You must have heard fashion editors say you can’t wear shorts with high heels. In fact, they keep saying this is one of the 5 biggest faux pas in fashion. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they are entirely wrong, but they are forgetting about these one type of shorts that go perfectly with high heels. Luckily I’m here to give you right and finally show you that shorts and how to style them with high heels to get bonus points from the fashion police.
BUT CAN I WEAR SHORTS WITH HIGH HEELS?
No doubt, the question can I wear heels with shorts is trading on google these days. Especially since so many fashion editors say you can’t wear heels with shorts. But they keep forgetting to add what kind of shorts you can’t style with high heels. Yes, if a slight doubt came into your mind when you read about that rule, you were right. You can’t generalise shorts when it comes to this.
The thing is that most of the fashion editors think about the bike shorts when this question pops out this season. You know those tight shorts that end just above the knees and are the most fashionable this season? Well, you certainly can’t wear any kind of high heels with bike shorts. We have seen few celebrities trying to pull off that look with kitten heels and not to say anything more, it simply didn’t look good. PS. Go here to see what celebrity wore bike shorts with heels right and how
So yes, that is why we now keep reading about this no high heels rule when it comes to the shorts. Even so, as said before there is one exception. One type of shorts you can wear with the high heels. And guess what? These shorts happen to be one of my favourites on the go items every single summer. Yes, they are a classic piece too.
THE ONLY SHORTS YOU CAN WEAR WITH HIGH HEELS
So what shorts you can actually wear with high heels? Well, after seeing all those photos above you already know. But repeating it, just in case you are listing to Siri reading this text while you are driving to your work (ps. you shouldn’t wear shorts to work).
The only shorts that can pass the high heels rule are these shorts that I’m wearing with my summer outfit on the go. It’s the loose silk shorts that look like a mini skirt.
Ps. I’m answering whether you can, or you can’t wear high heels with a mini skirt the next time. Yes, there is something about mini skirts and heels too.
But first more about this summer look that I’m wearing here and more tips on how to style your new silk shorts with high heels.
Since 2018 is the year of the shorts (remember I wrote about this in my SS Fashion Report here), finding a silky pair of shorts shouldn’t be difficult at all. Well, I got these few years ago so you can’t actually find the same silk shorts in the store anymore, but here are the similar ones. By the way, have you seen how I wore these shorts with sneakers on my summer getaway to the seaside town Piran last year? Check here!

Undoubtedly, the silk short and sneakers combination looks chic too, but this outfit is still one of my summer’s favourites. And they told you that you shouldn’t wear high heels with shorts when heels actually make this outfit even more elegant.
Nevertheless, there is one thing about the high heels I need to mention first before we head on to the blazer. The best heels to wear with your shorts are actually this season’s most fashionable pumps, the plexi pumps. I’m wearing Gianvito Rossi plexi pumps (shop here, and go here to see all the times I wore these heels).
LOOKING FOR SANDALS YOU COULD WEAR WITH ALMOST ANY SHORTS?
Or if you want to play it safe while looking more summer-ready, the block mid heeled sandals. In fact, block midi sandals go with any shorts. But denim shorts and bike shorts, of course. My choice, in this case, would be these Stuart Weitzman sandals or these Gianvito Rossi sandals. If you are looking for slightly more affordable but so similar sandals, then be sure to check my summer 2018 shoe shopping list over here. I added so many different sandals to my shopping list.
Now seriously, I’m wearing pumps and a blazer because we don’t have much of the summer in Ljubljana. It keeps raining these days, so another layer is a must. Plus, a blazer elevates the shorts. As long as it’s not a linen blazer. Explaining why the next time. So far you don’t need to know nothing else but where to get a similar white blazer. Mine is from Juicy Couture, same as these silk shorts that I’m wearing. And yes, that Juicy Couture. Sadly, they don’t have a white blazer in store now.
But my other favourite brand, Escada, does. Shop here. By the way, you were asking me about my favourite brands on Instagram. I answered that question and shared a list of my favourite brands there. So be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the list. You can also ask me a question in my insta story. Every Wednesday!
MORE SHORTS AND MORE SUMMER LOOKS
Now you know! There is a way to wear high heels with shorts too. All you need is silk shorts and the right heels, and you are good to go. And believe me, no fashion police will give you a bad mark if you wear shorts with high heels like I did this time. Especially not if you wear this chic summer outfit for a Sunday brunch. But don’t wear it for work. We wear this for work now. By the way, what shoes do you wear with shorts? High heels, flats, midi-block heels or sneakers?
