Outfit Idea: Silk Summer Shorts and Big Bold Accessories


Praise the paper-bag waist! Seriously, if you don’t own a pair of paper-bag waist trousers or shorts, you will want to get one. They are super comfortable, really flattering (the ultimate antidote for muffin top) and perfect for anyone who is over low rise pants.

A high waist can be incredibly flattering, and when it’s paired with heels, legs undoubtedly look miles longer. I bought these silk shorts at Madewell last summer and they are my go to pair since they can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Since I have them paired with platform high heels I’m showing a lot of leg, so I like to throw a sweater over the top to tone the look down and keep it appropriate. The white racerback tank is from Nordstrom’s BP section which I always recommend as a great place to get basics. This tank is silky and perfect with jeans for the weekend or a skirt for going out…plus it was only $30.

With the neutral palette of my shorts, tank and sweater, l thought I’d add a pop of color with my favorite turquoise JCrew necklace and a pair of surprisingly confortable color blocked platform sandals. I was actually able to wear this outfit in Seattle this week since it’s been 80 degrees and sunny… who would have thought! Here’s to summer!
