Fun tops and shorts for easy summer fashion

Cool and comfortable is how most of us like to feel during the hot summer months, and your clothes can be one of the easiest ways to achieve that.  But dressing comfortably should still be stylish, especially when you have #MemorialDay festivities to look forward to!

The best way to dress for casual summer fashion is to style shorts with various tops, giving you a number of looks that take you from fun in the sun to those hot summer nights.

Thankfully summer shorts are not just for sports anymore, and there are many fun, sassy and fashionable styles that let you look your best, while keeping you cool.

Here are four easy-to-achieve looks for casual summer cool that you can shop for right now:

Soft and Breezy

Light, breezy shorts are the epitome of comfort and ease for summer fashion. The best part is, they can just as easily be used as a swimsuit cover up or to walk around town, as they can for an evening night out.

Our La Vida Loca short has a wonderful light woven texture and tassel tie detail that make it easy to slip into for some summer fashion fun. Plus, the shorts come with a matching top to complete the set.

The Havana Nights short is the perfect soft, summer short for everyday wear, and boast a large floral print for on-trend fashion. Pair with the Havana Nights top for some flirty, summer fun. 


Crisp and Clean

Nothing says summer like white cotton, and this cool, soft material is great for letting air breathe in and keeping you cool. It’s also easy to care for, making it a great fabric for on-the-go summer activities.

The Lucy short is 100% cotton and has a feminine scalloped detail that make you instantly stylish and oh so pretty. Paired with a crop top or cute tank, Lucy can be dressed up or down, and still be summer chic.

White tops, like our Take Off top, are easily paired with striped bottoms for a more nautical feel or #MemorialDay affair.



Comfy Casual


No summer wardrobe is complete without a trusty set of summer tees and shorts for everyday wear. Tees today are so much more flattering for women, either framing bodies with an hour-glass cut, or adding deep v-necklines for a more feminine appeal.

Tees are also a staple for the basic denim short, and can be paired with a skirt or crop pants to dress it up.

The Everyday tee is something everyone should have several of, and luckily, we have it in three colors. It’s soft modal/poly blend make it breathable, easy to care for and help keep its shape – even after lots of wear.

Our Ivy tee has a fun collegiate feel to it, and is super soft for everyday wear.

Dressed up Denim

Denim is versatile and a wardrobe essential that can pair with both casual and dressy clothing.

The combination of distressed, denim shorts with a breezy, summer top instantly adds some fashion flair to your outfit.  Pairing with a flowy or more dressy top instantly dresses up the look, while still keeping you summer cool.

Our Memorie shorts offer a high-rise cut, with a distressed look that is ready to go when you are. Perfect for the basic tee, they also pair beautifully with some of our flirtier tops, like our wrapped tie-waist Turn Up the Heat top, with plunging neckline, or new Polynesian Paradise top with bell sleeves and sexy lace details.

However you pair it up, shorts and top combos make an essential summer staple for keeping cool and embracing fun, casual fashion. Let us know if we can help you pair up your summer wardrobe!
