Outfit of the Day: Styling Shorts

Share This Post

If you’re like me, you are not a shorts person. Not that I have a problem with my legs showing, after all, I wear a number of mini-skirts, but I just don’t like the way they look on their own. So, I decided to create an outfit using shorts and a t-shirt in a different way. I hope you like it!

So, first off, the shorts are a comfy stretch denim Bermuda short from Lane Bryant. Their denim tends to fit me well, but you choose whatever store makes your preferred jeans to find your shorts. I also picked a longer cut because my thighs pretty much require it. Super short shorts ride up too much to make room for my legs, so I went a little longer.

I went with a more goth look here, but you can pick any tee that suits you to go with the shorts. This tee is from Hot Topic.

I put on tights from Snag under the shorts with tall boots. You don’t have to go with tights, but again, with my “ride up” situation, putting tights on helps the shorts stay put for me.

You can go with a combat boot, tall boots like I did, or a super clunky sneaker to complete the look. My boots are from Forever 21.
