Denim Boyfriend Shorts Outfit for Summer

Hi, friends. Happy Tuesday! It’s hard to believe, but 22 Days of Summer Fashion is already half over. Today I’m styling a casual denim boyfriend shorts outfit.

Denim Boyfriend Shorts Outfit for Summer

These Kut from the Kloth boyfriend shorts have a subtly relaxed fit, and the slight destruction and rolled cuff give them an effortlessly casual vibe.

They’re made of a thick, soft denim with just enough stretch to be comfortable, and they don’t bag out.

I normally like my shorts more in the 4 – 5″ range, but this 7″ length is nice for a change. They hit right around mid-thigh, which is a flattering length on most women.

Even with the relaxed styling, the leg opening isn’t super wide, and the sewn cuffs keep them looking nice and neat even after washing.

These shorts run TTS (I’m wearing the 6) and they’re available in a wide range of sizes (from 00 – 18.) You can find them at and Evereve, and there are a few sizes at Zappo’s.

This linen henley is from Old Navy, and it’s made of a soft-washed, lightweight linen/poly blend. It comes in a bunch of colors and a few prints. I really like the gathered shoulders and dolman sleeves.

It has a slightly curved hem and a relaxed fit, and I’d say it runs true to size; I’m wearing the small.

FYI, the link to my shirt defaults to the petite sizes, for some reason, so be sure to click on the regular sizes if that’s what you’re looking for.

I’ve shared these Marc Fisher sandals several times before. I love the studded embellishments and square open toe.

These are the medium natural leather, but they also come in other colors.

They’re extremely comfortable with soft leather straps; and because of the way the straps are designed, they are secure and easy to walk in.

These sandals are 40% off at Nordstrom, and they run TTS. I have the 8.

I love how my Victoria Emerson wrap bracelet complements the olive in the top and the beige in the sandals.

Unfortunately, this one is long gone, but she has plenty of other gorgeous bracelets to choose from, and she’s running a 40% off sitewide sale right now!

I also wore silver drop earrings and my rag & bone sunnies.

This is the type of outfit I’m pretty much living in right now. I’m usually either working from home or running errands, and this look is casual and comfortable but pulled together.
