Sure, jean shorts scream summer (beach, barbecues, general front-porch lounging), but who says they can’t work for spring too? Hey, it’s 77 degrees in Los Angeles today, 75 in Houston, 77 in Miami! Ladies, if your thermometer is reading above 70, take the below advice very, very seriously. While weather is certainly a part of being able to wear shorts, it’s not tank top season quite yet, so transition artfully. Take a look at these outfits for inspiration:
One of my favorites is the button-down-and-blazer look, like this one styled by J.Crew. Shop it for yourself below!
