how to do denim shorts...

The warm weather is almost upon us (sorta...) and that means it's time to pull out the shorts...sigh...here's how we'd do denim shorts if we absolutely had to...

Stay away from the Daisy Duke/Ellie Mae look...however, if you choose to do cut offs then don't allow your pockets to hang out of the bottom...cut offs are even more casual than plain 'ol shorts which makes them acceptable for beach and other uber dressed down locales...Go for a medium to dark wash and roll the semi frayed hem for a modern, undone yet not too trashy look

For all shorts, say NO to heels, for crying out loud, but YES to a wedge or platform sandals if you must have height...otherwise, a leather flip or interesting flat sandal is most appropriate...
The waist (or rise) should hit you right at yours - high waisted is a little too campy for our taste and low rise is to be avoided at all costs...

Give yourself a softer touch up top with a feminine tank then punch the whole shebang up with some colorful bracelets from Kate Spade or a fun necklace from Betsy Johnson (both are brands we love for their fun sense of style)...
