Eyelet Shorts Dressed Up and Down

As everyone's summer staple, shorts are easy to wear and they're comfortable. Just because they're basic, doesn't mean they have to be boring.  The key to turning shorts into a chic summer outfit is how you style them.

Eyelet continues to be a huge trend each summer because of its cool and airy fabric and it adds a feminine touch.  Eyelet shorts are a sweet and simple option from your everyday colored or denim shorts and you can style them up or down for casual to dressy.  


Look 1 - Casual
For a relaxed, casual look, dress down the shorts by adding a vintage tee and sneakers.    





Look 2 - Dressed Up
For a dressed up monochrome look, I paired the shorts with a white button down shirt, neutral wedges and belt.



Look 3 - Everyday
For an everyday look, I paired the shorts with a chambray shirt, and flats.
I added yellow accessories for a pop of color.



My eyelet shorts are from Gap and are currently sold out but I found several cute options:





Do you like the eyelet trend for summer?  How would you style eyelet shorts?

  4. I adore the eyelet trend and have already acquired an eyelet dress, top, and a white eyelet shorts very similar to yours. All your three looks are super cute and really perfect for the each style you are going after. I especially adore the dressed up look; the belt, shoes both fab, and all white outfit so polished.
