10 Shorts That Every Girl Must Have In Her Summer Wardrobe!
Just last weekend, when my friends dropped by for a house party, my bestie exclaimed rather seriously: “Life would be so much cooler in a nudist society!” In that very moment, I swear to God every woman present nodded in agreement like true blue sorority sisters.
I mean with the number of layers we wear in this heat, intimates et al, that literally would be a dream come true. But alas, that’s not going to happen anytime soon. So we shall just accept our fate and be thankful for good old shorts instead. It’s just the kind of garment you want to wear this season. So I’ve culled out some cool shorts that every girl should add to her wardrobe this summer.
1. FLORAL SHORTS
Be it bold botanicals or ditsy flower prints, a floral pair is what summer days are all about. As for how to go about this black floral print, team it with a white crop top, lace up flats and a tan saddle bag.
2. SUSPENDER SHORTS
I love a tartan print: it’s got such a back-to-school vibe. Keep it just that way with a peter-pan collar top and a pair of loafers, or style it with a crop top to add a punk vibe!
Want something that looks serious yet chic? A pair of skorts is the answer. It looks like a skirt from the front but is actually a pair of shorts. Wear it with a graphic tee and add a summer jacket if you want, or just team it with a white button-down shirt.
4. LACE SHORTS
If you’re looking for something more feminine, lace shorts are it! And I think this beige pick is ideal for summer. Work a plain round-neck tee with this pair and cinch your waist with a tan belt. Or you could team it up with an olive-hued, loose, button-down shirt and a pair of ankle straps for a perfect summer look. Another cool addition with this pair would be a chambray shirt.
5. PLEATED SHORTS
Anything pleated is a yes from me! Here’s a pair that’s super chic and fun. If it’s a sporty look you want, just add a jersey tee and a pair of high-top sneakers to the ensemble. To keep a sleek look, team it with a white tank top.
6. STRIPED SHORTS
This pair from Mango is chic and sophisticated. Team it with a white plunging neckline tee and add a lightweight summer jacket in a similar print. Trust me, you’ll be a head turner.
7. FRINGED SHORTS
If boho chic is your calling, a fringed pair is what your wardrobe demands this summer. Wear with a body suit and layer it with a summer cape for a festival-friendly feel.
8. THE LONG SHORTS
While a lot of people think shorts aren’t appropriate for work, a long line version like this Koovs piece is perfect for your nine-to-five grind. I particularly love the bow belt detailing. Team it with a printed top and ballet flats for a chic look.
9. DENIM SHORTS
Denim fever never fades away. Distressed, ripped, stone-washed, whatever it may be, a pair of denim ones is a must-have. Add a cami top and a pair of slip-on sandals and you’re ready for a Saturday coffee run. If you’re among the bold ones, wear it with a long shirt and undo the last three buttons. You can also team it with a denim shirt for some denim-on-denim action!
10. HIGH-WAIST SHORTS
I love a pair of high-waist shorts, they’re just so sassy! Opt for a houndstooth print and stick to the monochrome theme by adding a white crop top. In case, you’re tired of a black and white look, opt for a bright, solid hue for some colourblocked style.
