3 Ways To Wear | Denim Shorts


I have to be completely honest and admit that I'm not usually a fan of shorts! I own about two or three pairs but they're not something that I would automatically reach towards when the sun comes out. After a beautiful bank holiday weekend here in England and a summer wardrobe sort out and switch over, I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could not only wear some shorts but if I could style them three ways too. Read on to check out how I did....

 Weekday
For the weekday look, I stuck to classic nautical colours; white, navy and red as they are so easy to wear and put together if you don't have much time. The fluted sleeves on the top give an updated take on the tried and tested Breton t-shirt and the red espadrilles give a pop of colour as well as comfort for walking around. I've completed the look with a sunhat (optimistic) and some RayBan Wayfarers. 

Weekend
For the weekend look, I've stuck to quite casual items such as the super-soft grey and white tasseled t-shirt from H&M and some American flag patterned Toms which are great for just slipping on if you're in a hurry. I've styled the look with some gold aviators and a tan coloured bucket bag but a large tote or even a canvas bag would be good for some weekend shopping trips.

Weeknight
For the weeknight look, I wanted to dress up the shorts a little which was quite hard for me as I always think of them as a casual piece! However, I think that they look much more glamorous when styled with this beautiful lace bardot top and a statement necklace. I've added some blush and rose gold sandals but low heels or wedges would also work well.

How would you style denim shorts?

  17. I used to be a fan of short actually, but since I got chubbier I`m more of a skirt person. Combo number one is my favourite, that`s how I used to style my shorts all the time.

  21. I love your stylish inspiration here, girlie! It's often with the basic pieces in our wardrobe that we can get stumped with how to wear them in a way that's fresh and new, so finding inspo is very much needed and appreciated. I love all three outfit ideas and the button details on your pair. Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great week!
