I get asked ALL the time if it’s okay to wear shorts over 40…how to wear shorts over 40… what my favorite shorts are, etc.
There’s no doubt that wearing shorts over 40 is TRICKY. But, in this post, I’m going to show you 2 fail-safe outfits from Walmart to help you rock your shorts at any age!
I just did a video on wearing shorts over 40 including inseam length, rise, and more.
#1 | Denim Shorts
Finding the perfect pair of denim shorts is hard. Especially if you’re on a budget! I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of affordable denim shorts…and I found them!! These shorts are by Scoop and have a wonderful, roomy boyfriend fit for women over 40. I love the slight distressing and frayed hem, 4” inseam, and high rise. The wash is perfect for summer and the cotton fabric is lightweight and breathable. They are also REALLY soft!
When I wear shorts, I like to have more coverage on my chest and arms. So, I styled the Scoop denim shorts with a fun rust-colored, polka dot top, and a lightweight cardigan. I don’t usually wear prints, but this top is the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. The print makes it sweet, but the halter neckline is really sexy. It also reminds me of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman! 😉
The cardigan is SO paper-thin that even if you live in the sweltering heat, you’ll appreciate this layer. It also comes in 8 other colors! I finished off the look with some espadrille wedges that are comfy and chic, and in a very versatile color.
Unfortunately, this exact bag is sold out but it does come in a beautiful white version!
#2 | Green Cargo Shorts
If you’re looking for another pair of cute shorts you can wear running errands, just hanging out at home, or at a casual dinner, these green cargo shorts are perfect! They’re so comfortable, have a frayed hem, and I LOVE the button fly detail. The fit and quality is great…especially considering the price.
