How to style a pair of jeans short in 3 looks
Summer wouldn’t be summer if you didn’t have a pair of jean shorts in your wardrobe! They’re comfortable, versatile and no matter what year it is – always on trend. But despite their appeal, styling cut-offs in a chic and sophisticated way can actually be surprisingly difficult. For those not in their teens, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re even avoiding jean shorts – in fear of looking completely inappropriate. But that shouldn’t be the case! A great pair of denim shorts goes hand in hand with sacred knowledge on how to wear them. Knowing what works and what doesn’t will help you on your way to becoming totally stylish.
First and foremost, unless you work in an office with a super relaxed vibe, save the jean shorts for an out of hours look. If you’re in need of inspiration, take a look at my top 3 examples of how you can rock your own denim!

Chic night out
For those who think jean shorts can only be worn casually, in the backyard or on vacation, think again! Here’s a look that says otherwise. Yes, you can totally dress up denim to look suitable for a night out. As seen in this first look, why not choose a floaty black top and white blazer to add an elegant touch to the summer staple. Pair with romantic lace open-toed shoes to be utterly on trend.
Your beachside look is sorted with this outfit! Style your denim shorts with another of summer’s hottest trends – the ruffle top. This yellow sheer option is romantic, comfortable and stylish, all at the same time! Focus on your accessories to really make a statement. These brown leather platform sandals are summer vacation essentials and why not to add a straw bag as well?!
Finally, this third look is centered around a fashion trend that some may shy away from, but you seriously shouldn’t… double denim! This denim button down shirt is a wardrobe staple in its own right, but once paired with jean shorts, creates the ultimate summer ensemble. Opt for converse or tennis shoes for an everyday look that you’ll look and feel amazing in!
