Integrating new colors and prints into your wardrobe will maximize the use of everyday basics. I’m trying to be really conscious of buying things I don’t have anything like in order to mix up my looks. With Summer right around the corner, a great way to create easy outfits that are fun, but still allow you to run around, is to layer your staples on top (that you already have) – T’s, blazers, lightweight sweaters, and invest in some printed shorts.
Shorts have a bad rap because they can be a disaster if you buy the wrong type for your body. Know that your shorts should hit just below the largest part of your thigh. Also, make sure they are not too small (looks all kinds of wrong) AND not too big (usually looks really sloppy). When all else fails (even though I love wearing shorts with strappy, colorful sandals) – wear them with a wedge or some type of comfortable heel – it instantly takes 5 lbs off.
That being said, it’s a great way to mix up solid colors and allows you to use a lot of pieces you probably already have.
