Dressy Shorts Outfits For Summer

This post is in partnership with Sézane.

Spring is here, summer is coming. The season for outdoor events, weekend getaways, and plenty of other occasions that call for comfortable and chic outfits. Why not mix it up with dressy shorts? Nothing wrong with skirts or dresses but shorts are a fun alternative for warm weather.

Dressy shorts are a versatile wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down for many occasions. Whatever is on your calendar this spring and summer, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, date nights or a girl’s weekend, don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles. It’s all about what makes you feel good. Here are some dressy shorts outfits to serve as inspiration for your spring and summer wardrobe.

I really like the structured shape and high waist of these cotton/linen blend shorts. The straight leg fit makes them comfortable and chic. Paired with a blazer and a feminine blouse they’re so chic. Most of the time I opt for a flat sandal. I rarely wear heels anymore, but you can totally dress up shorts with a flat strappy leather sandal. If you love a heel, these would be so cute with an espadrille.

The details on this linen/cotton blouse are so pretty, and it’s a light breezy style for summer. You probably know by now how much I love the Michele Jacket from Sézane. The navy is one of my favorite wardrobe staples, and the stripe linen style is perfect for summer. Accessorize with a simple leather bag and jewelry.

This sea green cardigan is the prettiest color. I wore it with the buttons facing back for something a little different, but it also looks great with the buttons in the front. Tucked into high waist shorts it looks polished but is also so comfy. I wore it with my straw tote and leather sandals. Such an easy combo that still feels elevated.

For really hot days you could dress up shorts with a fitted tank or silk cami to stay cool. Throw a cardigan or blazer over your shoulders in case it’s chilly indoors.
