Shorts are an essential part of my summer wardrobe – especially living in Houston – temperatures as high at 90+ these are really a must. Because I spend a lot of time in these, I like having different options for styling them. Today I’m sharing six ways I like to wear them in the summer, to give you some inspiration when it comes to wearing shorts. 🙂
Shorts + Blouses
A blouse doesn’t always belong to a dressed up look. Sure they look great with trousers and skirts but jeans and jeans shorts are fair game too. In this look, I went for a casual vibe (my usual) wearing them with a blouse with my favorite slide on sandals, neutral handbag and minimal accessories.
Shorts + Sweaters
Of all the ways to wear shorts, I think wearing them with sweaters is one of my favorite. Especially if paired with a lightweight sweater, one that is breathable enough to wear in summer. This look I think is also perfect for beachside and lakeside days. 🙂
Shorts + Tanks
Tanks are so breeze that this pairing is a no-brainer. I especially love ones that have pretty details like ruffles. As for the shorts are so comfortable, I like the baggy fit and fun details like stitching on the sides and the cuff hem. I paired them with wedges – which are a go-to shoe this summer – and a fun clear bag which can also be worn without the insert. 😉
Shorts + Button Down Shirt
Button down shirts are a wardrobe essential on their own. Because I already owned this one, I thought it would be perfect to pair with shorts and use as a cover up while at the pool. If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll see a few pins on how to style button down shirts in a similar way to this look.
Shorts + T-shirts
Lastly, paired with t-shirts are a combination you can not go wrong with. This is one of the ways I wear them the most, especially to be around the house. Now tell me, what’s your favorite way to style and wear shorts in the summer?

You have so many cute shorts! Loving all of these options and how you styled them.
I didn’t like wearing shorts for a few years because they were all so “short” – but now with so many lengths I just love the options!
Thanks for the tips!!! I love shorts but they can get boring to wear. I love the way you styled them!!
I love all of these summer looks! I need to get a new a pair of shorts haha!
Cutoff shorts and maxi dresses are my absolute go-tos during the summer months!! I just love the simplicity of shorts and a cute top! It gives you so many ways to accessorize!
I wish I liked shorts more. I strongly dislike the way my legs look in shorts (and I’ve tried about every fit imaginable), so I typically stick with dresses or jeans in the summer. But your shorts and the outfits are all so cute!
Nailil, you are so adorable! These are all great looks! I have not been wearing shorts often this summer mostly because none of mine fit properly right now and I don’t want to buy anything new. So I have been sticking with dresses!
You are rocking all of your shorts! You have amazing legs so shorts are all the better to show them off!
All of these outfits are so cute! I wear shorts a lot too during the summer so mixing it up is always nice.
I love all of the ways you’ve styled your shorts! So many cute options here.
Cute looks! I sometimes get tired of shorts even when it is hot so I have been alternating with skirts.
Love all these cute summer looks! Your floral top is really pretty!
