Cute Shorts Outfits for Summer 2019

Here’s the short story — we have FIVE new lengths of jean shorts in sizes 0-24. And yes, you can wear them! From destruction to frayed hems, rolled hems to high rise, we have on-tend styles, fits and details that are flattering on every body. Jean shorts are so easy to wear and pair; they’re a natural addition to your summer short rotation. After all, what’s more versatile and comfy than a cool pair of jean shorts on a hot summer’s day? From long weekend getaways to lazy Sundays and everything in between, jean short outfits will be your go-to all season long.

Tank Tops + Jean Shorts

Sunrise to sunset, summer days are packed with fun activities — you need versatile shorts outfits that can keep up. Start with a tank in bright, colorful stripes then add jean shorts with a frayed hem plus strappy sandals. For a dramatic entrance, choose a tunic-length cami that floats behind you as you walk and statement-making, distressed jean shorts. For laidback adventures, choose an easy, 24/7 tank with Bermuda-length denim shorts and comfy sneakers — perfect for bicycling or hiking to see an amazing view.

Tees + Jean Shorts

The best thing about t-shirts is that they’re so easy to dress up or down (hello front tuck!). Our basic 24/7 tees are perfect for lounging and layering — you’ll reach for these staples AM to PM, especially our roomy, striped roadtrip tee. For dressier days, try a front-tie tee with pretty crocheted sleeves or buttons paired with white jean shorts or dark, slimming Bermudas. Casual graphic tees are a great way to show your personality and paired with distressed denim and a cute pair of sneakers, they’ll be your summer BFFs.

Elevated Tops + Jean Shorts

Some days you just have to go with the flow — which is why you need an effortless kimono to wear over all of your tees and tanks. It’s the lighter-than-air layer that adds dimension to your outfit and protects you from afternoon breezes and aggressive AC. Here’s another way to create an elevated jean shorts outfit: add an off-the-shoulder top in a neutral solid or tropical print. Nothing says, “headed to the beach” like vibrant yellow palm fronds, distressed jean shorts, thong sandals and a straw bag or hat.
