How to Style Denim Shorts

A good pair of denim shorts is an absolute must-have. And not just our go-to summer savior either – denim shorts can level up any outfit all year round. Whether it’s off-duty vibes or full going ‘out’ out attire, there’s a pair of denim shorts for every occasion. But finding the perfect pair can be tricky – and like most staple wardrobe pieces, it’s sometimes a matter of trial and error to find a pair that not only look fab, but feel super comfy too. Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite styles so you don’t have to…

Whatever your vibe, whether you’re more of a vintage mom-jean style short or a super short and distressed rips kinda gal, here’s a few ways to style your denim shorts for an effortlessly cool aesthetic.


Casual wear

If you’re rocking a pair of denim shorts for casual wear or everyday wear then style them with a slouchy oversized boyfriend tee and a pair of fresh white trainers. This kind of outfit is fool-proof and will have you feeling super comfy and glam all day long. For warmer weather days, pair your shorts with a slinky bodysuit or crop top and layer with a checked oversized shirt that you can throw on or off.

Going ‘out’ out

Denim shorts don’t just belong in our casual ‘drobes. For a super glam vibe, style a pair of bleach wash denim shorts with a crop top or cropped cardi, some strappy heels and a statement clutch or shoulder bag. For cooler temps, throw an oversized blazer over your shoulders for a chic layered look. This is the perfect ‘fit for a night out with your best girls or a boujee dinner date with bae.

For a daytime look, style a pair of slouchy denim shorts over the top of your bikini or swimsuit for drinks by the pool or beach. In the evening, pair with a fresh white crop top or white bodysuit to enhance the look of your sun-kissed skin.
