If you feel too sexy on wearing typical shorts or cutoff shorts, then long shorts or knee-length shorts often called as Bermudas and city shorts can be ideal for you. But, they’re not just made of typical denim or casual cotton as designers made them look dressier on their fabrications and silhouette perfect for your typical outfits. If you’re thinking how to style them fashionably and look chic, scroll on our 7 ways to wear them.
- Creative and Casual Office Styles
Since long shorts are available in sleek, dressy, and chic styles, you can wear them as perfect alternatives to dressy pants, especially if you’re working in a creative or casual office. The silhouette of long shorts is generally flat fronted, straight, and tapered through the thigh though waist pleated versions with wider legs are also stylish. The great thing about them is they look clean cut and classically modern compared to traditional dress pants you usually wear with a crisp shirt and structured blazer for a corporate look.
- Colorful Street Style
To channel your playful vibe, you may pick some bright or lively shades of your shorts like yellow, hot pink, mint green, cobalt blue, bright red and such to uplift your mood in the morning walks. You may pick a brightly or pastel colored top like a knitted sweater, graphic tee, tank top and such for a more artistic statement. However, picking colors of your printed shorts to match with your top and coat looks more polished and coordinated.
- Sexy and Trendy Styles
Since long shorts are knee-length, they will be a perfect match for your sexy tops like a bandeau top, crop top, sheer top, and lace top. To avoid showing off your midriff too much, pick a pair of long shorts in a high waist style to keep your sexy look tamed. They are more practical than a mini skirt or short dress, and substantially more covered than short shorts and cutoff shorts that can make you feel more secure and comfortable on your street looks.
- Edgy Street Style
To make your fashion statement edgy, opt for a pair of long shorts made from leather, or simply pair an edgy leather top with your existing long shorts. To polish your edgy vibe, opt for clogs, mules, boots, with or without studs over classic pumps and dressy shoes. Shades of black, white, and burgundy seem edgier and fiercer than cheery and lively shades of pink, blue, and red.
- Creative Fashion Style
Long shorts are trendy enough, but you can make them look more contemporary by wearing them with creative layers on your top. Wearing two pieces that are supposed not to be worn together looks as eclectic as matching opposing prints and patterns. Think of stylish tops you can wear to creative layers like a cropped sweater, button down shirt, crop top, corset top, blazer, plain tee and such.
- Sophisticated and Chic Style
Dressy long shorts are the perfect alternative for dresses and skirt as they can give you more coverage without sacrificing comfort and style. When worn with heels or classic pumps, long shorts look sophisticated and chic already and topping your looks with a smart tops, blazers, feminine blouse, crisp button down shirt, and chiffon top make them look dressier.
- Casual Chic Style
Long shorts are flattering, comfortable, and chic compared to shorter shorts. If you wish for a laidback vibe, opt for a pair of shorts made from denim, cotton, or other casual fabric and keep your top piece chic and polished. This way, you’re making your long shorts blend in with your personality and style preferences while looking trendy, chic, and stylish.
