First let me start by saying that I am not a shorts person. I don’t like them. I have chubby, stubby legs and I don’t like showing too much of them. I don’t think they look good on me. I have 1 pair of khaki shorts (for when it’s super hot in the summer) and 1 pair of black bermuda short and I hardly ever wear either.
But when I was invited to join the Thrift Style Thursday linkup by Zhenya and Martyna, I couldn’t say no. Plus, I really wanted to think outside of my fashion comfort zone and try something new.
So, there’s the result…how to style shorts for fall. Here’s the fashion formula I was going for. I think this look can really work for any body style and budget. Curvy gals like me shouldn’t necessarily avoid shorts.
1. black or dark colored shorts +
2. Tights or fishnets (for added warmth) +
3. Loose blouse +
4. Jacket or blazer +
5. Heels or a pair of comfy booties (here I show you both, but I only wore the booties to work)
= Super cute chic look for fall (for the office, school, dinner, etc)
What do you think of this look? I hope you like it and I’d love to see my readers’ takes on wearing shorts for fall. Please share!
