  • How to Style Denim Shorts This Year: 6 Outfit Ideas

Jean shorts are a summer staple because of their endless versatility. We’ve gathered up a few of our favorite cutoff looks so you no longer have to wonder how to style denim shorts. Here, chic styles that made the cut!

1. Jean Shorts and a Chic Tank

We love the play on textures with these two looks—the soft denim against a chunky knit sweater tank and a breezy, linen cami. And the bold patterns play well off the light denim washes.

2. Jean Shorts and a Button-Down

Is there a more iconic summer duo? We love this timeless ensemble (that’s especially trending right now thanks to #CoastalGrandma), as it’s the perfect look for an endless array of summer activities. From morning coffee runs, to afternoons on the sidelines (the long sleeves provide extra sun coverage), and worn over your swimsuit at the pool, investing in these two pieces will pay dividends for seasons to come.

3. Jean Shorts and a Statement Top

Perfect for nights out, the proportions of this combo (shorter shorts + longer sleeves) create an easy, elevated vibe. Add your favorite slide sandal, hat and go—a patio and cocktail are calling!
