Sometimes it’s the little touches that take your outfit from average to enviable. Celebrities have stylists to calculate all the complicated nuances of putting together a look, but we aren’t all so fortunate. Luckily, tFS has put together some celeb-inspired styling tips and tricks to help you give your look that extra oomph! This week, stars show you three inspired ways to wear this summer’s hottest bottom, the high-waisted short.

Tip #1: Freida Pinto’s Pin-Up Style


Freida Pinto heated up last month’s Glamour cover in a pin-up-inspired bra top and high-waisted shorts combo by Peter Som. At this point, celebs have proved that crop tops are here to stay—at least for the season—and the chicest way to bare it all in a bra top is by balancing its skimp with a ladylike high-waisted short in a sweet floral pattern like Pinto’s. The Slumdog Millionaire actress topped off her look with beachy waves. Not a beach babe? Achieve waves with a texturizing hair mist.

1. Topshop Gingham Pleated Crop Top – $40;  2. Forever 21 Scattered Floral Shorts – $15.80;  3.  Fekkai 'Marine Summer Hair' Beach Waves – $24;  4. Pins and Needles Cropped Bustier Top – $49


Tip #2: Set Sail in Nautical Shorts Like Liv Tyler


Liv Tyler looked ship-shape on the streets of NYC in blue sailor shorts and a jaunty Breton stripe tee. Nautical is a trend that doesn’t look like it’s setting sail any time soon, so salute Tyler’s style in a pair of high-waisted sailor shorts paired with stripes and leather sandals.

1. Milly Cotton-Jaquard Sailor Shorts – $215;   2. Kain Label Sand/Heather Striped S/S Tee – $75;   3. Hoy Salt Water Sandal – $39


Tip #3: Look White-Hot in Leather Like Mollie King


Leather shorts might seem like a piece only the girlfriend of a Hell’s Angel could pull off, but try the trendy fabric in white, tuck in a chiffon top, and you’ve got a stylish way to wear shorts as eveningwear à la Mollie King. The Saturdays singer emphasized the waist of her white River Island leather shorts with a tan skinny belt and peeptoe pumps.

1. Topshop White Seamed Premium Leather Shorts – $50;   2. American Apparel Chiffon Tee – $45;   3. Warehouse Vintage Look Leather Skinny Belt – $20.69;   4. Jenni Kayne Leather Pleat Short – $497;
