Shorts are a summer wardrobe must have, even if it can feel like there aren’t enough hot days to wear them in the UK. When the hottest days do come around, I like to make the most of my summer clothes, and my shorts are always a go-to for me. They’re a simple, casual item that can be styled easily and in lots of ways and, like skirts, I tend to go for denim shorts as they’re very versatile. I wanted to share two different ways I style shorts for the summer to create casual, daytime looks, perfect for a summer outing!
For my first outfit, I wanted to style these white shorts from Forever 21 that I bought a long time ago and haven’t worn much. The shorts are a really nice fit and are quite loose, so I definitely want to try wearing them more. The material is comfortable and lightweight, so the shorts are ideal for a really hot day. I paired the shorts with a floral print, tie-front top and black sandals, both from New Look, as I think the patterned top contrasts nicely with the shorts. The sandals are comfy for walking around in too, so this outfit would be perfect to wear for going on a day trip on a sunny day.
My second outfit includes a summer wardrobe staple – blue denim shorts. These shorts are from Pull&Bear and I like that they fit well and aren’t too short. Denim shorts really do go with just about anything, and I have no difficulty styling these with lots of different tops and shoes in my wardrobe. Here, I kept the outfit really simple and styled the shorts with a white t-shirt from Miss Selfridge and light pink trainers, also from Pull&Bear. This is a quick and easy outfit to throw on when I can’t decide what to wear, and the trainers are ideal for long walks and daytime adventures.
I want to make the most of my shorts this summer, especially these two pairs as they’re both so versatile. I think restyling items that I’ve had for a long time is better than buying something new, and I’m glad I’ve been able to make these shorts work for me in different, summery outfits.
