This summer outfit ‘mistake’ is cool again – 8 looks to prove it


Before I dive in I wanna put it out there I think fashion “rules” are stupid and outdated. We’ve all gotten past the point of letting someone else’s opinion dictate what we wear or don’t wear because, well, the style is so personal. That being said, I’m sure you can think of a few fashion mistakes you’ve been warned about before, whether it’s wearing white after Labor Day or mixing gold and silver jewelry. An arbitrary style mistake that has managed to stick with me for years is wearing shorts, especially denim shorts, with boots.

I can’t tell you where I first read this tidbit, but it’s been in the back of my mind for years now, and I think it’s finally time to get rid of it for good. . I am not alone here.

Coming up, check out all the cool outfits with shorts with boots that are off the gram right now and get inspired to dive into the combo yourself.
