Loving shorts but can’t figure out how to wear it? Take a cue from the runways.
My favorite way to do shorts this season is embellished with a tomboy topper (military- or rock-inspired — you choose) and a substantial flat boot or sandal. Asian American designer (and one of my favorites) Richard Chai shows you how with his super casual look for his diffusion line Richard Chai Love.
Generally, spring’s shorts look best with something long sleeved on top. A crisp white shirt keeps shorts sophisticated, like on Tao Okamoto below.
Add a jacket (and a short length longer than tap pant, please), and you’re set for work. At more creative offices, Marni’s more boxy silhouette works well, while shorts get sophisticated on Asian American designer Wayne Lee’s spring runway for her CFDA-nominated line Wayne.
Of course, when the weather gets better, nothing beats a bright, happy hue paired with the season’s must-have nude or khaki. (Roll up your hubby’s cut-off chinos for a slouchy effect.)
