I’m Melting, so I Found the Best Fashion-y Shorts Outfits

With summer in full swing, there’s no doubt my daily outfits are reflecting the sweltering heat. I’ve been living in mostly lightweight dresses and, of course, shorts—an easy basic I can pair with tank tops, bikinis, and flowy blouses. If you’re melting in the heat like I am, today I wanted to hone in on some stylish shorts outfits to keep you cool and sartorially excited this season.

From staple denim shorts and tees to chic Bermuda shorts with oversize shirts and breezy matching sets, keep scrolling to see how fashion girls are wearing their shorts this season, and shop the looks for yourself. We guarantee these will be the perfect ensembles to see you through summer.

As you’ll see throughout this story, matching shorts sets are having a huge moment this summer. Take this breezy cotton set into the city and pair it with wedges and fun accessories.

Just one scroll on Instagram and you’ll notice that this summer is all about towel dressing! Try a pair of terry-cloth shorts with a matching bralette and shirt.

You simply can’t go wrong with mid-length denim shorts and a chic tank top for summer. Finish the look with thong sandals, a baguette bag, and gold chains.

Elevate your summer look and try a fitted vest/waistcoat instead of your tank top, and style it with a pair of high-waisted, relaxed shorts. So chic and very on-trend.

Shop the matching Ivory Linen Shorts ($185). 

Whether you’re going on vacation or not, add some tropical vibes to your sweatshirts with a colorful floral resort shirt. Tie it all together with bright and poppy accessories.

For your summer outdoor adventures, try an all-neutral shorts outfit with a simple tank, bike shorts, and an oversize button-down. Give your look a cool-girl touch and finish with a statement floral bucket hat. Cool and practical.

An all-white outfit is a no-brainer in summer. Opt for loose, linen shorts and a cropped top with elevated details to take your outfit from day to night.
