White Shorts Styling Tips

Color

The classic color white pairs well with any color, including white. From solid tees, polo shirts, and oversized tees to tanks, white shorts can be worn with any color and style of top.

Bright colors like vibrant greens or coral complement the white color well while adding a pop of color and balance to the color. Dark classic colors like black and navy blues will create a great contrast against the white shorts. And light colors like pink, orange, or turquoise are a great color addition to white without creating a drastic contrast.

There is also nothing wrong with pairing white shorts with white tops. And to make these outfits pop, you will need to go with bold accessories, shoes, or handbags.

Patterns

If the white shorts are in solid white, they can be paired with any pattern, and the white also pairs with prints like floral and plaid.

For a nautical look, seek a blue and white stripes top. Florals are summer's favorite prints; lucky for you, these patterns pair well with white shorts.

Jewelry

When it comes to pairing your outfit with jewelry, you can't go wrong with silver or gold. Silver is versatile, and it will look stark and professional. Gold, on the other hand, will offer a warm and earthy vibe.
