Stuff We Love for August

Gwyneth Paltrow and Amanda Seyfried

Wearing shorts at night

You’ve seen pics of celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Amanda Seyfried wearing them, and now it’s your turn. Not convinced? We’ve got a few genius reasons why:

1. Shorts have all the leg-baring sexiness of a skirt, minus the worry that it’ll fly up and show your thong.

2. It’s a great way to get more mileage out of your summer wardrobe (and totally justify your purchase of a new pair).

3. Even when this trend fades away, you can still wear your shorts during the day, so you won’t feel like a fashion victim for jumping on board.

4. It makes that whole day-to-night transition way easy: just throw a blazer or cardigan over your shorts and shirt, swap your flip flops for heels and you’re good to go.
