In summer, shorts are the go-to piece in your wardrobe. Pairing them with wedges, flats and sandals is as easy as 1, 2, 3. But soon the weather gets cooler and you have to pack them away until next year…right? No way! Leave those shorts right where there are and get ready to vamp up your fall wardrobe with a few tricks.
Here is how to wear shorts in the fall in 3 simple ways:
1) Pair them with tights: Tights are fall’s best accessory. You can wear them under everything, stay warm AND wear fun patterns and colors to spice up your outfit. Put a fun pair on under your shorts and go from summer to fall in a flash.
2) Blazer/Jacket: Not only is the blazer having a real moment this fall, it’s also a perfect way to dress up a pair of shorts. In summer you might have worn them to the beach or to an oh-so-hot night out. In fall, you can just slip them on with a blazer (think tuxedo jacket or even denim jacket) and be ready for the runway.
3) Boots/heels: The thing about shorts is that they encourage everyone to stare at your gams. Why not keep the trend going with a great shoe? Fall is the perfect time to wear a great jewel tone heel, boot or bootie and with just the right shoe, your legs will go on for days. That’s one fall trend many people will want to follow. Trust us.
