There's no other wardrobe staple that has "summer" written all over it than a pair of shorts. And while we love our worn-in destroyed cut-offs for helping us through a musical festival or two, they aren't exactly the chicest option in the bunch. Meet the slouchy short—a longer silhouette that's both comfortable and stylish.

In the next installment of our 3-Stylin' video series, take a look at three ways to style the pair. Dress it up with an embellished tank for an evening out, play it cool and laid-back with a striped tee (perfect for when you're on vacation), or turn it into a shorts suit with a crisp blazer and shirt for an office-friendly vibe. Watch the video (above) and shop our similar looks, below.
