|One of my all-time favorites (and it's on the red carpet!) Love the black on black|
|Olivia Palermo in black shorts with a white blouse at an event|
|Olivia (again!) is a big fan of the shorts trend and I actually see her utilize the look more than anyone|
|Charlize Theron in a cute short suit! I feel like this could go anywhere, from dinner and a movie, to a party.. whatever.|
|These are longer Bermuda shorts, but it works. Love this!|
|Leather top and dressy shorts - love the heels|
|Adorable! I love the mix of the girly pink with edgier black heels - perfection|
As for where to get them, I've seen great dressier shorts at J. Crew, Loft, Nordstrom, Banana Republic and especially at Zara. Zara does a dressier short a lot, often with a matching jacket. It's really all about the fabric. They can be short or long, but the fabric needs to be dressier than cotton, either a gabardine, rayon, wool, or a blend. Think dress pant, but shorter.
