If there’s one item I wear more than any other once summer rolls around, it’s denim shorts. And as a market editor whose DMs are full of shopping requests, I can say with certainty that it’s one of the most sought-after summer items for plenty of others as well.
Denim shorts may seem pretty boring in the grand scheme of fashion attire, but they serve as the perfect basic backdrop to all my trendy pieces, as they’re easy to dress up with a satin blouse and kitten heels or dress down with Birks and a button-down. Whether I wear them on the city streets, at the beach, or during a market appointment, they’re the ideal practical and cool piece when the temps hit above 70°.
Today, I’m sharing all the pretty and chic trends to wear with your denim shorts this summer. From chic ballet flats to beautiful blouses, take a look below to inspire your next denim-shorts summer outfit.
