While the Sun's Still Out

Let's enjoy the sunny, hot weather while we can. Our sundresses, espadrilles and tank tops do not exactly make the perfect wardrobe for the rainy days to come.

Here is another piece of clothing that won't be here for long -- sporty knit short shorts. They're adorable and very comfy. Here are a few ways you can wear them before you'll have to trade them in for sweatpants.

Avoid looking trashy by pairing your knit shorts with a sleeveless top, or a sleeveless hoodie over your tube or tank top. You have to strike a balance since you're already going to have a lot of leg exposure.

Horizontal stripes can make you look wider, but if the length of the top is longer and the fit is not too tight and not too loose, it can definitely work. This rugby shirt would look great with short shorts.

For breezy nights on the beach, a stretch cotton hoodie with your shorts is the perfect sexy-sporty outfit. It can work as a bikini cover-up, too.

Finish off these outfits with sneakers, trainers or your favorite pair of slippers. (I didn't mean for that to rhyme.) Now I'm going to stop ranting about how the summer is ending so soon and get my butt into one of those shorts!
