In Dallas where I live it gets really hot in the summertime, I mean REALLY HOT! Consequently, shorts are part of my regular summer wardrobe since some days because of the heat, I can’t fathom putting on a pair of jeans. If I’m being honest, I don’t feel that polished or put together when I have on shorts unless I follow the 5 simple rules I’ve listed below and talked about on my YouTube channel. If you’re like me and want to wear shorts this summer yet still look chic, stylish, and even a bit younger, then make sure to check out these 5 easy style tips so the next time you throw on a pair of shorts you’ll undoubtedly look AMAZING!

5 STYLE TIPS WHEN WEARING SHORTS:
1.) PAY ATTENTION TO BALANCE:
Since you will be showing off your legs it’s important to cover the upper portion of your body by wearing an over-sized top with sleeves or a jacket of some sort. This will create a look that is balanced meaning only one part of your body is showing ie your legs in this case creating a look that’s not only polished and put together but a look that is age-appropriate.
2.) WHEN IN DOUBT SIZE UP:
There is nothing worse than wearing a pair of shorts that are too short or too tight! In fact, this might just be my biggest pet peeve in the fashion world. To ensure this NEVER happens always opt for one size up from your regular size. For example, I’m typically a size 25 in jeans so in denim shorts I almost always size up to a size 26.
3.) ADD A THIRD LAYER:
Going back to style tip #1, adding a third layer will allow you to balance your look when wearing shorts. I think there is nothing chicer than layering an over-sized blazer or cardigan over a simple white tee and denim shorts as I’ve done in today’s look. This is an outfit I would wear on a date night or fun girl’s night and if I were to wear it during the day, for example, I would just swap out the heels for some fabulous sneakers.
4.) PAIR WITH FLATS OR A LOW HEEL:
If you wear shorts with heels that are too high (3.5 inches or above) you risk end up looking like your trying too hard. Instead, opt for a sleek low heel, a metallic slide, or comfortable platform sneaker.
5.) USE THE CHARLOTTE TILBURY BRONZING LOTION:
If I had to pick to one beauty product I couldn’t live without it would no doubt be Charlotte Tilbury’s bronzing lotion. It will make your legs look, tanner, slimmer, and give them the perfect summer glow that is essential when wearing shorts or a skirt, especially in the summertime.
