Before I start, allow me to greet you all a Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful celebration at home - it was the first time that we got to celebrate Christmas Eve at our new home. Hope you had a blast just like we did! I am going to share this pre-scheduled post with you while I gorge on leftover food from last night. #sorrynotsorry

I've always been of the opinion that red and leopard is a classic combo! I am therefore drawn to this pairing and it never gets old for me. The vibrant red with the statement leopard print is a nice way to elevate a simple look, such as this one that pairs a simple V-neck shirt from Shein with shorts from Choies.

Even though shorts are known as casual items, there are plenty of ways to dress it up. Dressing up shorts is definitely easier than you think, and you don't always have to pair it with heels just so you can elevate the style. If you're like me who hates wearing high heels all the time, listen up to these tips.

My first idea is to pair the look with statement earrings. In this outfit, I am wearing my blue tassel earrings from Adia Kibur. Do not be afraid to make a big statement with your earrings! Even when you are wearing a simple top (like I did here), don't hold back when it comes to your earrings because this will add that style statement you need.

Another way to dress up your shorts is to add some sparkle. In this case, I used my metallic clutch from CNDirect to add a layer of sparkle. I'm sure you can find a dressy clutch in your closet somewhere so add that into your outfit for an unexpected detail. Aside from your clutch, you can also add other sparkly accessories to complement your shorts outfit (such as a belt or blazer).
