As a Summer staple, we reserve the right to wear our shorts constantly from June through August, and as much of September as we can get away with. But while more typically we're turning to our shorter bottoms for beach days and BBQs, we're newly inspired to dress them up, thanks to these five celebrity examples. Between Katie Cassidy giving hers a breezy-chic spin for an event, Nicky Hilton styling hers up for a night out, and Kourtney Kardashian showing off a work-appropriate pair — there's more than a few ways to show off your stems in this summery staple. Click through to get inspired by the rest of our celebrity crew, then shop their looks.
