Top 5 Summer Shorts

By Maddy Weedle, Jul 19


Summer's here and it's time to take advantage of the warm months we have left to bare some skin and show off our tans before jack frost blows in. To help you get started, we've rounded up a list of the top 5 summer short trends, from denims to florals and everything in between.

 

1. Short Sets:  Invest in a short and blouse set this summer for a quick, trendy and put together look. This feminine short set from Aritzia has a soft A-line shape and adorable pineapple print that's perfect for traveling because it won't wrinkle in your suit case. Go casual with a pair of comfy sandals for daytime, or dress it up for an evening out with stacked heels. 

Aritzia Talula Marzee Shorts ($27.50) paired with Talula Cranston Blouse ($30)

 

2. Printed Floral Shorts: It's no secret that prints are all the rage this season. Incorporate the trend into your weekend look with these printed joggers from the Gap. They're perfect for a day at the lake or walking around Calgary. Try pairing them with an all white sneaker for a clean and polished look.

Gap Printed Jogger Shorts $11.99

 

3. Denim Shorts: These are an essential in every girl's wardrobe. We're seeing them this year in high waisted, short-shorts, and boyfriend dark denim. Casual and comfy, jean shorts take you from picnics in the park to shopping downtown. We love these white denim shorts with a distressed hem from H&M that are easy to wear all summer long.

H&M Short Denim Shorts $14.99

 

4. Lace Shorts: Lace shorts can be worn all throughout summer. Dress them up for a bridal shower or dinner out, or tuck in your favourite tee for a casual afternoon on Stephen Avenue.

BCBGeneration Double Layer Lace Short $77

5. Longer Flowy Shorts: These shorts are trending this summer due to their versatility; they're appropriate for work and evenings out, making them a must-have summer staple. We love the Mazzy Short from Club Monaco with their floaty silhouette and touch of silk - perfect for your next garden party.

Club Monaco Mazzy Short $289
