When you think of summer and happy colors, what is the first that comes to mind? For me, it’s yellow. Maybe it’s because I think of warm sunshine or pretty yellow flowers, but whatever it is, it makes that the winning color.
Do you wear yellow when it comes to fashion? I’ve heard friends say that they’re not comfortable wearing bold colored pants and shorts. It’s just not something we regularly do unless we’re a big fashion follower.
I’m here to tell you ladies, that some yellow shorts for your spring and summer looks will bring you all the fashion happiness and joy! In case you don’t believe me or need some inspiration, I’m going to show you 15 cute outfits to wear with yellow shorts!
1. Yellow Striped Shorts Outfit
These striped, yellow, woven shorts are too cute to handle! I love the simplicity of this outfit, too. She’s letting the shorts steal the spotlight, and rightfully so! She’s wearing a white, cropped, tank top with it, but you could also wear a tee or a bodysuit! Keep it white though.
A pair of white slides would be really cute with this outfit, like the ones I’m wearing in H&M Summer look OOTD!
2. Yellow Paper Bag Shorts Outfit
I love a good pair of paper bag bottoms. It’s just the belt and the top of the bottoms that give an illusion of being scrunched, like when you squish the top of a paper bag.
Here’s a cute way to wear yellow ones with a light gray tee tucked into it and black sandals to accent!
3. Cute & Casual Yellow Shorts Outfit
This is a cute way to style your yellow shorts if you’ve got just regular shorts. There isn’t anything fancy about them or the blue tank she’s wearing with them. It’s cute and casual. You can usually find nice shorts like this pretty cheap at Old Navy!
4. Floral Yellow Shorts Outfit
Hello, floral yellow shorts! See, it’s so perfect. Flowers on pretty and flowy yellow shorts is the perfect spring and summer bottom. She’s wearing a white, off-the-shoulder, ruffled crop top with them which makes her look even more dainty.
A pair of wedges, espadrilles, shorter heeled sandals, mules, slides, or slip on sandals would be super cute with this outfit! So many shoe options!
5. Lace Up High Waisted Yellow Denim Shorts Outfit
These are mega cute shorts! The full lace up front is what does all the talking here. It’s fun that they’re high waisted, so there is more to lace up, and the distressed edges give it some extra sass.
She’s wearing a cropped, knit sweater with these, but you could easily wear a cropped tank, tee, or even a regular tee or bodysuit! The point here is to not be afraid of yellow denim!
6. High Waist Pleated Yellow Shorts Outfit
Pleated shorts don’t get the love the deserve, truly. Look how great these (and the big accent buttons) look with her white top, oversized denim shirt, and white sneakers! This is a look anyone can pull off and wear to go out for the day!
7. Yellow Vinyl Shorts Outfit
These yellow vinyl shorts are amazing. Every part of this outfit is, actually, from the knotted belt over the high waist to the gorgeous, floral, sleeveless top she’s wearing. The vinyl shorts, though, is a great way to get a different texture into your look!
We can’t see her shoes, but I really hope she’s wearing colored sandals or heels! Truth be told, this would be an amazing outfit to wear to Spain.
8. Yellow Scalloped Shorts Outfit
Scalloped shorts were a big thing for a couple years not too long ago. They sort of evolved from plain scallops to lace scalloped and were even better. These yellow scalloped shorts are sweet with a super flowy off-the-shoulder top!
A pair of yellow, lace-up sandals, like these I’m wearing from Urban Outfitters, would be perfect with this outfit!
9. Yellow Gingham Shorts Outfit
To go along with the happy summer feels, these high- waisted, gingham shorts are ready to go out on a picnic. Seriously, how cute are these! With a white tank tucked in and matching white bag, this is a perfect spring or summer outfit!
10. Yellow Boyfriend Shorts Outfit
Maybe you’re needing shorts that pass the finger test and are a bit more conservative! These yellow boyfriend shorts do the trick, with a gray sweater (can substitute for a v-neck tee or similar) and leopard shoes for some pattern and pop! A great way to still wear yellow shorts while keeping yourself covered up some.

11. Yellow Shorts With Animal Print Top Outfit
A fierce combination, these yellow shorts and leopard strapless top! I love the addition of the belt. It brings a little more neutral color into the outfit and tones it down some.
A pair of black or tan shoes that match the belt would be super cute with this summer look!
12. Yellow Shorts and Gingham Top Outfit
These mustard yellow shorts look really great with blue. Yellow and blue are great friends, actually. I love the gingham top tucked in, but most of all, I really love the shoes she’s wearing with this outfit! It’s a stylish look that deserves to be out on the town!
13. Yellow Athletic Shorts Outfit
Athleisure is an excellent way to get in bright colored clothing items. Right now, biker shorts are making their way into fashion, but athletic shorts like these yellow adidas will never go out of style.
She’s paired a graphic tee and sneakers with these shorts. It’s simple and a great use of yellow comfy clothes!
14. Fall Yellow Shorts Outfit
These high-waisted, yellow shorts look great with her black and white striped turtleneck sweater tucked in! Adding black heels and a black purse to pull from the stripes was the perfect choice.
15. Neon Yellow Shorts Outfit
Neon was a big spring and summer trend for 2019, so it’s no surprise that we see neon yellow shorts happening! This is a cute work appropriate outfit, don’t you think? I love the contrasting colors: a black top, white blazer, and white/yellow jewelry.
