How is summer coming along? I hope you enjoyed reading my last post on styling maxi’s. Today I will be talking about how to style shorts for summer. Denim shorts are a must have wardrobe essential for summer and it’s really important selecting the right fit for your body type. Today I will be talking about dressing up this look a bit, so that you look fashionable and chic in those casual shorts.
Styling Tip 1: If you’re hourglass shaped like me or if you just want your legs to look slimmer, opt for loose fitted shorts or go a size up so that you leave some space between your thighs and the fabric giving the illusion of slender legs.
This is pretty much my to go summer outfit. I live in these comfy boyfriend shorts in summer. I hate shorts which stick to my skin and I always buy them atleast 1 – 2 sizes up.
Styling Tip 2: Pair shorts with loose and long tops and accessories for that boho chic look and to dress it up. You can wear shorts a number of ways – with shirts and sneakers, with a loose fitted off shoulder top and a heavy necklace or with a nice tank top and a layered necklace. If you’re having a bad hair day, you can even tie it up in a bun and look super cute.
The black tank top I am wearing is from a store called A’GACI . It’s very airy and has small holes at the back as the design making it perfect for those summer afternoons. I even wore this with pants. Check my blog-post here.
Styling Tip 3: Although, it’s fun playing with colors in summer, in order to make each accessroty stand out, match the colors of your shoes and bag for a co-ordinated yet fun look.
I am carrying this convertible vegan friendly bag from Daylin Skye Designs. A fresh, sophisticated collection of handbags and accessories. I loved this bag as soon as I received it and was able to use it with so many of my outfits. The best part is that it’s very versatile as you can convert it from a sling-bag into a clutch. The one I am carrying is the Lulah mini. They have a number of other really cute bags on their website as well 🙂
Styling Tip 4: Style a basic outfit (such as denim shorts and a black top or blue jeans with a white top) with reflector aviators for a chic yet sophisticated look.
I’ve kept my accessories very minimal with this look. The bangles I am wearing are from Express and the layered gold necklace is from Sammy’s Dress. I love the delicate yet chic look of it. I wore orange Rayban aviators to complete the look as my outfit had very basic colors.
Styling Tip 5: Hair extensions in summer are a great idea for that edgy look. Since I am too lazy to tie my hair up in a nice big bun, I left it down. But if you want to create voluminous hairstyles such as braids or buns, hair extensions are a great idea for summers.
I am also wearing my super fun Irresistible Me hair extensions. I love how these add more volume and length to my hair. Read my full blog post on these extensions here.
