Ask Shopbop: Styling Shorts

A perfectly styled summer look: DL1961 shorts, Current/Elliott top, Karen Walker sunglasses, Madewell bag, and Swedish Hasbeens sandals.

Shorts are tricky. Not a universally flattering garment, they need careful consideration if you're tempted to work them into your summer rotation.

Think length and occasion. Shorts are usually a casual move, so tread carefully if you're considering a pair for the office. A nice bermuda paired back to something tailored and clean on top could be an option. For life outside of work, short-shorts with a high waistline can be sweet, especially when paired with a wedge or clog for a little leg-lengthening lift. Complete the ensemble with a casual top, and enjoy a day in the sun. Boyfriend shorts are also a solid option this season. Take the easy (and equally cute) road and reach for a slip-on sneaker or an earthy sandal. Finish off the look with a slouchy blouse, a loose-knit sweater, or even an oversized denim jacket.

Shop designer shorts.

An oversized denim jacket adds irreverent edge to a button-down shirt and cuffed shorts.

A fresh white blazer makes these pinstripe shorts both office- and summer-ready.
