It’s 2019, people, and everything about fashion these days is throwing caution to the damn wind. Those two things you thought would never go together definitely can now; there’s no stopping this train. In that same vein, you might think that shorts and blazers could never work well together. It’s understandable, as the two have very different vibes. Shorts are super casual, made for summertime outings and street style looks. Blazers have made a home for themselves in offices and it can feel odd to bring them out of the workplace. But there are actually so many blazer and shorts outfits worth trying out this summer. The two are an unlikely pair that pack a major fashion punch—and you shouldn’t disregard it.

Let this be the summer we all try something a little new. Whether that be pairing bike shorts with a brightly colored blazer or denim cut-offs with a plaid one, let yourself mix and match this season. There are so many endlessly chic ways to pair shorts and blazers that you’ve probably (most definitely) never thought of before. It’s time to throw all expectations out the window and let in the damn sunshine. (Sunshine here means, of course, blazer and shorts outfits.)

To give you a little bit of summertime outfit inspiration, I rounded 31 cool AF blazer and shorts outfit ideas you’ll definitely want to recreate. If you’ve got a pair of bike shorts and a blazer hanging in your closet, you can totally copy these looks. Just add a few fun accessories (like summer sunnies or dad sneakers) and you’re good! to! go! Get ready to blow everyone away with how stylish you are.
