Summer is coming -- are your legs ready? Shorts are everywhere this year! Recent trends steer away from the longer Bermuda-style pants and more towards short shorts. (Think mid-thigh and up.) When worn with heels or wedge sandals, shorts can make your legs look longer and leaner. Pair them with ballet flats or sandals and a silk shirt for a polished, preppy look, or just toss on a tee and a pair of oversized sunglasses to don a classic, retro style. However you wear them, shorts are perfect for just about any summer activity, from lounging by the beach or pool all the way to working a day at the office or dancing the night away at a rooftop party.
