Shorts need not be reserved for those casual days where you don't want to bother dressing up. With a couple of easy styling tweaks, this leg-baring piece can also make you look classy for your next catch-up session with your girls or even for an afternoon business meeting outside the office. 


1. Layer a long outerwear—may it be a sleeveless blazer or an unbuttoned shirt dress—over a tank top and shorts for the perfect balance of skin exposure.

2. Turn up to your ladies’ meet-up at a fancy resto or bar in a dressy, long-sleeved blouse tucked into a black denim shorts.

Complete the look with neutral-colored heels (or flats)!

3. For something a bit more laid-back, tuck in a white button-down shirt into your denim shorts, but finish off the look with a pair of smart shoes (think: leather flats!) for a polished touch.

FN Tip: You can also pair it with white sneakers for a casual yet clean and coordinated look!

4. Upgrade your wardrobe with smart tailored shorts that always look sophisticated even if you pair them with a plain, white T-shirt!

7. Invest in a coordinated shorts-and-blazer set for an effortless way to look elegant in this presko piece.
