The one outfit a woman’s summer wardrobe cannot do without is a pair of shorts. From wearing it for a beach day or just styling it when road tripping with the girl gang, there are countless occasions when you can sport this piece. And just when you thought we’re talking about an old-fashioned pair, let us remind you that this piece has been reincarnated time and again with a twist or more. And once the distressed denim started making a style statement, it was only fair that a pair of ripped shorts would catch up in the fashionosphere among street style favourites. We agree a pair of ripped shorts has been a staple for a while now and we absolutely love it. We think it’s one of the easiest pieces to work around with when putting together a cool (literally) and cute outfit. Here are three looks on how you can wear the ripped shorts with ease, and like your favourite fashionista.
With a statement top
Couple your ripped shorts with a super-attractive statement top that will instantly take you from drab to fab. Off-the-shoulder, one shoulder, asymmetrical tops, the options are endless. This style will definitely give you a stylish look, and we bet you’ll be the talk of the town. Don’t forget to accessorise and finish off this ensemble with a pair of high heels.
With a basic shirt
Sporting a shirt is one of the basic ways to dress up your ripped shorts. Our personal favourite style is to tuck in a plaid shirt into your shorts for a 90s grungy vibe. Denim-on-denim is a trend you definitely must try with ripped shorts. A classic button-down shirt also pairs well with this piece. A shirt and ripped shorts combo is the way to go.
With a layered piece
Work a classic layer with your ripped shorts and experiment with different jackets. A bomber jacket paired with your ripped shorts will give you an uber-cool outfit. Go Coachella-esque by throwing on a printed light-weight kimono and channel a boho-goddess with some silver jewellery. Blazers also make for a good outfit option when styled with ripped shorts.
