Summer might be unofficially over, but the temps are still warm here during the days so I’m not *quite* ready to put my favorite summer dresses, shorts, and houses away just yet! The mornings and evenings have definitely cooled down quite a bit but it gets warm in the afternoons, so I’m all about the layers and one of the easiest ways (IMO) to dress for this time of year is to style my favorite shorts with some sort of layer.
Enter: my favorite sweater blazer. I will probably only be able to get another week or two out of this effortless look, but depending on where you live, you might be able to squeeze a little more time out of it!
More Ways to Style Your Shorts for Fall
With a Denim Jacket
Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple and can essentially be worn year round (depending on where you live!). I love that they are so effortless and easy to pair with pants, dresses, skirts, and you guessed it – shorts!
With a Structured Blazer
A great blazer is such an easy way to elevate any outfit, and when paired with shorts, you instantly have a great outfit for drinks with the girls.
With an Anorak
Fall in New England always brings unpredictable weather, making an anorak jacket your new best friend. They’re light weight and packable but also give you the protection you need from the chilly wind and rainy weather. Even when it’s humid and you want to have bare legs.
With a Lightweight Sweater
I always say I wish I lived in a place that it was 70° out year round so I could have the choice of wearing jeans and a t-shirt or shorts and a lightweight sweater. And cmon, this combo is perfect for any weather between summer and fall that mother nature might throw our way.
With a Leather Jacket
Give your shorts an edgy “I don’t give a fuck” vibe by pairing them with your favorite leather jacket. By opting for a neutral color (white, oatmeal, blush) instead of the classic black, your outfit will still feel summer-y and day time appropriate.
