Add some low-key prep to your jorts with a knit polo and trendy heeled mules. In this case, I personally prefer looser jean shorts to offset the tailored look of the polo, but to each their own.

I don't know about you, but this summer I plan on living in baby tees. I love the way this one is styled with a breezy button-up on top and classic jean shorts on the bottom. Pro tip: The kitschier the tee, the better.

Calling all blazer girls, this one is for you. While your blazer certainly doesn't have to be cropped, we happen to like the look when paired with a more relaxed pair of jean shorts. Overall, however, a blazer always looks good with jorts, period.
