A classic summer staple, a pair of shorts are both stylish and practical. You don’t need to worry about the wind destroying your modesty, but you are still able to show off your summer tan.
There are so many different ways to wear a pair of shorts. We have gathered together some of the most fashionable Instagrammers to show you just how versatile this piece of clothing can be. Keep reading to find out more.
1. Keep It Casual With Denim
Nearly everyone has a pair of denim shorts in their wardrobe. We love how YouTuber and Blogger Fleur has styled this gorgeous frayed pair.
She keeps it casual with a laid back t-shirt and low-heeled nude boots.
She prevents the outfit from being too simple by adding jewellery, sunglasses and an embellished waist belt. This is the perfect look for all those festivals coming up.
Steal Fleur’s sunglasses look with the Celine CL 41392/S. We love the gorgeous rose gold tinted mirror lenses and the matching rose gold frames.
The aviator style and double bridge detailing is bang on trend, and would be the perfect addition to any summer outfit.
2. Jazz It Up With Glitter
Fashion Instagrammer Eva Chen demonstrates perfectly how to wear shorts on a night out.
If you really want to stand out, then you can’t go wrong with a bit of glitter. Eva makes sure the shorts are the stand-out piece in the outfit, so keeps the rest of the look simple with a plain white tee and minimal heels.
If you’re a bit nervous about the glitter trend, then start with a pair of black or silver glitter shorts, before venturing into brighter colours.
3. Keep It Easy With A Jumpsuit
If you want the ultimate easy to wear summer look, then you can’t go far wrong with a jumpsuit.
These pieces incorporate shorts and a top into one outfit, the perfect item to fling on whilst on holiday when you don’t want to think about what to wear.
We love fashionista Vivian’s gorgeous feminine jumpsuit with pretty pom pom detailing. Jumpsuits can be worn during the day with some simple sandals, but look stunning teamed with some heels, as Vivian demonstrates here.
4. Go Feminine With Soft Detailing
Here fashion Instagrammer Kendall demonstrates just how beautifully feminine a pair of shorts can look.
To achieve this look keep the colour scheme muted, in colours such as white, nude, soft pink and silver. We adore the shorts in this outfit, with their paper-bag waist giving a flattering silhouette and the soft flowing fabric creating an added sense of glamour.
Keep it glam with some gorgeous jeweled heels, as Kendall has done here.
5. Pair With A Maxi Cover-Up
Wearing shorts, you can sometimes feel a little exposed. One way to protect your modesty and look super stylish at the same time is to team your mini-shorts with a maxi length cover-up.
We love how fashion blogger Korin Avraham teams a pair of smart tailored shorts with a sheer maxi cape.
It looks super elegant and ladylike, whilst adding an element of ‘wow’ to the look. You could also wear a sheer maxi dress or a maxi-length cardigan to get the same effect.
