As temps climb to the 80's for August, anything baring the legs is a godsend — and shorts are the easiest, most practical way to do it. It can be tricky to style such a casual item into something a little more très chic, but British-based Emma Felin of Sassy Street welcomes the challenge with some helpful tools of the trade.
It all comes down to utilizing the right accessories and accomplishing those elegant silhouettes (like the high waist and the a-line) while downplaying brights or unique shapes with classic basics. On the other hand, you can spice up a monochrome look with the occasional nautical stripes or leopard print flat.
We know you've been itching to show off those newly-toned legs so go ahead and try out some of Emma's super stylish looks below!
