15 Outfit Ideas for When Shorts Are All You Want to Wear

·3 min read

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. With summer 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 much more. Scroll through our favorites.
