A Dressed-Up Outfit with Shorts? Yes it's Possible!


Full disclosure: I am not the biggest fan of shorts. Sure, if I was 6 feet tall and had super long legs, I probably would be, but I've just never felt shorts have really done my legs any favours. But, I must say, if there's one style of shorts I'm more likely to be ok...it's shorts with a scallop hem! Why? Because they're just so adorable! I thrifted these ones from Value Village, but I've linked up a few pairs of similar ones at the end of this post. And they also look a lot dressier than your average everyday pair of shorts. So I thought today I'd put together a classy shorts outfit with this new pair of not-my-enemy shorts.

I wouldn't normally wear heels with shorts, as I don't like the look of jean shorts with heels...but with a dressier pair of shorts, I think they can work well. Especially if they're in a nude-type colour, like the light pink ones I'm wearing here. They help to mitigate my main issue with shorts by elongating the look of my legs.

To balance out the look, I recommend going with a looser fitting top - in this case, a floral Kimono blouse from SheIn. While these shorts are skin tight at least, they're still obviously fitted, and show off plenty of leg, so I like to balance that out. This kimono top is super cute, and only $9!!!

And just like that! I'm ready for Happy Hour drinks on a fancier patio. What do you think? Can shorts ever be considered 'dressy' in your book? I'm not saying they'll pass for a cocktail-attire wedding, but I think they can go a lot further than the beach or bar!
