Denim shorts are becoming popular in recent time. With some thoughtful styling and pitch-perfect footwear, jean shorts can be the quiet star that anchors favorite weekend looks this season. Fashion magazine ELLE has showed the new ways to style classic cutoffs.
Upgrade a Basic Button Down
When pairing an oversize oxford shirt with raw-hem jean shorts, the half-tuck is the instinctive move. But letting those shirttails hang loose is actually the key to making this your new warm-weather uniform. A thin belt lends structure and slims the silhouette, while a crisp, structured purse further offsets the slouchy fit, cool-girl cuffed sleeves, and casual shorts. The crowning touch: elegant slip-ons in an understated pattern that go with absolutely everything.
Give Sporty Some Structure
Athleisure combo you’ve never thought to try: slouchy blazer + a soft, I’d-wear-this-every-day-if-I-could hoodie. See how the classic jacket, simple jewelry, and office-ready handbag transform loose denim and a cozy sweatshirt into a street-style masterpiece? Pull in a pop of color with a demure low heel.
Play With Proportions
Sculptural tops stormed the runways this season, and we’re obsessed with the proportions of this one: a high neckline and voluminous sleeves billowing from a sexy crop. To keep the proportions in check, pair a statement-making shirt with classic double-cuffed denim shorts (no messy fringe in sight) and a belt bag that doesn’t interfere with everything you have going on up top. As always, a few choice accessories tie things together: Oversize sunnies and pretty heels with rich details give the whole look chic, art-school vibes.
All denim shorts needn’t be short shorts. Check out this perfectly threadbare pair, which hits at the more conservative mid-thigh. Then notice how the demure length plays nice with this high-necked blouse for gone-on-safari Out of Africa vibes. Keep the accessories modern with a structured yet streamlined purse and scooped-out booties—a playful twist on the suede staples everyone wears.
