Remix Your Jean Shorts

The obvious staples of summer include jean shorts, tank tops, and sandals – are you feeling me? But sometimes these go-to items can get boring pretty fast! Luckily, I’ve brainstormed some fun new ways to remix your favorite jean shorts! Take some style inspiration from these simple swaps:

Crop Top

During the high noon heat, there’s no better way to keep your cool than lounging poolside in a bikini and a crop top! Take a little bit of summer with you wherever you go by layering a short crop top over your favorite bikini! Paired with high-waisted shorts, these tops look absolutely adorable!


So maybe the sun didn’t decide to shine today and you’ve got some gloomy skies to deal with – avoid being caught in a mid-summer’s rainstorm empty handed by bringing along an adorable printed sweatshirt. You’ll obviously look adorable and come prepared for whatever adventures await you!


While the days may be hotter than hell, the night still tends to carry a bit of a chill – especially at the beach! Combat the ever-changing weather by bringing along a lightweight sweater in a neutral gray or cream that can easily layer over whatever you’re wearing. Keeping your cool was never easier!

Graphic Tee

Having fun with what you wear is what style is all about! Go for a popular novelty print like pineapples, donuts, or lemons – gosh, even I’m hungry for a printed top now! Pull colors from your graphic tee and accessorize accordingly for the best balance between playful and pulled together.

Button Up

Button-ups are only for the boys, you know? You too can layer on a comfortable collared look over some well-loved denim shorts and your go-to tank top for a boy-meets-girl look. Or you can get country with it and slip on a gingham printed button up and some daisy dukes for a truly festive summertime look!

Denim on Denim

This is such a great trend that dates back to the fun-loving 80’s! Why not layer your favorite denim jacket or soft chambray top over some old cutoffs for a casual look that shows your love for the vintage era of punk rock and acid wash!

Now that you’re full of inspirational ways to mix up your favorite jean short – what you going to wear on this beautiful summer’s day? Let me know your thoughts below in a comment!

I especially like the outfit with the sweater and black sandals. Where can the sandals be purchased?
