13 Outfit Ideas When Shorts Are All You Want to Wear

Avery Matera

If you’re a fan of shorts, we’re guessing you have a full arsenal of the summertime staple ready at your beck and call. Once that temperature gauge reads about 60º, your stems are out and about in full-legged glory. The only problem is that styling the same type of apparel can get tiresome, as you are less and less inspired to venture past your go-to looks for morning, noon, and night. With summer nearly upon us, it’s time to bust out of the mold and add a few more shorts outfits to the rotation.

We’ve got something for everyone: the denim-cutoffs lovers, those who are loving shorts suits right now, and more still who love tailored bottoms that aren’t pants or miniskirts. This summer, allow us to inspire a few other shorts outfits that you’re sure to fall in love with. We’re styling ours with silk camisoles, mixing the denim pairs with tailored blazers, and trying a more nighttime-appropriate look on for size as well. Scroll through our favorites.
