How To Style Denim Shorts 5 Different Ways

Denim shorts are a summer essential and something that I’m sure 99% of us have in our closets. The styles are constantly changing and I find myself liking different styles, washes and fits from one year to the next. Last summer, the Abercrombie High Rise Dad Shorts were my go-to. I was newly postpartum and loved the button fly to help hold my tummy in, and the length was really good too. This year, I think I’m liking the 4 inch High Rise Mom Shorts a little bit more. They’re slightly more fitted, still high waisted and still not too short. I’ve worn them so much already, so thought it would be helpful to share some easy ways that you can style them. I promise you’ll get so much use out of them!

Look 1: Summer Concert Vibes

Pair any oversized graphic/band tee with a pair of white cowboy boots! Front tuck the shirt for a more fitted and less baggy look. The boots will elevate the whole look more than a pair of a white sneakers!

Look 2: Summer Brunchin

I love a tie shoulder or flowy top in the summer, but you’re not limited to just wearing with jeans! Choose once that isn’t too cropped to wear with your shorts and then add a short pair of white booties or sandals for a cute daytime look.

Layer an oversized button down over a tank and pair your shorts, sneakers, and a hat for a quick and easy outfit for when you’re on the go.

Look 5: Date Night

Adding a tighter tank or bodysuit with your shorts will make the whole look seem a little more polished and put together. Layer some necklaces over the high tank and pair with heels, a cute bag and a slicked back bun for a summer evening look.
