It’s shorts shorts season, which can be both exhilarating and terrifying. Yes, that means that warm summer days are upon us and we can run freely in as few layers as possible, but that also means we’re going out bare legs and we’re tights people after all...
Still, there’s no denying that a pair of athletic shorts are a must for the season. They’re ideal to have on hand for just about any and all summer activities like tennis and outdoor workouts. What’s more, they’re a must to wear underneath skirts and dresses to walk confidently throughout the city (bye bye, wardrobe malfunctions).
Now, Rachel squad member Justine is putting a fashion spin on her athletic shorts and showing us how to rock them with a style twist.
First, make sure you shop for the perfect pair, which should be lightweight and breathable, the perfect length and as slim-fitting as you like, and you’ll be on your way to #outfitgoals. In case you’re wondering, Justine loves our athletic shorts in khaki!
Here’s how to wear athletic shorts this summer!
Play with proportions
Justine is a styling pro and used her skills in proportion play to create a look that has a high fashion impact. Wear an oversized jacket with your slim-fitting athletic shorts to mimic this look. Underneath, opt for a boyfriend-tee and finish your outfit with sneakers for a high-fashion streetstyle look.
Opt for a classic piece
Sportswear meets classic pieces to create a look that’s daytime appropriate. Justine combined her khaki athletic shorts with a crisp white blouse, and the result is a fashion-forward look that still feels timeless. Stick to sneakers to complete your outfit and live in comfort!
