Women’s Denim Shorts
Nothing is more effortless than a well-cut short. This season we look to denim, linen, stripes and prints in relaxed, fitted, high-waisted and skort silhouettes.
No matter what the hottest trends are from one summer to the next, there’s at least one clothing item that will forever remain a staple in the warmer seasons: a trusty pair of denim shorts. It goes with practically everything and has become something of an unspoken neutral. The style, be it of the slouchy cutoff or cleanly tailored variety, is imbued with the languid nature of warm, casual, carefree days. Whatever your preference – be it white, black, or blue high, mid or low waisted – the aim is to discover a style that you’ll want to cherish for many seasons to come. How to style denim shorts? White is a classic summer hue and a shade that can be incorporated into an outfit in many ways. Style your white denim shorts with a fitted black tank, matching white slides, and a black mini handbag for a simple yet sophisticated look that works for either a beachside brunch or a relaxing dinner. The fabric’s white colour lends a timeless aesthetic that can be effortlessly paired with a number of tops and footwear options, making it an adaptable addition to any wardrobe. Whether you choose to pair them with a tucked-in blouse, a casualtee, or a flowing summer top, white denim shorts can be effortlessly styled to suit your personal taste and occasion. Black denim shorts, similarly, look great paired with a variety of tops, tees, blouses, and sweaters. While high-waisted varieties are both on-trend and flattering, accentuating your natural figure and providing a polished look. Pair your high-waisted denim shorts with a loose-fitting white blouse or a lightweight, printed top for an effortless daytime look. Otherwise, dress them up with a tailored blazer and strappy sandals for a more elevated and evening-ready ensemble. A pair of elegant ballet flats will elevate even the most casual denim shorts. Pair with an oversize button-down for the perfect balance. Tips for wearing denim shorts Denim shorts are one of the most hardworking staples in your summer closet. While not typically worn to the office, they can be worn on pretty much every other casual occasion in between, from beach days to brunches, to working from home to meeting with friends. They’re simple, practical, and always reliable. It’s about how you style denim that makes all the difference in your summer wardrobe. Sticking to neutral denim washes, like indigo, blue, black and white will provide a solid foundation for any outfit. Opting for a mid-thigh, or even knee-length, darker wash with stiff denim, going light on the distressing, and a more structured style will help make denim shorts feel more polished. Plus, it's all about the styling. Dress up your denim for a meeting, a fancy lunch, or an evening out by belting a longer-length pair at the waist and adding a sophisticated fitted jacket. Luxe ballet flats are the perfect finishing touch to your polished ensemble. Knee-length shorts are generally a safe bet for the office, especially if paired with loafers and a matching blazer. Add a white tee to keep things business casual or a blouse for a more formal vibe.
