Dress Shorts For Women

When the hot summer sun is beating down, the last thing many women want is to dress in full-length pants. When short shorts won't do, women turn to dress shorts for women to keep cool without losing an ounce of style. The longer length of the typical dress short, paired with richer materials and fine details helps create a look that is elegant enough for many casual and semi formal settings while still providing the crisp look of a summer wardrobe. Pair dressier shorts with tanks, peasant blouses or dress tops to create an easy and elegant look for the hottest of summer weather.

The basic dressy look for summer is often shorts and a fitted top. By choosing dress shorts for women, this simple summer look is easily updated. Tailored shorts by American rag provide a clean and easy silhouette and pair beautifully with a variety of summer top. Consider pairing a basic white short with a brightly colored tank or blouse. For a cleaner look, pair black dressy shorts with a black cami and matching sheer blouse. Finish this look off with black ballet flats for a look that is appropriate for an afternoon in the park or dinner on the pier.

Creating a dressy look with dress shorts for women is equally possible. Choose shorts made of silk or delicate chiffon and pair them with a more formal top. Consider pairing Anne Klein shorts in red with a simple white tunic top. Complete this easy summer look with leather sandals and an oversized messenger bag. Dress shorts for women are an ideal choice for hot summer nights out. Pair short shorts by Baby Phat with a cowl neck tank and pumps for a night of dinner and dancing.
