How to Style Cotton Shorts: This Summer's Wardrobe Must-Have
Cotton shorts are the summer wardrobe must-have. They are perfect for hot weather because cotton is a breathable, cool fabric that will keep you comfortable no matter how warm it gets outside. And they look great on, too! Whether you want to style your shorts with sandals and a simple tank or dress them up with heels and a blouse, there's an outfit for every occasion this season. We'll show you how in today's blog post!
Why Cotton is a Summer Staple
Cotton is not only comfortable in the summer, but also stylish! It's a must for your wardrobe this season.
It's the perfect sustainable fabric when you want to wear something light and breezy on an outdoor adventure or in sticky weather.
Cotton is cool to the touch, but it's also lightweight. It won't weigh you down and make you sweat like other heavier fabrics might in summer heatwaves! Plus, it's easy to care for and offers a natural, textured look to any outfit.
Whether you're hanging by the pool, walking the dog, or going to work, these shorts are right for any occasion. They're stylish, yet modest, comfortable, yet polished. Keep reading and find five new outfit ideas you can use when styling these shorts this summer!
How to Style Long Cotton Shorts
Long cotton shorts are a fantastic wardrobe staple for summer.
They go with everything from tanks, tees and cut-offs to long-sleeved shirts and blouses. You can also layer them over skirts or dresses when you want some extra coverage in the heat! We've rounded up five breezy ideas below of ways you can style your new pair of cotton shorts this season. You can dress them up or down easily depending on what you need.
Outfit One: Classic Tee & Summer Shoes
To dress down an outfit, try throwing on a classic boxy tee and some summer-must-have sandals or slip-ons. This outfit is fast because it's effortless but still chic enough for a more polished look.
Outfit Two: Buttoned-Up with Style
For a dressed-up look, try pairing your Glenn Long shorts with a classic short sleeve button-up shirt. Go monochrome and match colors with our Black and Emerald Box Tops or choose a printed style that accentuates the warm summer colors. Finish off the outfit with some dressy flats or relaxed heels and you're ready to take on summer!
Outfit Three: Shorts and Chunky Sweaters
For a more casual look, try pairing your Glenn Long shorts with an oversized sweater. For warmer days and chilly evenings alike, our crew neck sweaters are perfect for any outfit!
Outfit Four: Shorts with Layered Tops
Our cotton shorts are perfectly unassuming and make way for you to be as creative as you'd like with your style. These shorts go exceptionally well with layered looks. Think tanks and scarfs, tees and hats, or tanks and cardigans or layered button-ups. The options are endless!
Outfit Five: Shorts & Tanks
These shorts make for a great summertime alternative to jean cutoffs or denim skirts. Pair them with your favorite tanks and you'll be set on even the warmest days. Classic tank tops look great tucked in or loosely laid over these stylish wonders.
Why You'll These Love Cotton Shorts
They're a staple this season because they look great on everyone - from petite ladies to tall girls, and those with unique body shapes. Cotton is such a versatile fabric because it's so breathable and lightweight and is still soft to the touch to help against the summer heat and sunshine. It also doesn't wrinkle as easily which means you'll have more time to dress up or opt-out of ironing entirely!
Crinkle cotton shorts are a summer must-have for anyone who is looking to create that perfect summer capsule closet. Their minimalist style and effortless silhouette make these long shorts almost too easy to love.
Our Glenn Long Short is inspired by the vintage track and field style with the long length and the curved hemlines. They are incredibly soft and feel like they're already perfectly formed to your body from the moment you put them on.
They are flattering, the perfect length, and high-waisted so they'll always stay in place. Tuck in, roll up, chill out with these summer must-haves. Fitting close without being clingy while still looking flattering on all body types, these high-waisted shorts offer more coverage than the average short while staying cool and comfortable even when it heats up outside. These versatile pieces will be just as comfortable over your favorite slip dress or paired with other casual outfits you might like better during those hot days ahead--so don't leave your comfort up to chance the rest of the summer.
