Hot summer evenings call for shorter hemlines, and your LBD and mini skirts cold use a break. Instead, switch to fanciful shorts for a night on the town.
The combination can be tricky – try these three looks and find out why they work…
Why it works: Black is a no-fail option for dressier nights out. The draped top with lace details steps up the sass, and the pewter statement necklace and platforms add an edgy-luxe finish.
Why it works: The flattering pleats and ruffled pockets fancy-up the rose-pink bottoms. The barely-there sparkling tank and nude pumps add daring allure. The extra long feather earrings bring evening drama.
Why it works: The tailoring and cuffs on the chambray bottoms give them a little more class than basic denim. The cut-out detail and bold magenta hue of the tank has ‘notice-me’ appeal. A glittering necklace and pumps are all the sparkle you’ll need. The belt is the finishing touch that creates a pulled-together look.
