How to Style Summer Shorts Up and Down

I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing I love more than a versatile piece of clothing. And in the summer, for me that’s usually shorts! I live in shorts throughout the summer, especially loose-fitting, comfortable ones. So, because you’ll probably be seeing a lot of that in the next couple of months, I thought I would share how I style the same pair of shorts both up and down.

To dress these shorts up, I added a delicate eyelet body suit and some wedges. For me, shoes play a major factor in dressing an outfit up or down. Throw on a pair of heels or wedges and you’re ready to hit the town! I would definitely wear this outfit to a girls night out/date night or happy hour. To keep the look fun and summery, I also added this cute lemon bag I bought last year!

Like I said before, shoes are everything when it comes to deciding the dress-factor of an outfit. To make this a more casual outfit, I switched my bodysuit for a comfy tee and my wedges for my dad sneakers. I also changed out the delicate bag for a more everyday, carry-all type of bag. I love the sporty vibes from the top and shoes combined with a girlier pair of gingham shorts. This is the type of outfit I’d wear every day—it’s perfect for class, weekends, and running errands!

The best part of both of these outfits? You could wear either one for the Fourth of July! Having a classy party, go with outfit #1. For a friendly BBQ and fireworks party, try outfit #2. But whether or not you want to wear these outfits for the 4th, definitely snap them up because they’re so affordable.

That’s all for this week! Which look would you wear—outfit #1 or #2? Let me know in the comments below!
