With Tie Waist
I have this style of shorts, only in ivory white. It´s super comfy, chic, and elegant. You can wear it with a crop top or a fitted top worn tuck in, and then finished with flipflops for a casual day or dress them up with some espadrille.
2. Coretta Printed Fluid Short
If you´re looking for shorts for an effortless summer look, the coretta printed shorts are a great pair to start. They can be worn with a simple white camisole or button-down shirts, pulled together with some sexy sandals of comfy flats. But given its silhouette, hugging the waist and fitting loosely around the thighs, if may not flatter a figure with a flat bum.
3. Fluid Short Multi Print
This is the striped version of the Correta shorts in #2. The playful stripes are so perfect for summer and they look great when worn with a simple white tee. The vertical stripes and high-waisted style of the shorts will flatter a figure with long torso.
4. Lydia Print Linen Shorts
A comfortable, walking shorts made in linen, this makes summer styling so fun and easy. This style of shorts was my favorite when I was younger. It´s all about going leggy, and feeling confident in your casual summer style.
5. Cruise Mid Length Chino Shorts – Red
Shorts that sit aounr mid-thigh has a luxe appeal in them. It´s like the shorts that many wealthy and/or professionals prefer for their casual summer wear. Why not? Worn with a simply t-shirt, your casual summer look is still elegant.
6. Cruise Mid Length Chino Shorts – French Navy
There´s no wonder why these chinos are poopular, they´re totally chic. Wheather it´s for cruising or jetsetting, this pair of shorts will keep your look classy, specially when worn with some designer sneakers.
7. Clarina Casual Pull On Short
With my current preference for khaki and comfy, this pair of casual pull on shorts will definitely make it to my summer wardrobe. I´d love to wear it while hanging our with by boy in the garden or going for a hike with him in the nearby woods.
What do you think of these summer shorts? Which style are you when it comes to shorts?
