There is nothing more basic — or more versatile — than the shorts and t-shirt combo. We love the comfort and ease of this classic mix, which can be casually worn for a summer day at the beach, or dressed up for a post-work happy hour with friends. Our Contributing Editor, Natalie, shares a few tips on how to style her favorite shirts and shorts currently available at Old Navy.
For days at the beach, white linen shorts are ideal thanks to their light, breezy texture. Here, Natalie pairs hers with an equally lightweight dolman top worn over her swimsuit. She tops off the look with a fedora hat perfect for a sunny day by the water.
For drinks or dinner with friends, shorts and tees are easy to dress up. Here, Natalie styles hers with gold wedges, a bright cardigan (in case of a chilly evening) and a long pendant necklace. Also, she tucks in her loose dolman top to create a tailored look that’s more evening-appropriate.
We’d like to see how you style your Old Navy shorts and shirts, just post your photos with the hashtag #ONSummer to share your favorite combinations.
