What To Wear With Boyfriend Shorts

This spring, we have seen an array of ways to wear boyfriend jeans but as the weather is getting hotter and summer is now here, we have to create a more breezy and fresh option. And that, ladies, is boyfriend shorts. While you might not want to throw away your cutoff shorts altogether, there’s is just simply no need to keep those daisy dukes in the surface of the pile in your wardrobe. I suggest burying them at the deepest part of your closet until it will become trendy again.

For now, you have those boyfriend shorts. Now, you don’t necessarily have to literally wear those of your beau’s. They will definitely fall a few inches below your knee and that’s not good at all. But you can cut a few inches above its hemline into a more flattering length. And the rips will just add up to its casualness.

Here are 7 casual ways to wear boyfriend shorts.

With A T-Shirt

A t-shirt is really the most casual way to pair with boyfriend shorts. Especially during those days when you are not in the mood for dressing up. If you are opting for a plain shirt, find one with a more tailored silhouette. Whereas one with graphics will also do.

With A Collared Shirt

A collared shirt gives out a formal look and this will greatly contrast with the casualness of the boyfriend shorts. Now, whether you’ll be wearing this outfit combo for a slightly formal or casual event depends on what shoes you will wear. For a more formal look, go for heels and sneakers or loafers for a casual look.

With A Jacket

A masculine jacket can add up to the edginess of a distressed boyfriend shorts so I suggest that you add more feminine touch through your accessories such as strappy heels and a cute bag. But on boyfriend shorts without any rips, a leather jacket would add to the sleekness.

With A Cardigan

Where jackets gives an ounce of edginess to the outfit, a cardigan can add a little relaxed look and girliness. And it’s adorable whether you pair it with a sneakers or heels or if your hair is sitting on top of your head in a messy bun. The cardigan definitely adds a little cuteness to your boyfriend shorts outfit.

With A Blazer

With blazer paired to your pair of boyfriend shorts, you have a more neat and polished outfit. And one that is sleeker than with the leather jacket. I highly recommend an oversized suit jacket or a men’s blazer.

With A Feminine Top

For a more feminine look than what cardigans has to offer, a feminine top will be great. You could go all bohemian with a loose blouse and dangling earrings or more street chic with a structured bag and strappy sandals.
