the short end of summer
In these last few weeks of summer, we still have a handful of outdoorsy events to attend — hello Labor Day! Why not spend them in the most quintessential warm-weather item: shorts? No longer relegated to the most casual of occasions, there are now shorts for pretty much any occasion. Send off summer in style, in these four types of shorts.
Final beach weekend: cutoffs by J Brand; top left.
What’s more American than a pair of cut off jean shorts? Go all out summer and pair with a bikini and espadrilles.
Beauty partner: A thick, black cat eye to add a little rock n’ roll to the classic summer look. Try our multiplEYE™ lash enhancing liquid eyeliner.
Labor Day barbecue: seersucker chinos from Boy. by Band of Outsiders; top right.
Look tailored at your family BBQ with some crisp blue-striped shorts. Be ultra-patriotic with a white button-down and a few red bangles.
Beauty partner: A glowing, flawless complexion. Our maracuja blush & glow brightening luminizer and cheek tint adds just the right amount of highlight.
End-of-summer office event: tailored shorts by Malene Birger; bottom right.
Keep it professional with tailored shorts (not too short!) in a high-quality fabric. Pair with a filmy silk blouse and statement jewelry.
Beauty partner: The nude lip. Both chic and office worthy, the nude lip can draw stares without going over the top. We suggest our new glamazon™ pure performance 12-hour lipstick in pure.
Last rooftop bash: bright basics by J. Crew; bottom left.
Have one last summer fling with color in eye-catching neons. Make these your centerpiece and wear with soft neutrals, like a perfect white tee, a stack of metallic bangles, and chunky heels.
Beauty partner: Rosy cheeks. Nothing makes you look better than a sweet, natural looking blush. A few swipes of our cheek stain in blissful will do the trick.
