Aside from sneakers, another one of my obsessions is denim shorts. I have been wearing denim shorts for years, but I recently realized that the obsession is real. They are not just my go-to clothing choice for the summer, but they are also super versatile which is why I like them so much. There are so many ways to style your denim shorts – they can be paired with almost anything and still look good. You can dress them up and dress them down.
How I Found Out My Denim Shorts Obsession Is Real
Having more than one pair of something is fine, but having multiple – that’s kind of pushing towards an obsession in some shape or form if you ask me. But, that’s totally fine. Own up to it – whether it’s a denim shorts obsession or something else. I have at least 20 pairs of denim shorts divided up between my closets in America and Bulgaria. This may seem pointless to some (my mom probably agrees), but each pair of denim shorts has a different style, shade, detail, etc.
I recently discovered that I have an obsession when I was shopping at Zara for more shorts after I knew I had some already in my closet for this summer. That’s cool though, at least now I can tell you guys about some ways to style your denim shorts!
5 Ways to Style Your Denim Shorts
One thing that I like to do if I am ever stuck on what to wear or how to change up a style is to go on Pinterest. Whether you are a male or female, you can always look up style ideas and get inspiration. Here are some of the looks that I found there for denim shorts:
This is a way to dress up your shorts and still look chic despite the casual bottoms. If your office has a less-strict dress code, you can wear this outfit to work or maybe even for a night out! The blazer adds a sophisticated touch to your style.
A Mix of Casual and Cute
A bit dressy and a bit casual, but definitely cute. This outfit has to be one of my favorites because it works for almost any kind of outing!
The Basic Tee and Denim Shorts
If you own denim shorts, you may have fallen victim to this outfit in the past. There is nothing wrong with that! This is something that I generally throw on for an everyday look – to run errands, grab a coffee, etc. You can dress it up with some jewelry or even a high heel!
The Boho-Chic Look
Layers are in and I’m all for it especially since I live by the beach and it can get chilly at night despite the scorching temperatures throughout the day. Adding a cardigan and pairing it with some frayed denim shorts is definitely something I do often and it makes for a cute outfit!
The Graphic Tee
You guys may know that another trend that I am loving is the Graphic Tee Trend. One of my go-to style choices is pairing a graphic tee with some denim shorts. You can mix up the different kinds of shorts and colors with the tees to find a new look every time!
I used to think that I was too old to be wearing denim shorts, but truth be told, there is practically no age limit to this trend and it doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon (thank God). If you have a denim shorts obsession yourself or simply like wearing them, just know that the styling options are endless!
