I never used to be a shorts person. I just didn't have any in my closet. So when the temperature and humidity in New York City would get unbearable, I'd switch to lighter weight pants or a variety of cotton sundresses. But then I discovered silk shorts and everything changed. Dressy and polished, I could pair them with high heeled sandals or an elegant blouse and light jacket, and a whole slew of styling options in the summer opened up. Plus they were so cool and breezy, they'd even survive a stiffling subway commute. If you’re avoiding shorts or stuck in an on-the-weekend-at-the-beach-only rut, click through the slideshow above for ways to incorporate more dressy shorts into your warm weather wardrobe.
