If you’re looking for fashionable outfits to wear with pink shorts this summer, take a look at these 15 chic outfit ideas with pink shorts!

A pair of shorts will forever be a summer staple, no matter your age, body type, or personal style preferences. For the summer season, nothing suits better than bright colors, like pink! Pink shorts are not only extremely versatile pieces of clothing but veer on being more formal than the average pair of denim shorts. And if you’re lucky, they’re probably more comfortable too, thanks to the elastic waistband shorts!] 

If you’re convinced to try them out but have no idea where to start, you’re in luck. We’ve collated some style inspiration from our favorite fashion influencers and have put together 15 ways to wear pink shorts for all the budding style icons!

What to Wear with Pink Shorts

1. White Shirt

For those going for a more classic look, neutral-colored shirts like white are a great combination with the bright tones of pink shorts.

Combining pink with other colors can be overwhelming, particularly during the day, so toning it down with a white blouse or shirt can help sober down the look.

This isn’t to say that you can’t play dress up with your accessories and go for a pink bag and heeled pumps to amp up this look fit for a Barbie doll!

2. White Tank Top

If you’re looking for a more relaxed look but still want to stick to a neutral color, other than your shorts, a white tank is a great option to pair with pink patterned shorts.

Again, because the shorts are quite a statement, it’s a good idea to pair them with something simple and clean-cut. That being said, the loose silhouette of a button-down shirt could overwhelm the outfit and take away from your stunning shorts, so a tank or cropped white tank would be the perfect summer look.

3. Hot Pink Shirt

If you’re a fashion risk taker, why not go for a pink color shirt to pair with pink shorts for an outfit that even Barbie would be envious of?

A great way to style this in a fun way is to go for different shades of pink in your shirt and shorts, and match the rest of your accessories with one of those shades to create a statement piece in either one of the elements.

This outfit can easily be dressed up for drinks with friends with a pair of strappy sandals, gold earrings and a shoulder bag.

4. Pink T-shirt

A great option for styling a casual outfit with pink shorts is with a pink tee. It seems like a lazy outfit but styled correctly, it can create a super stylish look.

Because a t-shirt can look casual, go for a pair of tailored shorts [without an elastic waistband] to create structure and silhouette in the waist area, perfect for your t-shirt to be tucked in.

This is a great strolling on vacation look, pair with flat sandals and a baseball or straw hat!

5. Green Shirt

One of the more unique look and color combinations on our list, but still one of the best. A green shirt paired with pink shorts is an eye-catching outfit but also the perfect combination of different colors.

On a color wheel, pink and green are opposites, meaning, according to the color theory, they are complementary colors. This means that they actually pair together very well and bring out the best in each other.

This is also a great chance to bring out any statement accessories, like a pair of green heels or even a fun pink handbag.

6. White T-shirt

For a more casual look, you can’t go wrong with a white tee paired with statement pink shorts. Much like a tank top, this will help tone down the colors for a daytime look.

If you’re looking for an even more casual outfit, go for a cute graphic tee with your pink shorts, and if there are any random colors in the graphics, you can use these to match your accessories.

7. Light Pink Shirt

If you like a more feminine look but want to go for pink shorts as opposed to a pink skirt, this could be the perfect option for you.

A light pink shirt will provide a level of structure and sartorial flair to the look and plays off a mix of feminine and masculine juxtaposing elements as the shirt is structured but is in an extremely feminine color.

To tone down the outfit for an everyday look, pair it with white sneakers and even a baseball cap for a picnic in the park or any other outdoor event.

8. white Sweater

If you’re looking for a casual look to wear with pink shorts as we move into the fall months, there’s not much else chicer than a white sweater.

Shorts aren’t practical during the colder months; however, if you’re in a beachside town or going out in the evening, this is a good throw-on option that still looks put together.

9. Matching Set

Pink is a great color for date night; it’s romantic and feminine, and overall gives off ‘I’m a princess’ vibes. That’s not to say that you can’t still incorporate your personal style, and if a dress and heels aren’t your thing, then pink shorts can be a great substitute.

Pink is a super popular color, given that it suits many skin tones, and so a matching set, be that a blazer or fun top, is a no-fuss way to get a great outfit.

10. Plaid Blazer

If you’re looking for an elegant touch in your pink shorts outfit, consider completely juxtaposing it with something opposite, like a plaid blazer.

Now this isn’t exactly what Barbie would be seen sporting with her favorite pink shorts; however, if your personal style is more formal or doesn’t allow for a completely pink look, this is a great way to wear the Barbiecore trend without compromising your own preferences.

11. Pink Blazer

Dressing for formal events in the summer can be extremely difficult, particularly if it’s outdoors and during the day. A dress is likely not a good option as the wind could create an unintended Marylin moment.

Pink shorts are a great substitute, and if paired with a matching blazer in a breathable fabric like linen, it will be a great outfit.

If your event is in a park or on grass, heels are a no-no, as they will sink into the grass. Go for a pair of fun flats, or wedges if you must have some height.

12. P0p Of Color

If you enjoy making a statement with your outfits, pairing pink shorts with an element of another complementing color will look stunning. This doesn’t necessarily mean pairing another garment – it could be a pop of color in your shoes or even in your outerwear.

If your shorts are pastel pink, any color of pastels will work here. Pastel yellow is a huge trend and keeps to the feminine connotations of pink.

13. Matching Shirt

If coordinating isn’t where your natural talents lie, a matching shirt with your shorts will be the best option for you. Matching shirts and shorts can back in popularity when pajamas began to be an aesthetic worn out of the bedroom.

A pair of poplin shorts with a matching button-down shirt will not only look super on-trend but will be comfortable to be worn throughout the day, just as pajamas are.

14. Monochromatic Look

Given the release of the Barbie movie was recent, it would be a disservice not to mention an all-pink look. This aesthetic is a favorite of the Italian luxury house Valentino and is perfect if you’re willing to step outside your comfort zone for your styling.

So as not to look unintentional or messy, ensure all outfit elements are in the same shade of pink, and keep the silhouette tailored and structured.

15. Blazer Dress

A dress with shorts is not exactly a winning outfit combination, but hear us out. Most blazer dresses are far too short and end up being unwearable on their own, resulting in wearing some form of shorts underneath.

Pairing a pink blazer dress with matching tone pink biker shorts underneath will completely elevate your look while not taking away from the beauty of the dress but rather adding to it.
