With the weather heating up, it’s time to evaluate your shorts drawer. Longline shorts and baggier silhouettes are definitely trending with the fashion crowd, as are classic paperbag-waist shorts, denim shorts, and co-ord shorts sets. To elevate said shorts and make them feel more fashion-forward, shoes are the perfect addition. A simple T-shirt and denim shorts can be upgraded with a pair of slingback kitten heels or chunky flatforms.
For outfit inspiration, I’ve evaluated the top five shoe styles fashion people are pairing with their shorts. Shop some of the leading styles in each of these categories below and prepare for a shoe shelf update.
Slingback heels are a trending style right now and an unexpected choice to pair with shorts but very chic. A lower heel height feels refined and a luxe bag can finish off the look.
Super-strappy sandals are another style that is very hot this season. A minimal, sophisticated pair feels elegant with a long pair of shorts. Plus, these heels will go very far in your spring and summer closet.
Wedge heels are definitely in their moment, and whether in lucite versions, sculptural heels, or the quintessential ’90s silhouette, expect to see these all over this warm-weather season. Style them with adorable co-ord short sets, longline shorts, and baggy “jorts.” Another option I can get behind for comfort.
Sneakers are by far my choice footwear for any season or ensemble. So paper-bag-waist shorts, tube socks, and sneakers are the ideal bottom half for all warm-weather outfits. All of your favorite brands have reinvented their staple styles as well as releasing exciting new styles.
Chunky flatforms are a choice trend of my own due to comfort, so I’m thrilled to see them styled in versatile ways this summer. Pop on a thick-soled platform with any look and opt for color for a bright accent.
