This week’s Fabulous Find is something that everyone is going to need this spring and summer – a pair of shorts! This particular pair is black, and at only $14.. you can’t beat them! I know that my black shorts are a total wardrobe staple for me, and I work them for every season – so here are some outfit ideas to help you guys to do the same!
Black shorts – $14 at Kmart
Here are three different ways to style this one pair of basic black shorts.
1. Tomboy Chic
This look is cool because it’s got a few boyish qualities that are balanced by a few ultra-feminine accents. I started with the black shorts, then added a simple neutral colored rugby-striped boyfriend sweater, and a slouchy grayish beanie to play off of the stripes. To even out these boyish pieces, I added a simple pair of girly black flats and a gorgeous black rhinestone cocktail ring.
Finally, for those of you who asked for colder weather options (I apologize for my lack of tights and jackets in the past few posts – this beautiful Florida weather has me spoiled!), I included a pair of cute polka dot tights to layer under the shorts for extra warmth. You could always omit them if you’re in a warmer climate!
2. Urban Cool
This outfit is definitely a lot more laid-back and obviously has a much more eclectic feel than the last. This time, I paired the black shorts with a cool, slouchy graphic tee picturing a brightly colored bird, and a pair of trendy ankle-height moccasins. I kept the accessories fairly minimal with just a few gold and bronze-toned bangles, and for those of you in colder weather, I once again included a pair of black tights and a pretty raspberry-colored cardigan to keep you warm!
3. Dressing Up
The third and final outfit is an easy way to dress up these normally casual shorts. Just by adding a pretty, dressy top, some black wedges, and an edgy pair of feathered earrings, these shorts become instantly chic and night-out appropriate. Again, I included a pair of black tights for those of you in colder weather, and actually, I like this look best with a pair of tights, even for warm weather nights. After all, shorts and bare legs are harder to dress up!
What do you think?
So there you have it – a pair of versatile black shorts, that can be worn in a multitude of ways, for only $14! How can you beat that? The possibilities are endless for any season with such a basic staple.
So what did you guys think? Do you like these shorts? Which outfit is your favorite? I’d love to hear your feedback!
