The long-awaited summer season brings picnics with friends, weekend getaways and rising temperatures. It also comes with the annual sartorial issue of how to style shorts. Whether you're debating to tuck or not to tuck, or trying to find the right shoes that are not flip flops, this is one styling problem we're here to help you solve. While we look forward to shedding the layers, it can be difficult to rock this summer essential without looking like you're heading to summer camp.
That doesn't mean you can't sport a sharp pair of white sneakers or get funky with a pair of furry slides when navigating the territory of pants' little cousin. It's all about mixing and matching the right top and accessories with your shorts as your legs prepare for their summer debut.
