If you're going for a femme look, top the shorts with a blouse in a whimsical floral print. Finish with statement earrings and textured wedges for a vacation–ready night–out ensemble.
Sometimes, more is more. An off&ndahs;the–shoulder blouse with voluminous bell sleeves and a brightly embellished straw tote are ideal for a Labor Day BBQ outift your fellow party–goers won't soon forget.
Pair the shorts with a striped tee and neutral heeled sandals for a look that's perfect for the coat. A purse in a fun pattern (or two) adds a bit of interest.
