How to Wear Linen Dressy Shorts

Linen shorts have recently become one of my favorite pieces lately, you can style with a lightweight spring jacket for spring, pair them with a casual tee and sneaker or pull them on over your bathing suit for a chic and casual look. Today, I’m sharing how to wear linen shorts that I hope help you for some future inspiration.

How to Wear Linen Dressy Shorts

While I love my denim shorts, I wanted a few options that I can dress up a bit more. A linen short is a perfect option to style casually or to switch out your dresses for date night.

A matching set is a great way to simplify getting dressed. This set is from Express and I’m loving the earth tones. I styled it two ways. One with sneakers for a more casual look and then changed out the shoe and bag to add a dressier classic look.

One of my favorite looks this spring is linen shorts. These floral shorts make for such a cute outfit. In the spring, I styled it with a leather jacket, but when temps get a bit warmer styling with a tee or tank is a great option. These shorts have a bit of a flare which I find makes my legs look slimmer. They are Zimmermann and a bit of a splurge, but currently on sale at Saks.

You can use the separate pieces of the matching set to change up the look completely. Here, I paired a lace long-sleeved blouse with the shorts and kept it casual with my Golden Goose sneakers. If you are looking for something a little dressier, go with a flat sandal or heel.
