Good morning everyone, today’s post is about styling denim shorts that will make you look put together. Now that Summer is here or if your like me and live in a hot climate then you may practically wear shorts nearly everyday. I know not everybody loves to wear denim shorts but not to worry as there are many other types of shorts you can get your hands on, from Bermuda’s to cycling shorts. Denim shorts are the ultimate weekend staple and the go-to for most of us.
Personally for me I like to mix it up a little with my denim shorts and not go casual all the time. It can get a little tiresome styling the same type of apparel, so with that in mind I have styled my denim shorts for a more put together look.
BLUE DENIM SHORTS & BLAZERS
Right let’s begin with my blue denim shorts which are from Guess. Yes they might be on the shorter side for some of you but I actually don’t mind them being this length. Now one of the easiest ways to style a pair of denim shorts and look put together is by adding a blazer like I have done here. This Ecru coloured blazer is from Zara and this just makes the whole outfit look chic.
I am also wearing my linen oversized shirt with the Peter Pan collar underneath which makes the outfit look sophisticated. I could have just worn the shirt on its own and added a belt to give me that chic French-girl touch. As for what to wear on my feet I opted for a pair of Havianas Flip Fops which is ideal for warmer climates. However, I could have easily paired some cream espadrilles with this look.
WHITE DENIM SHORTS & NAUTICAL STRIPE TOPS
Next and onto a pair of crisp white denim shorts which I would style with a classic nautical stripe top for a weekend getaway. Make sure that the shorts are high waisted and to tuck all the tops in, add some navy espadrilles and a boater hat and you are all set and ready to go!
DENIM PAPER-BAG SHORTS & CRISP WHITE TOPS
Another type of shorts that are popular is the paper-bag style, the tie at the waist adds to the ensemble and gives a flattering silhouette. Now here you can style the paper-bag shorts with a crisp white top. Then add some biker boots for some edge to your look.
LONG SHORTS WITH COLOURFUL SHIRTS/BLOUSES
If the denim shorts are on the shorter side for you then by all means go for the denim Bermuda shorts. Here I would style them with some statement worthy shirts or blouses. Go for those shirts/blouses with voluminous sleeves to add some drama to the outfit. You can also go for a pretty milkmaid style blouse or some colourful ones too as they will look great, my advice would be to stick to one colour, but there is nothing wrong with floral prints if that’s what you choose to wear!
