How to Wear Printed Shorts

Pair printed shorts with a white tee and chambray shirt like Julianne Hough.
If you've ever wondered how to style printed shorts, I think Julianne Hough has the perfect outfit inspiration. She paired her printed shorts with a white t-shirt and chambray shirt, then added a simple leather belt, thong sandals and structured tote bag to finish the look. With so many printed short options in stores now, this is a casual outfit you can easily pull together and still feel put together!

Relaxed Rebel: Margot Robbie's Denim Button-Up and Shredded Black Shorts Look for Less

Margot Robbie Look for Less
There's nothing I love more than a great outfit featuring a touch of chambray. Here Margot Robbie adds some rocker-edge to her oversized denim blouse by pairing it with distressed black shorts, hi-top sneakers and suede bags. What I love about this ensemble, aside from the edgy rebel-chic quality, is how effortless this outfit is. The minimalistic look is simple to recreate since you may already own at least one of these closet staples, plus Margot's exact pieces are more affordable than you'd think. Her One Teaspoon 'Bonitas' Cutoff Shorts and Nike Air Force 1 sneakers both retail for under $100! Read on to see the curated items I've found to recreate Margot's look, including an alternative for her destroyed shorts.
