Warmer weather is here, which means the short denim shorts are coming out to play. I love short denim shorts, but I also love keeping my fashion classy. Sometimes, those two things don't go hand in hand very easily. Here are some tips to make sure you can wear your favorite pair of short denim shorts and still dress with class.
Wear a loose-fitting top. Nothing screams hoochy quite like short denim shorts and a tight top. Combat the hoochy feel by pairing a flowy, loose-fitting top with the shorts.
Wear booties. Tall boots can also give short denim shorts a not-so-classy vibe. Pairing a pair of shorts with booties gives off more of a sophisticated vibe and keeps you looking fresh and classy.
Wear an overshirt. To give your outfit more of a laid-back, care-free vibe, pair them with a tank or tee with an overshirt. I like wearing flannel overshirts, but it's totally up to you.
Try high-waisted shorts. I love low-rise denim shorts just as much as the next person, but I have found that high-waisted shorts gives off more a fashion-forward vibe -- just make sure they aren't too tight. You can pair the high-waisted shorts with a tucked-in top or flowy crop top.
Wear sneakers. This is one of the easiest tips. Just slip on a pair of fashionable sneakers, and they immediately give your short denim shorts more of a summer, laid-back feel.
