3 STYLE TIPS WHEN WEARING SHORTS OVER 40:

1

CHOOSE SHORTS THAT ARE HIGH-WAISTED WITH A SLIGHTLY LONGER HEM LINE:

These Agolde Dee shorts are seriously the BEST FITTING SHORTS I’ve ever owned! They are high-waisted with a slightly longer hem line so they make your legs look miles long. These shorts come in 3 washes (I actually own all 3 washes, they’re seriously that good). I find they run true to size and I’m wearing a 25 for size reference.

ACCESSORIES ARE KEY:

Accessories are often under utilized, so always be sure not to skip the accessories, especially when wearing shorts! I personally think layered necklaces are always a good idea, and if you look at almost any of my styled looks, you will see exactly that. I love this herringbone necklace from Nordstrom because it’s chic and stylish , it adds to the overall aesthetic of the look AND it’s under $100!

GOLD ANKLET:

An anklet is my favorite accessory to wear in the summertime, especially with shorts since you can actually see it! As soon as I saw this layered one from Nordstrom, it was definitely coming home with me. I love how fine and delicate the design is and with a price tag of $60 this is very high value item.

SHOP NOW

Gold Aviators:

If you’ve followed me for any length of time you will know that I love my sunnies! I literally wear these aviator sunglasses with everything and I have them in multiple lens shades and frame colors. I particularly love the soft touch of class the gold frames with the soft gray lenses add to this look.

ALWAYS ADD A THIRD LAYER:

My 3rd style tip for how to style shorts over 40 is to wear a blazer with your shorts! It’s a sure-fire way to elevate the look and it fits within my style formula of always adding a 3rd layer. This black blazer is very budget-friendly and the fit is amazing so it would be a great option to pull this look together.

SHOP NOW

CAMEL BLAZER FROM ABOVE:

Camel is the most luxurious color in my opinion and the color of this blazer is perfect! The length of the blazer is longer than the shorts, which I absolutely love and this actually elevates the look even more. This blazer is the perfect over-sized fit and is made of a linen blend so you won’t find yourself feeling too hot either! I’m wearing an XS in this beautiful piece.

SHOP NOW

WHITE BLAZER FROM ABOVE:

Another option for a 3rd layer is this gorgeous white linen blazer from Nordstrom. The material just screams summer to me and the light airy feel to it is simply heavenly. If you take away just one style tip from this post on how to style shorts over 40, let it be this one!

BEAUTY BONUS TIP:

Here’s my bonus beauty tip!
I always wear Charlotte Tilbury’s bronzing lotion every single time I wear shorts or a dress or skirt. It leaves my skin looking dewy, bronzed and glowy – whether I’ve been in the sun or not! 10/10 – HIGHLY recommend this lotion when styling shorts over 40, or really, for any age!
