How to wear printed shorts

Category: women clothing

It’s easy to wear a pair of denim or solid colored shorts. Throw on a cute tee or crop top, slip on some sandals, and you’re good to go. But things get a little trickier when you’re wearing printed shorts instead. Prints in general can be hard to wear, especially a more elaborate or colorful print – but they’re so pretty!

But because shorts are so versatile (they can be dressed up! Dressed down!), this makes styling a printed pair a little bit easier. You might feel like you can only wear them one or two different ways, but you’re wrong – you actually have so many great options, as seen in the outfit ideas below. Here are style tips on how to wear printed shorts for the rest of the summer.

 

  1. Throw a loose sweater on, and cinch the waist with a skinny belt. This look is so easy and cute for a cool summer evening.

  2. If you’re wearing black and white printed shorts, spice them up with a pop of color, like a bright tank.
