Wear white biker shorts


The second pair that I have is this white pair which is more of a soft cotton material. I wear these so often in the summer because I love wearing white in the warmer seasons. White is a flattering color and I love the length of this pair as well.

Roll up the bottoms


This gorgeous, high waisted pair is definitely a bit of a longer short. This pair is not too tight but also not too loose and I love that I can roll up the bottoms creating a bit of a shorter length if I want to.

I absolutely love this pair because they are so comfy! These black shorts are a little fancier and definitely work for summer events.

Wear a matching top


I think this pair is super adorable for the summertime! It also has a tie waist which is perfect when you’re tucking in a top and also adds a cute dimension to the short. One of the best details on this pair is definitely the pockets. I don’t love carrying big bags in the summertime so having pockets is a huge benefit!
