We love a dress as much as the next girl, but it’s always nice to have a warm weather go-to that feels a little less girly. Which is why we can’t wait to start wearing the new city shorts that were all over the runways for spring. The hemline hits between the mid-thigh and the knee, and the fit is loose but structured, making them perfect for everything from the office to an evening out. Read on for three great ways to style them.
