The shorts represent already a common piece of outfit and this happens not only on the beach anymore. It is for a long time now a piece of outfit from a woman’s wardrobe that can be matched in many ways.
Of course that those combinations depend on a series of aspects: the place where you will wear them, the event, your personality and so on.
I find to be of great effect the following combination: shorts – blazer – T-shirt.
This type of combo (and its variations of color and model) seems perfect to me. It is practical, simple but chic at the same time.
In addition, for an excellent look, it is a very good value for the money.
