Aspiring Street Stylers, Take Note–The Dos And Donts Of Pulling Off Shorts With Tights
It's that time of year again, you know, when fall is in the air but you still don't want to let go of your warm weather wardrobe. You just want to wear shorts all year long - and we don't blame you! Well speaking of, who's to say I can't bust out my shorts well through December? Pulling off shorts with tights isn't easy, but it is doable. You just have to stick to a few very important guidelines. For example, denim or dark-colored shorts are always your best (read: safest) bet. Also, at least one week's worth of leg exercises should happen before you pair your shorts with tights. And let's not forget, cutoffs are fine, but daisy dukes are definitely not (unless you're a supermodel, that is). So let's get started. As a rule of thumb, black opaque tights are your go-tos. They not only provide a sleek monochromatic look, but they'll keep your legs warmer than a sheer version. Plus, they pair well with any type of shoe - whether it's a Mary Jane or peep toe. For a bolder option of this amazing look, you can try a patterned pair of tights. Mini polka-dots are always cute, while knit cutouts are super artsy - although the latter definitely won't keep you as warm. To pull of the look, you'll want to put together exactly the right outfit. Opt for a pair of tweed shorts, which were practically made to be worn with tights. Or channel your inner Blair Waldorf and pair your shorts with a long coat, which not only creates a sophisticated flair but helps keep your bum warm, too! And if all else fails, remember that you can never go wrong with all-black everything - there's a reason why it's the standard dress code for all New Yorkers! Feeling adventurous? You can even wear your favorite pair of shorts sans tights and still look fabulous! To protect bare legs from the cold, wear the shorts with over-the-knee boots. Available in all kinds of styles from suede to snakeskin, they're so chic, we probably won't have to tell you twice. For the brave bare-legged folk, leather shorts are also a much warmer option than a more lightweight pair. Try them with a cute pump and a slouchy pair of socks, and you're good to go! Overall, it's important to remember that no matter how you choose to wear your shorts, fit is key. Shorts that are too tight can make you look trashy, while shorts that are ill-fitting or too baggy won't be doing your curves any favors. And who would ever want that? You've officially been warned. To nail the look this season, click through the slideshow for must-know intel on how to wear shorts with tights. Then, treat yourself to these perfect black shorts and these black tights. And for even more fashion know-how, check out how to wear maxi skirts in winter, how to wear leopard without looking trashy and how to wear metallic jeans.

Can Someone Please Explain What Is Wrapped Around Kendall Jenner’s Ankles?
These Are The Best Denim Cutoff Shorts If Your Thighs Rub Together
No matter how much I work out, I will never have a thigh gap. It's a fact that I've accepted. But denim shorts that rise up in between my legs when I walk? I refuse to accept that, which is why I made it my mission to find a pair that looked great, but also stayed in place. The winner? Levi's 501 Shorts ($49.50). The 2.5 inch may seem short, but rest assured there's no visible butt cheek and they hit in just the right place to prevent bunching. I already own three pair--they're that good. A few notes of caution: sizing can be a bit tricky. My usual denim size was way too small and tight, but the size up was perfect. I could even afford to go two sizes up to achieve the slouchy "boyfriend" look. Also, I would advise against washing them after every wear (use these guidelines instead!) and drying is definitely a no-no to prevent shrinkage. Have another pair of denim shorts you love? Please share in the comments! 501 Shorts ($49.50) Be sure to check out where to buy Rihanna's PUMA creeper shoes and how to wear a denim skirt. [Photo: Levi's] Follow me on Insta!

Love or hate her style choices, there's no denying that Kim Kardashian isn't afraid to take fashion risks. Her latest leap of faith is wearing spandex biker shorts.

Is It OK To Wear Short Shorts If You’re Over The Age Of 50?
CNN Newsroom anchor Carol Costello recently wrote a piece titled, "I'm 53. I'll Wear Short Shorts If I Want." She shares her opinion on J.Crew's latest Style At Every Age editorial, in which the retailer declares short shorts are not for women who are over the age of 49. But this only touches on a larger topic that Costello describes as, "schooling older ladies on what they should or shouldn't bare." Back in 2010, Oprah.com published a story claiming woman of a certain age should not wear Uggs or neon nail polish. We even have a list of 30 Things You Should Not Own Over The Age Of 30.

16 Shorts You Can Wear To Work Because August Is The Hottest Month EVER
Even though you may think summer clothing, like sleeveless dresses, denim shorts and muscle tanks, isn't important anymore, you're wrong. August is the HOTTEST month in the year: so go all out with your deodorant. Dressing for work in the heat can be tricky, but we have the answer: shorts. Yes, you read that right, you can wear shorts to work. A lot of people believe that these bottoms aren't appropriate for the office, but we say otherwise, especially when the temps are hitting close to or at 90 degrees every day. And since every office has a different dress code, we put together three different ways to wear shorts to work, so take advantage of it! The men in your office have to sweat it out in their suits all day. 1. Long shorts Think in-between regular and bermudas for this length. Usually, these shorts are made with suit material, so it's best to wear them with blazers, cardigans, chiffon tops, button downs and heels to complete the style. They are a little more on the expensive side, but you can take this item from day to night no problem. It's a great investment. 2. Shorts that look like skirts These shorts basically give you a freebee when it comes to dressing up for work. Since they look like skirts, people will assume you’re wearing one, except you won't flash people and go all Marylin Monroe when a huge gust of wind surprises you. It’s fun to wear flowy, patterned shorts with a solid top and sandals or oxfords. When wearing plain shorts, either pair with a patterned top or go for a monochrome look with a bold necklace. 3. Structured shorts Though these shorts can be on the shorter side, make sure they are made out of a good material that is work appropriate, like cotton or leather. Because you are wearing shorter bottoms than most people, be sure to pair them with shoes that will balance out the look like espadrilles. Match these shorts with nice tops and a statement necklace to look professional. So take a look at this slideshow and buy some workplace-approved shorts to wear.

26 Shorts That Look Like Skirts, So You Don’t Have To Worry About Flashing Randos
It's the end of July, but the heat just keeps on coming. And on top of that, you still need to look presentable for work while making it through your morning commute. Oh, and sweat marks? You're definitely going to need these tips to stop them from ruining your clothes. We totally get it: you are so over summer, or at least the gross sticky feeling that comes with temperatures over 70 degrees. Isn't there a way to look good in the heat without really trying? Your answer: shorts. No, not denim shorts. Flowy shorts! This season, these breathable bottoms are a major trend, and why wouldn't they be? Besides being super comfortable, they have the light and airy look of a skirt, but won't fly up with a huge gust of wind. You may not think that's a reason to skip skirts, but trust us: you do not want that happening. So when you're feeling incredibly lazy and are over putting in any effort, just pull on a pair of flowy shorts and call it a day.

50 Denim Cut Offs Under $50 In EVERY Color You Could Possible Want
Even though we're still a few weeks away from shorts season, I am SO ready to break out my denim cut offs. For those of you who have been wearing them when it's 65 degrees out...props. I love my cut offs, but not enough to wear them and feel like I'm starring in Frozen. You've probably stalked all the pics of celebs at Coachella, or maybe you were lucky enough to see them in person, but either way, you definitely know they were ROCKING jorts. It made me seriously jealous...but also got me thinking that even though it's too early to wear them, I can still get some new denim cut offs to add to my collection. Since I'm not replacing my jorts, I don't really want to spend that much on them, you feel me? So I decided to look for some under $50 ones, and what do you know, there's A LOT out there. And I felt the need to share my findings with all of you. Click the slideshow to see 50 denim cut offs, in all different washes, for under $50.

Did These Brands Really Just Knock Off American Apparel’s Shorts?
American Apparel better watch out, because apparently, it is very easy to get ahold of their printed denim and knock-off their shorts. I've actually been eyeing a pair of the American Apparel Sunflower Print Stretch Bull Denim High-Waist Cuff Shorts ($60) for over a year, but I just can't justify spending that much money on festival clothes. But now I don't have to! Three retailers, SheInside, Choies, and Forever 21 are selling look-alikes of AA's most popular high-waisted shorts for under half the price. Come on, American Apparel. Step up your game. Why should we buy your $60 shorts when the cheaper ones are exactly the same? These knock-offs are actually so good, that we can't even tell the difference. Can you?

15 Chambray Shorts That Will Have You Saying ‘Peace Out, Cutoffs’
You already know our love of chambray runs deep. It's the perfect alternative to denim come summer when you want something lighter and looser than the heavy fabric. We know nothing can replace the fit and feel of a good pair of denim cutoffs, but chambray shorts are just what you need for one of those "I have nothing to wear" days. And you're bound to have a lot of those once we're wearing warm weather clothes on the reg. If you thought the best thing about these bottoms is their soft material, wait until you hear this. Designers like Splendid and Joie added drawstrings and elastic waists to their styles to make the shorts THAT much comfier.

13 Soft Printed Shorts That Are Just As Comfy As Your Pajama Bottoms
We knew that printed pants would be a trend this spring, but printed soft shorts just took lazy-girl style to a whole new level. We first saw them this season styled by some of our favorite fashion bloggers, and we were instantly obsessed. Some would argue that these silky bottoms look like pajamas, and we're the first to admit that they do. But when worn right, printed shorts are pretty great. Who wouldn't want to look super cute and feel like they're wearing PJ's at the same time? It's a win-win situation. Now we're sure this will probably end up being a trend that men hate, but do we really care? Whether you dress them up with heels and a nice top, or dress them down with flats, sandals or sneakers, these are an easy fix to that "I have nothing to wear" problem plaguing all girls. So now that you've seen some of our favorite bloggers wearing them, you can wear them with confidence too!

How To Wear Jogger Shorts (Yes, You Can Do It. No, You Don’t Have To Be Gisele.)
We've been seeing sporty jogger shorts everywhere this season. With an adjustable drawstring waistband and a fairly forgiving fit, they're a fun departure from regular shorts and despite what you're probably thinking, they can actually be flattering--if your wear them right. Which of course begs the question: how the heck do you wear them without looking like you're about to embark on a run? We've got a few styling tips that will guarantee passersby know you're headed to the latest hot spot, not the gym. It's easy: 1. Pair joggers with wedges or heels. Elongate your legs, and eliminate any confusion about whether you're about to exercise. 2. If you must wear flats, opt for strappy gladiators. They'll accentuate your gams and play nicely off the sporty trend. 3. Wear a structured, tucked in top. We're big fans of slouchy off the shoulder tees and sweatshirts, but with these shorts, opt for something a little dressier. Otherwise, your outfit may look sloppy. 4. Fit is key. If they're too small, joggers bunch unattractively around your thighs. If they're too big, they resemble pajama bottoms. If you're in between sizes, we recommend going up a size and having your shorts tailored if need be. 5. Go for a wild fabric or crazy pattern. While basic gym joggers are often a solid color, this season's fashion joggers come in a variety of tribal, floral, and other trendy prints, as well as fun faux leather and metallic fabrics. Check out other bottoms we love for summer: light denim, tulip skirts, and slitted skirts! [Photo: Lee Oliveira]
Why Tie A Shirt Around Your Waist When You Can Buy A $270 Skirt With Fake Sleeves?
Now that overalls are making a comeback, it only makes sense that other 90s trends follow suit. And nothing screams, "Angela Chase is my style icon" more than wearing a flannel shirt around your waist. I have to admit, I kind of love the whole "tying a shirt around your pants" trend (talk about convenient). I'm a sucker for 90s nostalgia: There's still a little part of me that wants to dye my hair red, lean up against a locker and dream about Jordan Catalano. When I saw that 3.1. Phillip Lim had a printed pencil skirt with a flannel shirt tied around the waist, I fell in love. Until I realized that the flannel shirt was faux. As much as I love the trend, there's no way I'd pay $270 (originally $450) for a skirt with a FAKE shirt tie around it. Maybe I could justify the price if I got a whole flannel, but just sleeves isn't going to cut it. Seriously, Phillip Lim, for once I don't need your designer expertise, I'm pretty sure tying a shirt around my waist is a DIY project I can handle. What do you think of the trend's revival? Check out the different grunge styles below and let me know what you think. 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Skirt with Shirt Tie' in 'Antique White' ($270, down from $450) 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Skirt with Shirt Tie' in 'Black' ($270, down from $450) Rihanna also jumped in on the trend with a pair of white shorts with a fake denim shirt attached.

Is It Just Us Or Are These Current/Elliott Star Print Shorts Kind Of Amazing?
We're seriously digging this season's star print trend, which probably explains why we're currently coveting these Current/Elliott The Boyfriend Shorts ($208). Not only are they the perfect denim cutoffs, but they're covered in metallic stars--what's not to love? We're thinking they'd be great 4th of July garb. The gold stars will offer a much-needed break from all the red, white and blue, but they're still patriotic. Plus, you could pair these shorts with anything from a plain tee and espadrilles to a gorgeous silk top and wedges. If the Current/Elliott star print jeans are an indication of how popular these shorts will be this summer, we say get yourself a pair now.
