How To Make Long Shorts Look Totally Cool

Atlanta personal stylist, top atlanta blogger, atlanta street style

I never really got into wearing shorts, especially shorts that showed too much thigh meat.  Reason 1. I had scrawny legs, but the main reason is because growing up in the church we couldn't wear pants or shorts.  Now that I'm an adult and can decide what I want to wear, short shorts are still a style I kinda shy away from.

If you're like me and short shorts aren't your thing, but you still want to rock a shorts ensemble, this look is for you.  Now-a-days it seems like the shorts are getting shorter and shorter.  I mean, some girls (and grown women) are walking these streets in shorts so short they may as well be underwear; booty cheeks out and everything (smh and giving the side-eye at the same time).  I don't get it, but to each their own.

In this look I'm sharing how to treat longer length shorts the same way you would a pair of shorter shorts or even a pair of jeans.  While most tend to go the T-shirt route when wearing denim, I chose to wear this off-the-shoulder black & white striped shirt (also worn HERE + HERE).  And because I absolutely love this marigold colored blazer I thought adding it to this look would make a great statement.  It's vibrant, light weight and perfect for this long shorts outfit (check out the first time I wore it HERE).  

Whenever I'm shopping for myself or a client, the goal is to find pieces that are unique and that will make people stop and tell you how fabulous your ensemble is (I won't lie, I love that part).  That's where these super cute sneakers (first time wearing them in this look) with printed scarf adjustable laces come in to make this look stylish and trendy.  A mini book bag purse, some arm candy and a dope pair of shades.... Boom Shakalaka - A totally cool way to make long shorts look awesome.  

I hope this look inspires you to think outside the box.  You'll never know if you like it or actually look good unless you give it a try.  I challenge you to spend a little more time and effort in your closet, you just might shock yourself at what you came come up with.  Btw... wanna see how I've styled these shorts before -- go HERE, HERE + HERE and that one time I wore a shorter pair of shorts HERE.  

Tell me, would you try this look or something similar to it?  If not, what are your reservations for not trying this look?  Let's chat in the comments below.

I Turned An Ugly Dress Into A Cute Shirt

The best part about being a stylist is showing my clients how to make the most of their wardrobe.  What I've found is that most of them don't have bad taste in clothes, they just struggle with seeing the potential that's in their own closet.  That's why it's my job to help them develop the ability to see their closets full potential, which gives them the kick start they need to begin creating awesome outfits. 

When it comes to shopping the first question you should be asking yourself before buying an item is - How many ways can I style this piece?  If you can come up with at least 3 ways, then it's a good buy.  Take today's look for example.  This thrifted marigold dress turned lace shirt didn't have any hanger appeal, yet I knew it had the possibility of being a cute top.  Removing the underlining was a game changer.

If you're into keeping up with the latest styles and trends, then you know see-through mesh or sheer is a thing.  And while I've dabbled with this trend on a small scale (see HERE) I'm still a little hesitant about people being able to see right through my clothes.  So here's what's funny, I knew immediately that I was going to style this top without anything under it - go figure.  Now we've seen this look styled with lingerie only or jeans and a tee-shirt beneath it.  I opted to wear a distressed denim mini skirt just so that my be-hind wasn't out for all to see.  

Last month I hosted another Kläzit Raid shopping party and scored this bight colored marigold blazer that gave this look all kinds of springtime vibes.  My shoes are old from ShoeDazzle, but a cute red flat or sandel (or whatever shoe you decide) will work with this look.  The icing on the cake for me was the cigar box handbag with the colorful parakeets.   

Btw, the first time I wore this top, I styled it with a pair of high-waist wide-legged jeans and platform heels.  The next time I wear it, I think maybe to pair it with a dress and sneakers.  So there you have it, 3 different ways to wear this ugly dress turned cute top.  Before I close, question.... Do you have anything in your closet that you can re-purpose?  Or what's your relationship with colors?  Do you try new colors or stick with your go-to ones?  Talk to me in the comments below.
