Stylish Summer Shorts

Short and Sweet

Shorts are often relegated to the realm of comfort and convenience – a must on the hottest of summer days. But wearing shorts doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style. Shorts are versatile and fashionable and can be dressed up or dressed down, mixed and matched with an array of different tops and accessories. When it comes to shorts, ensemble options are never in short supply. Whatever look you’re going for, don’t be afraid to work shorts into your wardrobe rotation. After all, life is short.

Here are some stylish shorts from local boutiques.

“One statement we hear year after year is, ‘I’m too old to wear shorts.’ Ladies, we are here to tell you that you can rock shorts at any age! Longer inseam shorts in every fabric and style – like our Miranda Belted Short – are trending this year, making it easy for everyone to find a pair they can feel comfortable in.”
