Summer Minimalist Style: Black Surplice Top, Ikat Print Shorts, and Black Sandals

I’ve recently fallen in love with this pair of printed shorts. The funny thing is that I’ve had them for a while, but I haven’t worn them as much as I could. However, I can see that changing because I think they fit in very well with the effortless and simple style that I’m trying to adopt this summer. The fun pattern of these shorts make them a great statement piece, which translates to an easy summer outfit.

One reason that I have avoided wearing these printed shorts is because I tend to have a fear of wearing patterns. Although I aspire to one day become a pro at mixing prints, I am not quite there yet. Regardless, I think you can still put together a few fun outfits by pairing these shorts with solid pieces. With this particular outfit, I decided to go with a black surplice top because the v-neck adds a more sophisticated vibe in my opinion. But, you can also wear these shorts with a loose long sleeve sweater, crewneck top, or even a simple tank.

In terms of footwear, I paired these shorts with black minimalist sandals. However, you can also throw on a pair of white Stan Smiths or Vans for a more casual look.

What do you all think? Are you into printed shorts this summer? If so, how would you style them?
