Ahoy, mateys! I don't know about you guys, but summer weather really brings out the inner sailor in me. I've always been obsessed with nautical-inspired pieces, and fortunately for me, I've been seeing lots of navy and big brass buttons everywhere.

Inspired by my obsession, this week I'll be showing you how to style a pair of sailor shorts for both a day of class and a night out. These flattering little guys are surprisingly versatile and represent a chic twist on your basic high-waisted shorts. Gotta love a girl in uniform, right?

For a super chic and simple outfit for class, throw on a bold graphic sweatshirt. The slightly grungy vibe of this one pairs nicely with the ultra-tailored shorts, giving you some oh-so-trendy contrast. Play with color by grabbing a fun orange shoulder bag, then amp up the ensemble with baby blue nail polish. Add nautical-inspired accessories like gold knot earrings and an anchor (of course!) charm necklace. Next, complete the look with a pair of goddess-worthy metallic detailed sandals.

Dress up these playful shorts with a trendy collared top. Try a metallic collar for a look that's simply to die for. Next, add a little glam with a classic black envelope clutch, contrasting the sophisticated vibe with a pair of rocking black studded sandals. Complete the ensemble with elegant touches of bling – a studded crystal bracelet and delicate anchor studs will stand out at any party.
