We ran into Leigh Gernert in Cooper-Young and loved her Tory Burch tunic with sequins. So cute!
She wore the tunic with shorts from Old Navy and explained to us how to wear them, admittedly one of the summer's hot trends, for a night out on the town.
"You can wear shorter shorts if you wear a longer top," she said.
We don't know the exact ratio of the shorts to the top, but we think that's a good rule of thumb.
"My dress is from the Gap about 10 years ago and the sash is from the Limited, from about 12 years ago."

"We recently saw Oceans 13, and that was our inspiration. Fresh to death. She picked everything out."

One of summer’s most popular looks is short shorts and lots of leg. And 22-year-old Rebecca Casad, who we caught up with in Cooper-Young, does it well with a BCBG top, beaded necklace, and gladiator heels by Ann Taylor.
Of the shoes she says, “I definitely wanted to show these with shorts.”
"My shorts are from Forever Young. The top is from Old Navy, but I got it at a Switch and Bitch [for the uninitiated, where a bunch of people get together and trade clothes]. I just got these boots from my sister and I wanted to wear them.
And I'm in the roller derby now, so I wanted to show off my legs."
