Evening Shorts Make A Big Impact On The Red Carpet

We think that there’s no better way to show off those stems than with a pair of shorts, particularly for evening. So much less expected than the usual suspects (mini, cocktail dress) a pair of dressy shorts are sure to make a style statement.

Now just how high are you willing to go? That’s the question you may want to ask yourself when considering this number by Chanel. Generally speaking, super short shorts should be left to the twenty-something set or to those with Tina Turner-esque gams. Feeling a little exposed? Opt for a slightly longer version for a similar look at your comfort level.

Zoe Saldana makes it look so easy, doesn’t she? But pay attention to the elements that make up her outfit: tucked in loose fitting tee, blazer that hits at hip, minimal accessories and heels high enough to get those calf muscles in gear. Follow her lead and you should master this look with ease.

There was a boyish twist at Dsquared and we just love how they’ve reinterpreted the female tux for evening. Head-to-toe, we want it all except we may choose to lose the socks.
