When the temperatures break triple digits in L.A. — and carrying out my daily activities in a bikini isn't totally
appropriate — I go the shorts route. You can dress shorts up or down, making them an easy go-to for getting groceries or going to a party — all the while preventing a heat stroke. The key is investing in a few different pairs, then learning how to style them for the occasion. Elizabeth M. from Riverside, Calif. asks how to do just that. So, for my three favorite shorts that'll work for every summer fete on your iCal, read on.
To style shorts for the office, I’d choose a polished pair in a longer length. This one, with its unique geometric design, is made of silk to keep your temps low. And how cute would they look with a drapey blouse and a pair of flats?

For a girls' night out, go metallic. Try pairing them with a statement top and a high pair of heels for an effortlessly chic look. Bonus: You can show off those tan summer legs of yours!
Leith 'Cosmic' Metallic Tap Shorts, $42, available at Nordstrom.
For a casual day running errands you’ll find me in a pair of jean cut-offs and a loose tee. Simple and comfy is the only way to beat the heat.
