New to following? At Any Age is a monthly series where I share inspiration on how to style certain trends, pieces and/or share ideas for what to wear for specific events, holidays, or occasions for every age group. While my Under $100 series and One Piece, Four Ways series are both budget-friendly, my At Any Age series is aspirational and often features investment pieces from contemporary and designer labels.

This month’s focus is a reader request from a poll I did on Instagram Stories awhile back! With Memorial Day and the official start of summer right around the bend (not to mention hotter-than-hot temps in Texas!), shorts are likely a staple in your wardrobe or on your shopping list this time of year. While many think of shorts as a daytime piece, if you style them right they can transition effortlessly to nighttime wear too! My best tip for styling shorts at night? Avoid super high heels – choose a low or mid-level heel (like the options in the collage) to elevate your shorts look instead of sky-high stilettos or wedges. There’s something about sky high heels and shorts that looks a little tacky to me.

Since all of the shorts in this collage are an investment, I’ve rounded up some additional styles for less below:
