Welcome back ladies!! I wanted to do a quick post today on my best tips for wearing shorts. As I get into my late twenties, I feel weirder and weirder about wearing really short denim shorts! Not to mention they aren’t always the most flattering. With that being said, it just gets too hot to try and eliminate them altogether. So if you’re like me and want to see my styling tips, read on!
Tips For Wearing Shorts
- High-waisted or drawstring loose shorts are your best bet. They don’t ride up like denim ones and you can dress them up or down.
- Layer, layer, layer. If you still really love your denim and want to look a little more put together, try layering with a vest. This is my favorite way to wear them. Occasionally I’ll wear a high-low top underneath the vest to get a little more coverage on the backside but I’ll still be able see the cute shorts from the front. Vests even look really cute with drapey ones and can make them look less like pajamas. I linked the ones I’m loving right now below!
- Try the boyfriend trend. When denim shorts meet the boyfriend trend, they become much looser and slightly longer than your typical cutoffs. This is such a great option!! I haven’t found the perfect pair for me yet, but I’m definitely planning on wearing this option this summer! Besides the longer length and looser fit, there’s a chicness about the boyfriend cut that you can’t beat.
- Be careful with pairings on loose, drapey shorts. I’m absolutely loving this pair and they look so similar to the ones I’m wearing in the photo! These types of shorts can be tricky since they might look like pajamas. Pairing them with just a t-shirt doesn’t seem to work for me and doesn’t help the pajama issue lol. But, when I pair them with a bodysuit and a vest, or a longer lightweight sweater with a slim fitting camisole, they’re so much more wearable. I’m also really really tempted to snag this pair from Vici! How cute! Notice how she wears them with a girly, ruffled top? She dressed them up so well!
