6 Ways to Dress up Distressed Shorts

Summer is quickly approaching and with that I’m sure you’re going to be in your favorite pair of distressed shorts a lot! Admittedly I will 🙂 So I figured I would toss out a couple of ideas on changing up the look so we elevate our style and don’t look like we’re not innovative and fresh every time!

Light and Flowy Layers

Let’s start out with an easy casual look, the light layers. There are a couple of ways you could go about this, a kimono or a shirt. I love some brightly colored plaid which is what you see I went with. I am also sporting the season’s favorite shoes, lace ups! Pick your favorite fitted tank, throw on the layer, grab an accessory and viola you have the cute girl next door look!

Prep it up with a Blazer

I have long loved the blazer and denim distressed shorts pairing. It’s so edgy and yet so sophisticated! With it being spring, I went in for a colored blazer and a pair of sandals. I am carrying a structured bag to go with the structured look!

Simple and Cute

Denim and white tops, the classic look that can never really go out of style! Carrying a cute little crossbody with this look is the way to go!  You could even throw on a floral scarf if you really like color like I do. This chic look is absolutely weekend perfect! What more can I say 🙂

The Oversized Anorak

Really any oversized coat to top off your basic tee and shorts combo! I have picked an Anorak coat and paired it with some cute floral flats and a Rattan clutch. I love this tomboy-esque look 🙂

Let the Necklace do the Talking

Do you have a lovely oversized statement necklace? One that you would love to show off, well then that’s all you need! Grab your shorts, pull on a simple top, find a nice pair of sandals and let your statement necklace complete the look.

Denim on Denim

Denim on Denim can sometimes come off very matchy matchy. To avoid that, break it down with some color and that should have you looking fab instead of drab! I have incorporated black and a pop of pink. Using the lovely scarf adds a touch of femininity instead of a regular belt!
