There's no better alternative for hot-weather-fashion than shorts! Luckily shorts have gotten a makeover this year making them easily work-appropriate, not to mention the new shorts suit...

Some tips to make your shorts work-appropriate:
- Especially if you're short like me: Always wear your shorts with wedges. Not only do they lengthen your legs and make you taller, they really add the finishing polished touch to your outfit.
- Tuck it in! High-waist anything has been a huge trend recently and why not? Nipped in at the waist is universally flattering. It also lengthens the (appeared) length of your shorts.
- Pair it with a loose or longer sleeve blouse. Fashion is all about balance and proportions. If you've got something short/tight on the bottom, balance it out with something long/loose.
- Like the shorts suit idea? You don't have to go out and buy a set: Pair your shorts with a blazer you already own, it will really step your look up a notch.
