We’re talking an easy-breezy maxi dress, lightweight linen blouses, and comfy, cute shorts. But of course, each warm-weather piece comes with its own set of shopping difficulties.

We’ll back up a few steps while you adjust to the idea. Though the fashion community loves a novel and complex get-up, at the end of the day, comfort still trumps all. Usually, during the summer that means denim shorts, but there’s been a sudden rise in what’s being coined as the “Soccer Look.” (With team women’s national soccer team kicking major butt this World Cup, the inspiration is well met.)

Celebs Are Wearing This Denim Short–and-Sneaker Outfit on Repeat

They arguably work harder than any other summer closet staple, so finding cool new ways to wear them is always on our minds.
