As the weather starts to warm up and outdoor activities resume, I’m putting away my winter clothes for something a little more light. Layering is less essential but still a good thing to go back to when figuring out how to spice up the basic warm weather uniform. The past few summers I’ve taken advantage of the moderate climate here in Portland, but I’m looking to venture out of my comfort zone and try to style shorts more often.
It’s safe to say that keeping to your authentic self is a little more challenging when wearing shorts. I, in particular, always find myself looking a little too bland and basic. The trick that seems to help me switch things up is to explore matching different colors, wear more interesting shoes, or throw a hat into the mix. I’ve put together a few outfits I will be using to inspire my SS21 wardrobe, hopefully these can help you stay true to your own style over the next few months.
