One of my dear friends recently texted me asking if I could send her a few spring and summer outfit ideas that didn’t involve shorts. While she’ll wear shorts from time to time (especially if it’s super hot), she’s just not as into them on the regular. Naturally, I wanted to help her with a few looks to consider. I also thought you might be interested as well, so I’m sharing the ensembles below.
The outfits in question are all easy and effortless. Some of the looks feature chic skirt options as alternatives to shorts. There is also an ensemble with trousers. The trick there is focusing on silhouettes that are looser in nature and balancing the look with a vest top (rather than a ton of layers).
With all that in mind, keep scrolling for the outfit ideas I sent over to my friend to consider for the season. There’s also shopping inspo sprinkled throughout.
A skirt is a great alternative to shorts if that's your style. An oversized white shirt is breezy and feels incredibly modern. While you could incorporate a sweater for a layered look, this ensemble works without it as well if it's warm outside.
