I’m so excited to be partnering again with Walmart on today’s post! All items were selected by me. Thank you for supporting the brands that help me bring you great content!
Denim shorts are a staple in my spring and summer wardrobe and Walmart has styles for every body type and with all different inseam lengths. I’m sharing five different ways to style denim shorts featuring everything from super casual weekend looks to more elevated looks, to cute beachy vibes. All of these pieces are from Walmart Fashion, which continues to impress me with its high-quality, elevated basics, and on-trend fashion-forward pieces.
As a bonus, I also found the cutest under $14 tee shirt dress that I’m sharing at the bottom of this post. It’s a must-have to add to your summer closet and so easy to wear and style.

Shop My Favorite Denim Shorts from Walmart
For reference, I’m 5’7″ with a long torso and long legs. I typically wear a 27 in jeans or a size 4. My bra size is a 34D, and I am a true size medium in tops but sometimes size down for a more tailored fit or up for a more oversized fit. If I own the item I will always list my size and any recommendations I have for sizing up or down for quick reference. (TTS= true to size!)
Five Ways to Style Denim Shorts
DENIM SHORTS AND HOODIE
Believe it or not, this sweatshirt is actually from the men’s department! It’s so comfy and I love the beachy vibes and oversized fit. Pair with a woven or straw handbag to complete this look. It comes in five colors and I’m wearing a medium. I’m in my true size 4 in the shorts.
DENIM SHORTS AND A GRAPHIC TEE
An easy and casual summer look that I love is to pair a graphic tee with your favorite denim shorts. You can opt for a simple front tuck or if your shorts are high-waisted knot the front. Then pair with sneakers or sandals to complete the look. I’m wearing a size medium in the tee and it has an oversized fit. I’m in my true size 4 in the shorts.
DENIM SHORTS AND A BOHO BLOUSE
For a girl’s day out shopping or brunch, pair this flowy boho blouse (that’s a total Free People lookalike!) with denim shorts. You can add a wedge to dress up the look or just stick with sandals for a more casual vibe. Add a fun bag or clutch and you’re good to go. I’m in my true size medium in the blouse and in my true size 4 in the shorts.
DENIM SHORTS AND A FEMININE SWEATER
This adorable crocheted peplum sweater tee is perfect for a date night or lunch with the girls! I accessorized it with some fun rattan earrings and this gorgeous fringed woven tote, which is also from Walmart. Both of these pieces look much more expensive than they are. Snatch up this gorgeous $22 tote while it’s still in stock, I have a feeling it will go quick! I’m in a medium in the top and my true size 4 in the shorts.
DENIM SHORTS OVER A SWIMSUIT
One of my must-pack summer essentials for a beach vacation is always a few pairs of denim shorts. I love that I can throw them over my swimsuit and add a cardigan or kimono on top in case you pop into a restaurant or do some mid-afternoon shopping. This way I feel covered up but still look cute! I sized up to a large in the swimsuit and am in my true size 4 in the shorts.
I had to sneak in these adorable tie-dye slip-on sneakers! The colors are so fun and they’re extremely comfortable with a memory foam insole and a cushion at the heal. I styled them with the striped sweatshirt and graphic tee above and got my true size 8.
The Cutest Tee Shirt Dress
How adorable is this $14 tiered tee shirt dress?! Last year’s version was my top seller of all of 2020 and this season’s has the cutest little ruffled sleeves. Make the look more elevated with wedges and a straw bag or dress it down with sneakers or sandals and a denim jacket. It comes in a handful of colors and runs a little big. I’m wearing a small above.
Don’t forget Walmart’s awesome policy of free 2-day shipping and returns for purchases over $35!
