It’s summer, so now’s the time to stock up on trusty lightweight basics. And it’s a good idea to trade in your go-to cargo trousers or skater jeans for a pair of staple shorts instead. However, to stay on trend, make sure to add some sporty shorts to your arsenal – and for tips on how to style them, look no further.

As it’s warm out, you’re going to want to team your shorts with something airy up top. Opt for a white tee with minimal graphic detailing to give your look an instant streetwear edge. On your bottom half, pick a minimal pair of black running shorts – that way, they’ll be breezy and basic enough to throw on with different combinations throughout the season.


Because your base layer is fairly minimal, feel free to amp up your ensemble with your choice of outerwear. Go for a 90s hip-hop-inspired track jacket to give your outfit a retro touch. Carry on the vibe with your creps, too – a pair of chunky-soled trainers with fluorescent accents should do the trick. Finally, finish off your look with a simple black bum bag and you’re good to go.
