FLAT LAY

YOUR SPORTSWEAR-SHORTS OUTFIT

By Lakeisha Goedluck, June 7, 2018

It’s summer, so now’s the time to stock up on some trusty, lightweight basics. It’s a good idea trade in your go-to cargo pants or skater jeans for a pair of staple shorts instead; to stay on trend, make sure to add some sportswear shorts to your arsenal — for tips on how to style 'em, look no further.

As it’s warm out, you’re going to want to team your shorts with something airy up top. Opt for a white tee with minimal graphic detailing to give your look an instant streetwear edge. On your bottom half, pick a minimal pair of black running shorts — that way, they’ll be breezy and basic enough to throw on with different combinations throughout the season.

 

Because your base layer is fairly minimal, feel free to amp up your ensemble with your choice of outerwear. Go for a '90s hip hop-inspired brightly colored track jacket to give your outfit a retro touch. Carry on the vibe with your kicks too — a pair of chunky-soled sneakers with fluorescent accents should do the trick. Finish off your look with a simple black fanny pack and you’re good to go.
