5 Most Stylish Shorts to Add to Your Summer Wardrobe

Dresses are, of course, never a bad idea but shorts are the equal counterpart when you want to be casual and comfortable. For years, many of us have resorted to the tried-and-true denim cutoffs – but today, I’m making a case for a few other options you’ll want to add to your rotation. I’ve been embracing everything from biker shorts to criss-cross waist cuts to boxer shorts. I’m finding that they’re a failproof way to look pulled together while wearing as little as possible in the sweltering heat. To see which options are worth adding to your daily line up, keep scrolling ahead.

1. Crisscross Denim Shorts

Give your denim shorts collection a dose of freshness by opting for a trendy crisscross waist. The asymmetrical waist line gives it a modern update in the most subtle way. It’s such a brilliant way to take an effortless tee or bodysuit to the next level.

2. Biker Shorts

You girls know I’m a huge proponent of athleisure wear. Sweatpants and leggings are my jam but when it’s too hot to think, biker shorts are foolproof. If you follow me on Instagram, I think it’s obvious that my summer uniform has been a biker short set with a blazer.

3. Boxer Shorts

One of the newer short styles I’ve been loving is boxer shorts. Whether you’re into quilted designs or lofty cotton shorts, they just give off a nonchalant vibe that looks endlessly cool. It’s the summer item influencers, models and stylists have been embracing all season long. If you’re ready to dig into the trend, I have some great picks below at every price point.

4. Paperbag Waist Shorts

Although I’m obsessed with casual dressing, my style tends to skew dressy most of the time. For those days when I want to feel more elevated, paperbag waist shorts are my go-to. They’re incredibly easy to style up or down! I prefer wearing mine with bodysuits to highlight the belt detail and rumpled waist.

5. Faux Leather Shorts

Faux leather shorts will always have a place in my wardrobe. They’re one of those pieces you can wear year-round – but are especially crucial for transitioning to fall towards the end of summer. The edgy piece is a great way to offset a flirty summer top.
