Chic, light, comfortable, and perfect for the balmy summer season! Do we need more reasons to love shorts? If you’ve been looking for inventive ways to style shorts from your closet, read on.
Embrace The Versatility Of Denim Shorts
Denim shorts are ubiquitous and are now a fashion staple. The best part about denim shorts is that they lend themselves to a variety of tops, from off-shoulder to crop tops. They can also be worn during cooler days when paired with leggings or boots.
Style tip: Pair distressed blue denim shorts with a black tee tucked in for a casual day out with friends. If the air gets slightly colder in the evenings, you can pair it with a loose cardigan.
Up Your Style Quotient With Paper Bag Shorts
The paper bag waist is a favourite among fashionistas, given its ability to flatter a wide range of body types. With its high, cinched waist, it especially looks good on hourglass and pear-shaped body types. To balance this look, its important to always tuck in any top you’re wearing to show off the pants.
Style tip: Elevate your street style by teaming striped linen shorts with classic white tee and sneakers. You can also pair them with a one-shoulder top and heels to create a show-stealing look for a brunch party.
Go The Cool And Comfy Route With Cotton Shorts
Cotton shorts are perfect for an active summer day. Made from cotton or linen, they will keep you cool during the harsh summer. These shorts are especially useful if you’re planning to undertake activities during the summer such as hiking.
Style tip: Pair coral shorts with a sleeveless striped top in the same colour for a fun, vibrant look. Flipflops are the perfect footwear for this look, but you might want to wear sneakers if you have any activities planned.
Up Your Formal Game With Tailored Shorts
For a more formal, put-together look, tailored shorts are your best bet. They can be paired with a formal shirt for a great semi-formal look. To take the look from AM to PM, layer a semi-formal blazer in the same shade and swap your work shoes with pumps and a clutch bag.
Style tip: Pair navy blue shorts with a red floral top for a night out with friends after work. Pair it with silver heels and a sequined clutch to complete your look!
Go The Skorts Way For A Laid-Back Look
Is it a skirt? Is it a pair of shorts? Say hello to ‘skorts’. This stylishly quirky silhouette is actually a pair of shorts with a flap layered over them, giving it a skirt-like appearance. This stylish looks lends itself well to a number of occasions, whether you’re going on a road trip with friends or for a summer party.
Style tip: Wear a light green checkered skort with a black top for an easygoing, laid-back day with friends. If you’re planning on going for a party, all you need to go to switch it up is wear a black choker necklace with a pair of black heels.
