While shorts are fairly casual, it doesn't mean they are ONLY for casual wear. A recent trend of short suits show that shorts can be chic bottoms to wear. This blog post showcases dressy and chic shorts looks. They range from chic looks to short suits and more. It is a chance for me to showcase other bloggers who show that you CAN wear shorts and look chic/classy/cute all the while.
So before I begin, I just want to remind you that this blog post concerns only dressy looks and dressy shorts. So do NOT expect to see any denim jean shorts or any seriously casual non-denim shorts.
LATEST UPDATE(S)/REVISION(S):JUN 14 2012 - added two more inspirations, edited spelling errors
--- Chic Shorts: A Recent Fondness ---Here is a video look at a trend I've recently become fond of:

For some reason, I've somehow loved the combination of a blazer with some chic short shorts (not denim jean short shorts, mind you). The common mindset is that all shorts are casual and can't possibly be made chic. Almost as if shorts are off-limits, leaving some to only wear dresses or skirt outfits (as far as leg-bearing garments are concerned). Recent times have shown that shorts are just as dressy as any skirt look or any dress look. Some shorts are stylish enough to be worn with various chic garments or even for a night out.
I often love females wear a cute pair of cuffed twill or wool short shorts. Those alone are good enough for even semi-formal looks. Certain linen shorts can be just as stylish to wear. But really, linen is almost undeniably casual. My preference in this blog post mostly pertains to classy short shorts, so I'm not going to discuss Bermuda shorts. I just don't really like feminine long shorts as much as I do short shorts.
So you have a little insight on chic pairs of shorts.
