shorts-trend-summer-looks (2)Just the other day a woman asked me (a complete stranger practically. Yeah I see her everyday when I go grocery shopping, but that’s not the point) – ”Oh, honey, why you always in jeans, cutoffs or dresses? Why don’t you wear beautiful shorts?” WTF. What does that even mean? This coming from a woman who’s well over 40 draped in cheap rhinestones like an over-tinseled Christmas tree.

I replied nothing, just a fake smile that was literally throwing all the angry emojis as her. Mind texting & cursing. shorts-trend-summer-looks (7)And BTW, what the fuck is wrong with cutoffs anyway? shorts-trend-summer-looks (16)After the wave of uncontrollably crowded & angry emojis from my mind had calmed the fuck down, I got to thinking that in all her randomness & (probably) unwanted rudeness… well… she was kinda sorta right. Right? I mean, except for that day when I wore my New Balance sneakers with those black shorts, I can’t for the love of me think of another time in the past year maybe when I’ve worn simple shorts in summer. Like floral, patters, white, green, red, anything but denim or cutoff.

Is there something wrong with me? shorts-trend-summer-looks (4)shorts-trend-summer-looks (3)shorts-trend-summer-looks (5)Rewinding a little bit to say 5 years ago, I only wore shorts. Never cutoffs. Okay rarely cutoffs, but the point I’m trying to make to myself  here is that I’ve probably just used up all my shorts-outfit-mood, you know. It’s done for me. Unless it’s autumn or winter, then I love wearing them with knits and chunky ankle boots, summer shorts for me is been there done that shit. Gimme something new.

Having said that I do confess I like them on others of course, they’re a classic staple. What I don’t like is my fear of looking too summer-common: colored shorts, basic top, flat shoes. But that’s just my idiotic overly-been-there-done-that-shorts-thing talking. shorts-trend-summer-looks (6)When last month I wrote about bermuda shorts I thought the short shorts were out. ‘Haha’, laughed the shorts. ‘Never. We’re classic.’ Yes indeed. So I figured why beat them (for not good reason btw) when you can join them and see the trendy/hot/cool side of this never-dying trend.

Perfect for summer dates, days, nights, going out they go with anything from flats to sexy as fuck heels, with basic tops, crispy shirts, clutches bags and everything. So let’s have a look at some street stylers and get inspired. shorts-trend-summer-looks (8)shorts-trend-summer-looks (9)shorts-trend-summer-looks (10)shorts-trend-summer-looks (11)shorts-trend-summer-looks (12)shorts-trend-summer-looks (13)shorts-trend-summer-looks (14)shorts-trend-summer-looks (15)shorts-trend-summer-looksstreet-style-shorts (2)street-style-shorts (3)street-style-shorts (4)street-style-shorts (5)street-style-shorts (6)street-style-shorts (7)street-style-shortssummer-shorts-looks (2)summer-shorts-looks (6)summer-shorts-looks (4)summer-shorts-looks (3)summer-shorts-looks (5)Now excuse me, as I’ll go try on some crazy colored shorts. Stepping out of my comfort zone is today’s mantra. :) And now, your thoughts on shorts…

Have a great weekend! xoxo

    Ouch! You know I am a huge fan of your blog, so I am saying this out of love. You are drop-dead gorgeous, and I predict that when you are “well over 40”, you still will be. You still will care about fashion, and will still be knowledgeable in that field. I am 46, and your attitude toward people in my age group stings. Just FYI.

      Heidi I apologies if I offended you in any way. Never have I intended to say anything offensive about someone in regards to age. NEVER!!!! I would never do that, I respect everyone, of all ages, regardless of their fashion-likes or dislikes. I was just giving info (age, gender, dressing way) of a lady for purposes of making a point: that someone may not be all that in any domain, but they judge others. That was it. I’m sorry again if I offended you. It was never my intention, nor had anything to do with the fashion penchant of a person, nor her age. :)

    the outfits are great! I totally understand you, I am also afraid of wearing always the same style with shorts, even though there are so many patterns and types and colours that you can totally play around with it!
    have a great day :)
