black shorts, styled casually and dressy
i thought it would be fun to style the same top and shorts two ways, to show how easy it is to create different looks and feels in a matter of minutes.
in my first look, which i dub the 'casual' look, i added the top and shorts with some black tights, because it's cold here. any short pieces definitely need tights to keep the legs warm. i added a belt for shape, but i left my top untucked, for a more comfy-casual look. adding a beanie and black cowboy boots finished off my outfit.
in my second oufit, i tucked the blouse in, to make the outfit 'neater'. i kept the belt, because i like having a defined waist. i took off the beanie, and honestly, i would probably wear my hair in a high ballerina bun with this outfit, to even make it a bit more posh. while i kept my black tights, i traded in my cowboy boots for black t-strap shoes.
blouse, shorts: ruche
boots: marrs, aldo
shoes: chelsea crew nolita's, lulu's
beanie: urban oufitters
tights: we love colors
there you have it. a very simple way to dress up or dress down short shorts and a blouse.
