Wear shorts as formals



Shorts are mostly thought of as casuals or meant for casual occasions which is mostly true but we can also make them work for formal occasions, here's how, choose 1) tailor made styles 2) more conservative lengths 3) fabrics such as silk, linen, wool, etc and pair with 4) formal top/ blouse/ shirt  5) appropriate accessories.

Linen shorts in tailor made styles are great for formal wear and even us shorts fearing ladies can rock them with confidence.









Love the pairing of blush with white, it is very soft and feminine and totally made for spring summer when the lighter colour palette is more soothing to the senses.


White tops and blouses with interesting details are all the rage right now and this one from Zara in cotton fabric with the cute sleeve detail is super trendy yet super comfortable and versatile. I can see myself wearing it with high waisted skinnies, skirts, cropped pants, basically everything. If you are looking to update ur wardrobe for Spring summer,  do include a white blouse with interesting details in your list. Its a huge trend which is very easy to pair with existing pieces in our wardrobes.

  6. Before I even read this post, I was going to comment on how pretty, Springy and effortless blush and white look together. The top and shorts are so pretty and both quite dressy, which follows with the tips you have here. I own a few pairs of dressier shorts and I have worn some to work, before. =)

    Do come by and linkup with me this Thursday and every Thursday, Chichi. I would love to have you in my linkup and for you to share your style thoughts with my readers. =) Thank you. Ada.
