My inspiration for these looks actually came from a very nautical take on the striped shorts and blazer style. You can do this combination with all different types of shorts and pair them up with any color traditional blazer or a denim/white jean jacket.
This is another combination that has limitless possibilities. The looks I am featuring are centered around these striped gold sequined shorts which I absolutely love because when they are paired with a pale pink shirt, flats and a cross body bag they are instant chic day wear. I then added a denim jacket to it to complete my day look. Moving on into later on in the day when I wanted to dress up the look, I replaced the more plain pink shirt with a dressier white buttoned down blouse and replaced the ballet flats with a pair of stilettos. My favorite look is the last one I wore when I added the tan blazer to it and wore it out to dinner. My one major style rule for always keeping it classy is that if you are going to wear something on the shorter side such as a pair of shorts or a skirt, that you cover up on the top to balance the look out.
