Shorts are a cute and comfortable addition to the outfits to wear during the summer. They are casual and perfect for the warm weather. However, styling shorts is tricky. Here are 5 steps that can guide you on how you can style your shorts the right way.
Select the right kind of shorts
The most popular kind of shorts people wear during the summer is denim shorts. They are cute and they look great with almost any coloured top. However, those are not the only type of shorts out there.
Shorts can come in different colours, patterns and lengths. In fact, there are shorts for almost every occasion. What you need to take note of the most is whether your shorts are comfortable.
Choose a suitable top
When it comes to choosing the right top to complement your shorts, there are so many options out there.
You can style your shorts with a t-shirt, like your slogan tees. You can fly your t-shirt over your shorts or tuck them in to accentuate your waist. This is particularly suitable if you have an hourglass figure.
Crop tops are another option you can go for when styling your shorts. However, crop tops are not for everyone. You need to make sure that you’re in shape before you wear them.
An unbuttoned white or baby blue shirt also looks amazing with shorts. It adds a lot of definition to your outfit. A long-sleeved shirt helps to balance your outfit out.
Play around with layering
Your outfit doesn’t only look great when you throw a cute top over your shorts. There’s so much you can get from your outfit when you play around with the right kind of layers.
You may think that just because the weather is hot you can’t add a piece of clothing over your top. The layers can help to add some contrast to your outfit and also give your ensemble some balance. Since your shorts are obviously short, you can layer it with something longer to balance it out.
Layer your top with a long light jacket, blazer, kimono or even replace your top with a long-sleeved shirt. The length of the sleeves will balance out the shortness of your shorts.
Define your shorts with the right shoes
What kind of shoes go with a pair of shorts? For a casual look, ankle strap sandals would make a great fit especially if you’re wearing denim shorts and they are perfect for the summer. Another casual option is a pair of sneakers for your shorts. To add a little class you can put on your favourite high-heeled shoes.
Finish it off with alluring accessories
An outfit is not complete without the right kind of accessories. First up is a belt. Most people don’t use a belt for their shorts. It really isn’t compulsory that you should wear a belt, but it could work as a good addition. Another set of accessories to style your shorts is a long necklace over your top to put emphasis on your shorts and a nice clutch purse.
