Hello my fine fibbing friends,
Last night my grandmother revealed to me about how very happy she is that high waisted garments are back on fashion’s radar. As am I!
And at the moment I’m thinkin’ high waisted shorts are a great idea to mix up our spring wardrobe. I get seriously tired of wearing skirts and dresses to work, so, why not take a hint from the Olsen twins recent revelation of the new female suit? Swap out your skirt for shorts!
A great pair of high waisted shorts that can be worn from work during the day, and to drinks after, ready for play!
While scouring the net this afternoon, hidden from view while my boss is off in South Carolina preparing our studios for elections, I found a few glorious pairs of spring fling shorts. Don’t be surprised that they flatter, accentuate, and elongate those sexy stems! Powerful.
My pick of the litter (meow) was a hot little pair off of topshop.com– these are a neutral bone color that can be worn over and over again. They come with just the right amount of feminine flair, as seen in their hem, which is adorned with delicate lace. $75.00
Utilize the shorts’ transitional ability from work to drinks by wearing a fun slinky top underneath your work getup, a silk or satin dress shirt should do the trick. After 5 o’clock roll up your silken blouse and stow away in your purse. Accessorize with a belt dressy enough to go from day to night, and a light weight blazer–that you can wear to the office and leave behind if necessary ;) toss on a pair of pumps along with a statement “OMG necklace” and, girl, you’re ready for a night out!
