Ways to Wear

4 Ways Our Favourite Influencers Are Wearing Their Summer Shorts

by Adam Fletcher

Once upon a time, we weren’t into shortcuts 😅. You know how the saying goes - there’s no fast and easy road to the best things in life. Well, that’s completely changed. At the moment, we’re all about finding looks that we can quickly copy from our favourite influencers for the last 40+ days of summer (not that we’re counting).

So, to make life a whole lot simpler for everyone RN, we’ve rounded up four looks that feature the piece of the moment (shorts), complete with clever styling tips so you can get the most out of them. After all, wouldn’t you rather spend your precious time planning picnics than picking which shorts go with what slogan tee or pair of sliders? Just saying.

​​​​​​​Allow us to do all the legwork for you...

1. Working From Home with @lauraslittlelocket

Okay, working from home in a sports bra & joggers is totally great and everything, but a pair of high-waisted shorts and a spot-print shirt is guaranteed to elevate your wfh wardrobe – which is what we all need right now. Plus, the best thing about this look (apart from the fact that it requires 0 effort, just tuck the shirt in and add a pair of diamanté heart hoop earrings), is that it comes in summer’s favourite colourways: stone and cream. It’s time to put it in neutral.

2. Lounging with @livblankson

Sit back, smile & sip your favourite brew. We’ve found a pair of shorts that are both stylish✔ and comfy ✔, so you can literally spend the whole day chilling in them: the tie-waist running short. If you thought that wearing these shorts meant actually doing exercise, then it might be time to jog along (lol) and seriously think again, because they feel just as at home when you’re wearing them…only at home. Want to pop out? You got it – add an oversized cropped jumper with a ‘Brooklyn’ slogan, a pair of sliders and a teddy scrunchie.

3. Picnics with @laurencrowe88

We can’t talk about picnics without mentioning the floral short, right? Yup, ditsy-print shorts, with a draped fit, are a major deal at the moment, and they look even better when they’re buddying 🌼 up with a bodysuit and a stone blazer for park picnics. Plus, since picnics are kind of like our BNOs right now, you can 100% be extra with your choice of accessories. Crafty straw bags are still fashion law, and strappy sandals will get you one step closer to channelling the 90s trend.

4. Lunch with the Family with @rebeccafayehudson

No two families are the same. However, something that most families seem to value is their best-loved relative making some kind of effort for those all-important lunches. So, if you wanna be at the centre of the table convo, we suggest that you try this ensemble that we’ve lined up. A pair of denim shorts might feel like they’re better suited for casual BBQ moments, especially when they come with turn-up hems and a boyfriend fit, however, when paired with a double-breasted blazer in a similar tone, they give us smart-stylish vibes. Just add trainers and a white tee.
