summer shorts fashion ideas

Summer is here and when it's hot outside, shorts are the perfect clothing piece. Honestly, when it's over 25 Celcius, I can't bother wearing trousers or jeans. I prefer shorts or flowy dresses and skirts.

For those of us who enjoy wearing shorts in the summer, I've compiled a list of the 5 most trendy types of shorts for summer 2020. These are outfit ideas meant to give you some inspiration for what styles of shorts are popular this season.

Shorts vs Skirts

Both are great options but shorts are more practical if you are going to be moving around, bending down, and working out. They are the type of clothing item you can just throw easily. Shorts can be dressed up with a nice pair of heeled sandals or dressed down with a basic white tee.

Remember to have fun with fashion trends and always add elements of your personal style to any outfit.

What to look for in shorts:

  • length: pick shorts that cover your bum and make sure they are the length at which you feel comfortable.

  • color: pick the denim wash you like most or for non-denim shorts, choose colors that flatter your skin tone.

  • the right fit: depending on the material of the shorts, they can have a loose or tight fit. Make sure your shorts aren't looking too loose where the sides stick out like fins.

  • material: look for stretchy or comfy denim or light breathable materials such as linen.
