9 Non-Dated Ways to Wear Shorts This Summer


No matter where you live in the world at one point or another, you’re probably going to want to wear shorts during the summer. But as far as summer staples go, shorts aren’t exactly the most fail-safe item to style. There are many different types of shorts, and figuring out what to wear with them can take a bit of trial and error. 

Shorts trends don’t change all that often (just consider how long bike shorts and cutoff denim shorts have been a thing), so coming up with fresh ways to wear them is of the utmost importance as the weather warms up. Since spring is in full swing and shorts are coming back into our outfit rotation (I don’t know about you, but it’s going to be 90° this week where I live), now is the perfect time to think about how to put together shorts outfits that aren’t just the same old thing. To avoid looks that seem a bit dated, I found nine new ideas for you, as worn by some of Instagram’s most stylish. Keep scrolling to find out how to try them for yourself and to shop similar shorts to wear on repeat.
