The short answer to your question is—absolutely! Whether you’re rocking a trendy pair of overalls or your favorite worn-in cut-offs, the amount of sleeve included on your top is unlimited. Not everyone wants to show off their arms during the warmer months, while some of us battle with finding a balance between being too hot and too cold. Sleeves on top and shorts on bottom can help create the perfect compromise. Even better, if you’re feeling a little warm under a breezy button-up or knit top, a simple rolling of the sleeve will do the trick to adjust your body temperature still looking stylish.
Once the weather starts to cool down, try layering on a pair of tights underneath your shorts and swapping in your sandals for a pair of ankle boots or tall boots.
