Build Your Basics: Shorts

My “Must-Have” Styles

1. Relaxed Denim Short

I love a more casual style when it comes to denim shorts. These are a relaxed fit, which makes them comfortable to wear and easy to move in. I mostly pair them with a casual tank or tee, but you can dress them up a little bit with a pretty camisole or top and some heeled sandals, too!

MY FAVORITE:

Abercrombie High Rise Dad Short

2. Fitted Denim Short

A fitted denim short is great for pairing with oversized and shape-less tops. I always try to balance my top and bottom, so for the more flowy, loose tops that I have work well with a closer fittings short like this!

MY FAVORITE:

Agolde Parker Long Short with Cuff

3. Lounge/Sweat Short

The thing I reach for most often when I’m at home during the summer! A great lounge short is essential to me. This pair, in particular, is great because they’re high-waisted and have great length to them. I like that I can easily wear them with my cropped tanks and tees without feeling like they’re too short.

MY FAVORITE:

Aerie On My Way High Waisted Short

4. Easy Pull-On Short

Another style that I like to have in my closet because they’re comfortable and easy to wear! This style of shorts seems to be a little harder to find these days, but I like them with a simple tank and tee.

MY FAVORITE:

Madewell Lightspun Easy Pull-On Short (similar shown above)

5. Athleisure Short

I wear a lot of activewear throughout the summer, so having an athleisure short that works with those tops is great. If they have a variety of pockets, that’s a major bonus!

MY FAVORITE:

Old Navy High-Waisted Stretch Tech Shorts
