Here are tips on what to pair with denim shorts:

Roll up your sleeves if wear a long topper and keep legs looking long and lean with high heel pumps or strappy sandals.

Boyfriend Jean Shorts
Do choose a more fitted top when wearing this relaxed short style, to avoid looking boxy. Boyfriend jean shorts also call for a sturdier shoe, so skip delicate sandals in favor of a bold gladiator sandal style. Or play up the masculine vibe of these shorts with a chunky short boot.

Instead of the obvious sneakers, wear these overall shorts with funky ankle boots for the most stylish look when you’re out and about.

For a fashionable look, go beyond the basic tank top and match these shorts with a graphic tee and cropped jacket. Or wear them with a feminine blouse in a floral pattern for summer parties. Whatever you wear on top, keep legs looking mile-long (and keep your feet relatively comfortable) by pairing these micro shorts with nude platform heels.

Wear printed denim shorts with a pretty patterned blouse for summertime. Cinch your waist in this outfit with a metallic or chain belt, and finish your outfit with nude high heel shoes.

Wear black jean shorts with a simple cotton tee in white or a pastel shade, and finish this easy summer look with edgy black gladiator sandals or chunky boots.
