My friend Melody wears shorts a lot, but she dresses them up with fancy tops and heels and always looks amazing. She also has legs for days and it's hard not to hate her sometimes.

But then I see Lauren Conrad dressing up shorts and she's not as tall as Melody.

Hmm...we can all do it. And InStyle magazine shows us how to get the look for less.

--The key is to dress the shorts up with a blouse that has movement. A bold pattern also works well. 

--It's best if the shorts are in a dark fabric that is not denim. And also good if the shorts aren't skin tight.

--Then add heels, or a fancy flat.

--Don't forget to accessorize -- the more you glam it up with something like a chunky and sparkly bracelet and matching ring, the better.

--Dramatic nail polish makes it funky.
