A cute pair of tailored shorts — and we’re not talking denim — pull double duty. Not only do they help you beat the heat, but they also kick up the style factor on your summer looks. Try a pair in a trendy print (think: stripes or ikat) or with sophisticated details (think: leather trim or belted).
Another plus? You can easily dress them up or down. By swapping your flat sandals for a heeled pair, your look can go from dressy casual to date night in a matter of minutes.
