How To Style Denim Shorts

Cropped top

Summer is perfect for trying out new outfits; experiment with some shorter tops, or give an old top a new lease of life by shortening it. I recently did this to a long Adidas top, I simply cut around three inches off, making it ideal for the warmer months and also giving the top a new look with a cut off edge. You can dress this look up with some heeled sandals and a clutch and a thick belt, or forget the accessories and still rock a simplistic yet stylish outfit.

Top – Topshop

For this look, I added a thin white belt by New Look to match the top and was impressed with the edge it added to the look! This was actually just a thrown-together outfit for an evening of sightseeing, but I loved how comfy it was, especially when paired with my Superdry sliders!

This look is a total bargain; I bought the shorts for around £12 a few years back and have worn them countless times. In addition, the top was on the sales rack in New Look and I was so happy to bag it at only £6.

Accessory wise, I threw on a grey headband and a red belt to simply add a splash of colour to the outfit.

Tucked in tee

This looks super cute and is arguably more comfy than wearing a cropped top, plus you can leave it tucked in or loose for a subtler look. Even better, who doesn’t have a selection of cute oversized tees that feel great on and look good with denim shorts? You can use everything that’s already in your wardrobe for this look!

This outfit was perfect for a sunny day on the beach – plus, the pastel colours work well together and the pattern of the top means no accessories at all were required.

Accessories

I almost always wear a belt with denim shorts as I feel it pulls off the look properly and adds a little bit to the outfit; plus there are so many colours and designs! There are so many cute accessories you can do to add something to denim shorts, so have some fun and try out a different combo. Mix and match the colours to add a bit of colour to your outfit!
