Feel Fresh Fridays: High Waisted Shorts

Each spring, I look forward to ending the winter for good by cutting up my jeans to make myself some new shorts for the upcoming season. However, after a life-time of daisy dukes, classic denim shorts can seem a bit boring.  High-waisted shorts are a great way to stay cool and stay in style. They can easily be dressed up, unlike the cut-off's we generally associate with summer. They are a surprisingly versatile addition to any wardrobe and a fun look for spring.

Although the style is retro, you can pair the shorts with floral-print tops and colorful necklaces to keep the look modern and funky.
Try a pair of silk high-waisted shorts with a loose, tucked-in top. The look is laid-back but polished, and a perfect transition from day to night activities.

Many people believe that only thinner body types can pull of this style, but like any other garment, it is about finding the right fit for you. The cut of the shorts is flattering on body types from thin to curvy. It enhances the right curves and helps to lengthen the look of your legs when paired with heels.
