3 Ways to Style Shorts

July 21, 2019

Summer has arrived and with it our must haves for the season: shorts. From California grunge to preppy, our resident styling team has some fresh ideas on how to style this seasonal staple. Here are three ways to wear shorts and mix up this warm-weather uniform.

1. 90s Skater

We love a good utility short, especially when oversized (shown here: our Carrier Cargo Shorts) and camo print. This layered, sized-up look feels easy and cool in shades of gray. Inspired by ‘90s skate, we accessorized the look with our Cotton Ribbed Beanie, pulled-up athletic socks and colorful sneakers.

2. Monochrome Classic

There’s nothing more tried and true than jean shorts. For a clean and classic denim-on-denim look, layer the Sunset Pocket Tee Shirt under our Standard Shirt. Finish with white athletic socks and sneakers for a laid-back, carefree summer feeling.

3. Man in Distress

Vintage Levi’s® are a no brainer. Cut them at the knee or a little above to create the perfect worn-in shorts and extend the life of a pair of beat-up jeans. If you love the look but don’t have the extra denim lying around, our 511 Slim Cutoff Shorts have the same look and feel as a naturally distressed pair. Wear it with a sharp red logo hoodie to give your look a more modern feel.

1. Old-School Prep

School’s out. This vintage-inspired outfit is a summer must. Worn oversized, this t-shirt pays homage to our ‘90s graphic logo. Keep it casual with a half-tuck and play up the era with our high-waisted Ribcage Shorts worn with private-school inspired oxfords and socks.

2. City Cowgirl

This look speaks to the edgier version of our Western heritage. Levi’s® classic 501® Shorts in black feel elevated and modern when worn with a fitted top. The unassuming fringe detailing on the shirt’s upper back is subtle and ties the entire outfit together. Styled with black socks and white patent leather pumps, the feel is uniquely evening-ready.

3. Sophisti-sport

Last but never least, we’re going for easy and sporty. Our high-rise 501® Shorts in a dark wash combined with a poppy-red logo bodysuit keep this old-school-inspired look feeling new. Take this bold bodysuitted outfit from day to night with a quick shoe change and jewelry stack.
