High Waisted Silk Shorts - Among Other Things

High Waisted Silk Shorts

… Truly, the best way to trick your body into thinking you’re actually wearing satin boxer briefs.

 I love the retro revival a high-waisted pair of shorts can lend an ensemble, but they can be tricky to style. How do you wear yours (if at all)?

Whether they’re full or fitted, you can totally wear this trend. The key is to find bottoms that hit your natural waist and hug your hips. I found this pair on sale at Urban Outfitters last week and I’ve been wearing them non-stop ever since — with t-shirts, tanks and this blouse… And, of course, 5-inch stacked gladiator wedges. No less.

To balance the length, I’d suggest showing some leg. Or, put another way, wearing a shorter pair to keep your gams from looking stumpy.

If you’re still unsure where to start when trying this trend, just tuck in your shirt and toss on a belt. Really, it’s that easy. If you still need an additional dose of inspiration, though, I’m serving up four more ways to style the high-waisted short tomorrow, so check back then!

    I was wondering where you got your tan colored gladiator wedges. I’m OBSESSED with them, and would like to buy them. Or if you are selling them? I know you are probably not since you obviously like them, but I thought I’d ask! Thanks so much!
