The onset of summer often leaves us pondering whether heels can, in fact, be paired with those leg-baring summer shorts. The short answer is: absolutely!
Read on for the rundown on how to wear heels with shorts:
- Bermuda shorts and kitten heels: This pairing says polished and sophisticated while striking a modest height and leg-exposure suitable for professional environments.
- Wedges and flowy shorts: For a relaxed summer look, pair wedges with flowy silk or linen shorts with an embroidered top. To dress it up, try pairing a button-down chambray with soft shorts with your wood block or espadrille wedges.
- Stilettos and cut-offs: This pairing is not for the faint-hearted, but rank among fashionistas as the go-to outfits for a chic and “look at me and my legs” style. Keep your top selection modest to keep the attention squarely on those gams.
- Booties and rompers: For the ultimate throw on and go outfit, pair your romper with a bootie boasting a subtle heel. Finish with a wide-brim hat and a cross body with a little fringe to drive this look home.
