I feel like this outfit is giving very much 90’s and I’m here for it. I’m all about transitioning your favorite summer staple into a chic and cozy fall wardrobe essential. In this case, it was my denim shorts. I decided to go for shorts shorts because that’s my business but longer shorts would have looked bomb as well. Below I’ll provide a few ways you can style your denim shorts in the Fall.
Select the Right Denim Shorts
Before we dive into styling tips, it’s crucial to choose the right denim shorts for the Fall season. Opt for a pair in a darker wash, such as deep indigo or black, at the end of the day just stay away from a lighter shade. I love a short you already know haha but you can opt for styles with a longer inseam, like Bermuda shorts, to provide extra coverage and warmth.
Embrace Tights and Leggings
One of the simplest ways to make your denim shorts fall-appropriate is by adding tights or leggings. I personally love that look, it gives very much Blair from Gossip Girl or Serena Van der Woodsen. This not only provides extra warmth but also creates an interesting contrast between the light and airy shorts and the cozy layers on your legs. Pair your shorts with opaque tights in neutral or seasonal hues, or even try patterned options to add some oomph to your outfit.
Cozy Sweaters and Cardigans
The perfect complement to your denim shorts in the fall is a cozy sweater or cardigan. Which is my favorite look. Tuck your top into your shorts to maintain a balanced silhouette, or leave it untucked for a relaxed vibe. Choose warm colors like rust, mustard, forest green, or Black to give your outfit that quintessential fall feel.
Layer Denim Shorts with a Jacket
A cute jacket can instantly elevate your denim shorts outfit. A denim jacket or a leather moto jacket is a great choice for a stylish and edgy look. For a more polished appearance, try wearing a tailored blazer in a nice Fall color. The added layer not only provides warmth but also adds sophistication and a bit of Chic-ness to your look.
The choice of footwear can really make or break your fall denim shorts outfit. Opt for ankle boots, whether flat or heeled, as they are versatile and keep your feet cozy. You can also wear chunky platform shoes over-the-knee boots or knee-high boots. Don’t forget to pair your shoes with cozy socks for added warmth.
Mix and Match
Experiment with different combinations and accessories to create various fall denim shorts outfits. Mix textures, patterns, and colors to keep your style fresh and exciting. Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through your outfits just be you!
