Every woman’s mind is racing with ideas on how to let their inner summer fashionista shine. Shorts are a summer must-have, but they tend to be very casual and might need a little sprucing up to turn your car-wash shorts into night on the town or work-appropriate shorts. See how you can style your shorts for the office or a night out with the girls.

The Work Look: Inspired by Kourtney Kardashian Try a pair of non-denim shorts for a work-appropriate look. I love the classic pairing of black and white. Pair them with a simple heel to add a touch of sophistication. Try a chic purse that is big enough for you to carry a few files and a healthy snack in. In this outfit, a promotion should definitely be in your near future.

Night Out on the Town Look: Inspired by Katie Cassidy

You can take the same shorts and dress them up for a night out. Stand out in a bold look by adding a printed top. Be sure not to over accessorize when wearing bold prints. Pair it with a cute pair of heels, simple earrings, swap your work bag for a hip clutch, and you’re ready to rule the night!

Final Tip: Don’t forget every woman’s best accessory: your smile, because as Audrey Hepburn once said, “happy girls are the prettiest girls.”
