Get Shorty

In our opinion, shorts are underrated. Often, they are seen as casual and at times, lazy.  Sure, shorts are easy and cozy, but they can be incredibly stylish. It really is the best of both worlds- comfy and fashionable. 

For a daytime look, here are some options:

For a nighttime look, shorts can be dressed up quite easily. Personally, we're loving leather shorts (P.S. the third option is a skort- aka a gal's gift from Heaven!). Here are more options:

Below are some ideas of what to pair shorts with. High waisted shorts can be a fun look with a super cute crop top. Also, if done correctly, mixing patterns can be a great fashion statement.

Sunglasses Spotlight

Sunglasses are an absolute necessity for the hot summer months and serve as the perfect finishing piece to an outfit. From geek chic wayfarers to a bold cat eye, nothing quite completes an outfit like trendy eye-wear. We put together a selection of summer's hottest sunglasses, inspired by the designer sunnies worn on the runway in NYFW.

For a few tips on styling outfits with sunglasses, keep in mind the shape and color. Round glasses or thick frames add an edgy, eccentric look, perfect for a bold outfit. Aviators go extremely well with casual dress, kept simple and classic. Wayfarers are a distinct trademark of the geek chic look, and cat eyes offer timeless sophistication. Keep in mind your face shape while shopping for sunglasses for glasses that best flatter you!
