Yaaaay I’m back with another “One Item Five Ways” post (although this has slowly progressed into a “how to style soandso” kind of posts)… I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time but haven’t had the chance with us doing up the living room and the whole lockdown scenario! But today I wanted to share how to style a pair of denim shorts – regardless of your style! Let’s jump straight into it.
Pair it with a basic tee
The easiest way to style denim shorts is to wear it with a basic tee, which is prevalent in old school gyaru styles and gyaru kei, and it’s no wonder – it’s so simple but effective! This is the easiest outfit to put together when you’re new to gyaru as it doesn’t require any brand items, and you can always make the outfit more interesting with cute shoes or accessories.
Mix it up with grunge elements
Adding grunge elements like slogan tees, slouchy jumpers, metal accessories and plaid/check material can really add some spice to your outfit and completely transform how you wear denim shorts.
Accessorise it with an extra AF belt
I loooooove denim shorts and big D.I.A belts (although I think mine is from DreamV but we’ll pretend it’s D.I.A for now haha). This is a great look for those who love sexy but cool styles such as Tsuyome!
Add a pop of colour
Whether that’s through subtle ways like in your accessories or with a bright top, you can add a pop of colour to your outfit! This is perfect for the summer when we’re thinking of hot days in the sun. Hot gal summer!
Pair it with a slouchy jumper
Shorts look sooooo cute with a slouchy jumper, and it’s great for both summer and winter. You can opt to tuck the jumper into your shorts or let it hang over (if that makes sense!)
Get wild with prints!
Tropical prints, floral prints… Anything with a cool pattern works so well with denim shorts! This is perfect for both summer and winter – it all depends on how you accessorise it.
Dress it up with a blouse
You can easily dress up a pair of denim shorts by pairing it with a blouse or an off-shoulder top! This is perfect for those casual days out shopping or having brunch with friends.
And there we have it! Which one was your favourite? How would you style denim shorts?
