What’s the one piece of clothing that we just can’t do without in the summer? Yes, you’ve guessed it right - shorts! Not only do they help keep the scorching summer heat at bay, but they also make you look cool and trendy. They come in different patterns, designs and prints, and a girl can never have enough of them. Here’s Team POPxo with their go-to pair of summer shorts as they drop some major style inspiration!
1. Laidback And Downright Cool!
Gopika EM, Social Media Manager
To all the #girlbosses out there who like to play by their own rules and own the world- we know you like to dress the part too! Take note from Gopika on how to style your shorts to bring out that inner confidence and look drop-dead gorgeous at the same time. Pair simple black shorts with a washed-out denim shirt and wear statement booties and a cap for adding that extra edge to your basic shorts and shirt combo.
2. Print Fiesta
Avisha Chaudhary, Social Media Coordinator
Ain’t no better way to celebrate spring and summer than by donning gorgeous prints and colours! The pleasant weather is the perfect excuse for you to rock the print-on-print trend by pairing your favourite printed shorts with a well-coordinated top. Avisha wears her printed shorts with booties to add some edge. Love the way it’s balancing out her ensemble and toning down the prints.
So what if you weren’t born in the ’70s? You can still channel your inner flower child by accessorizing right and pairing your shorts with a bohemian cover-up and a pretty floral top. Take notes from Sharon who effortlessly nails this look and drops some major outfit inspiration for the summer. Complete this look by throwing on a flower head band and you’re ready to roll!
4. Oversized and Aztec
Apurva Lama, Fashion Writer
I’m wearing my go-to pair of summer shorts with an oversized denim jacket and basic white tee. Since the shorts are mini, I decided to throw on the oversized jacket and a loose top to balance the look.
Our office manager, Alisha, sure has the cutest collection of shorts. She wears her high-waisted patterned shorts with a cute black racerback to beat the summer heat. She finishes her look by slipping onto a pair of strappy black flats. Perfect for a day out in the sun!
6. The Dress-Shorts Combo
Apoorva Gupta, Editorial Coordinator
If you have a short dress, then wearing it on top of shorts is bound to take your outfit to the next level. Take a cue from Apoorva who wears her dress over a pair of denim shorts and looks every bit the trendsetter she is. Throw on a funky hat to channel that boho chic look.
The beach is probably the only place we don’t complain about the sun shining too bright. If you’re headed to the seaside to have some fun in the sun, then pair your most comfy shorts with a loose off-shoulder top and flipflops. Krithika shows us how to get that beach outfit right!
