white summer shorts

I’ve gotta have white summer shorts! White shorts win the prize for my favorite go-to clothing piece of the summer.

White Summer Shorts

It’s been hot, hot, hot in Florida this summer, so shorts have been my best friend. I love wearing white summer shorts because they provide a clean finish to an outfit.

Occasionally, I ask my husband to take pics for me. He usually has me laughing…he just starts clicking whether I am ready or not.

White shorts elevate a casual outfit with little extra effort. They also provide a fabulous back drop to highlight other colors. This blue patterned top really pops!

Just remember a few tips to make white shorts a little more figure flattering…

  • Tight white fabric forms unflattering creases. Choose shorts that skim, rather than cling.
  • White fabric does create the illusion of width. Pair white shorts or pants with flowing tops or use the partial tuck to allow the fabric to hang lower in the back (as I wore here and here ).

If you don’t have any white shorts, now’s the time to find some on sale for next year. Kohl’s has some great styles on sale.

    This is a great look for summer – the blue just really pops against the white! White shorts and black shorts are favorites of mine for summer because of their versatility. Thanks for linking up this week, Shellie.

    I love your white shorts, but I feel more comfortable in white capris, which I have many.
    Thank you Shellie for stopping by to share your post, always appreciate your visit!
    Did you get moved?
    Hope you have a wonderful week!

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Yes Karren, I did get moved and I will soon have both kids settled into college…phew!

    Ok, I give in. You’ve inspired me to get my white shorts out. Can almost replicate this outfit exactly. Will try it. Thank you for taking me out of my comfort zone. If only I can look half as dazzling and confident as YOU! I am still LOVING my Shellie-inspired hair cut. Stop by to check it out yesterday. Wore an outfit as colorful as Joseph’s coat. Having fun with my hair.

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Aww Leslie, that’s so sweet of you to say! I’m so glad you like your hair…no matter what I ever try with mine, I always go back to short.

  4. I love white shorts in summer, too. You paired them with a very pretty top! Love the photos where you are cracking up! ?
