I had a friend of mine who passed away a few months ago. I remember the questions she asked me the day when we were having a drink with her in the evening. She said “Rachael I don’t know whether I should return these maroon shorts or not coz I have no idea of any clothes that I can wear with them to avoid looking outdated?” May her soul Rest in Peace. From that I knew that there are many other people who might be there pondering and having the same question like her. That’s why I decided to write this article giving you the basics and guidelines on what to wear with maroon shorts.
Therefore if you recently bought or planning to buy a pair of maroon shorts, you should also shop for tops with
neutral colors like white, black, cream or grey, among others. These are neutral colors which will definitely match with maroon. The main reason I fancy maroon shorts and pants is that they are made from smooth cotton fabrics making them comfortable to wear all day long. They will make you stay relaxed during weekends and in the evening hours. If you want to stay relaxed during weekends, you should try maroon shorts with outfits that we will share with you shortly.
How To Wear Maroon Shorts
For you to stay relaxed during weekends and in the evening, you can wear maroon shorts with fitted comfortable tops (like shirts, t-shirts, tanks tunic and Cami) and shoes that are comfortable and won’t squeeze your toes causing them to pain. In this case you can opt for Flats, Converse, Sneakers, Flip-Flop and Peep Toe Wedges.
For instance, choose a nice pair of maroon shorts, pair them with a relaxed round neck white t-shirt. Complement the trend with a shoulder bag, armlets and dark shades to protect your eyes from direct sun-rays. You may add a nice watch to flatter the trend. Finish the outfit with Flip-Flop and you will be good to go for your relaxed weekend. Wow, look at how elegant the lady in the picture below is!
