How to Wear a Blazer with Shorts

How to Wear a Blazer with Shorts

Happy Wednesday! I’ve been following fashion blogs for a long time, well before I started my own, and one of the trends that I have seen a lot lately is pairing a blazer with shorts. I love this trend so much and blazers in general that I decided to try it out for myself. It is such a great look to try if you want to look put together without trying too hard this Summer. Keep reading for my tips on how to wear a blazer with shorts.


Keep it simple

Pair a classic tee or cami under your blazer to down play the look. You can even use a band or logo tee to add in some color. But you can never go wrong with a white, black, or striped top.

Elevate it with footwear

For this kind of look you may want to skip flip flops and go with some nice sandals or flats. You could even pair it with some wedges or heels if you want to dress up the look even more. 

Belt it

To pull the look together even more go for tuck in your top and show off a cute belt. This works really well with high waisted shorts to cinch in your waist. If you are going with shorts that sit more on your hips you may want to keep you top untucked or only half tucked.

Finish it off with accessories

Some jewelry and a nice bag will help finish off the look. I chose to go with a sophisticated watch that matched my blazer and a standout, sequin crossbody. Another great option would be a wide brim hat.

    this look is ADORABLE on you!!! i wouldn’t have thought of putting a blazer with shorts and you executed it perfectly

  • Great tips! I would also add that make sure to keep the proportions in check – don’t want a super flow blazer with super flowy shorts and vice versa.
