STYLE MAKERS: Summer Shorts

I spent three hours yesterday trying to finding the perfect pair of shorts and ended up with three t-shirts, two skirts, and only one pair of house shorts. The search for perfection is never complete. The perfect pair of shorts has to have some essential components: length, fit, versatility and good does it make your booty look?

Here are some inspirations...

From Garance Doré, this is about the length of the shorts I got yesterday, though I don't dare wear this length to work, maybe for household chores and a day at the beach.

Texture brings these shorts from Karla's Closet beyond the typical khaki and denim. Love the styling of the clutch and a breezy blouse. Makes me want to take a weekend getaway to Maui!

Two choice picks from My Cherry Gum, the tropical print on these shorts and the classic car makes them Miami or Cuba worthy.

Nautical inspired shorts with gold buttons adds a little something special to a basic and navy stripes.

This is probably my favorite look from Paris in the summer by the Sartorialist inspires me to remember that basics, when pulled together with taste are the key components of personal style.

The sailor over sized-button details on these navy shorts makes even the shortened length have a trouser like quality.

The tailored fit and leather trimming on these shorts from Chasing Cherries had me swooning. How perfect are they?

One of my favorite looks. From Knight Cat. Comfortable and sexy with a bit of tomboyish charm. View more inspirations from My Daily Style.
