Or, maybe you want to wear a casual shirt but anything other than a plain style. When it comes to wearing denim shorts in an extremely cool casual outfit, some fundamentals have to be followed to ensure that your outfit doesn’t look like you just threw together some random pieces of clothing and called it an outfit.
For example, most very casual shirts that will be appropriate to wear with your denim shorts will be pastel colour plain t-shirts, henley t-shirts, v-neck t-shirts, and dark colour graphic t-shirts. Choosing which t-shirt is best to go in your outfit will be achieved to deciding on the type of look that you want. For an outfit that has the perfect balance of super casual and stylish, opt to wear either a dark colour v-neck t-shirt or henley shirt.

Denim shorts will always go well with running shoes, which are all white or all black. Also, if you intend to wear sandals with your casual denim shorts outfit, opt to wear them in either black or brown, which will go well with any type of shirt that you decide to wear.
You might be wondering how you can incorporate any type of formal wear with your casual denim shorts and still look good. Well, let us first understand the main principals to take into consideration when pairing formal with casual pieces.

Ok, now that we got the principals out of the way, let’s look at some examples of formal casual denim shorts outfits that you can create for the late spring season.

Obviously, wearing a white dress shirt will be the safest choice when paired with any colour blazer, but also colours such as light blue, black, and navy blue can be worn as well. A good colour for your blazer with denim shorts will be black or beige.
Ditch the running shoes when wearing your denim shorts in a formal casual outfit and opt for something more stylish and appropriate. The footwear that you want to have on will be dark brown loafers or leather sandals.
