Printed Shorts with Neutral and Bright Fitted Tanks

Before starting my #6MonthsWithoutShopping challenge and trying to hit 30 wears on more of my wardrobe, I'd been admiring a pair of printed shorts at Jeanswest. It was a good motivation for me to get the printed shorts I already have and wear them more often. This post brings them to 14 wears, even though the lightweight fabric and relaxed cut make them perfect for a hot day.

The outfit formulas followed below are incredibly similar, but I think they look different just by changing from a neutral to a colourful top. Anything to justify the huge box of fitted tanks I have in multiple colours! 😉

What I wore:

simple basic grey tank with printed shorts outfit SAHM style hot day studded sandals | Away From Blue

printed shorts, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather | Away From The Blue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Ava elephant pendant teething necklace
TankTarget grey marle tank top
ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale, 44% off!)
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I really liked my outfit last time I wore this teething necklace and Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag together, so it was good wearing the combination again. They go quite well together!

Grey and blue is another one of my usual combinations. It's been such a long time since I wore this Target tank, a shame as it's a really good basic. A nice neutral tank went well with the busy printed shorts.

Ran a few errands in the morning and had a haircut too. You might have notice my hair doesn't look any different! I've decided to grow it out and donate it, so just had a trim. I usually grow my hair long and then change my mind and cut it short again, so this way it will benefit a sick child. Completely inspired by my friend who grew her hair for two years in order to donate it.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Target grey tank, printed shorts, Rebecca Minkoff studded sandals, aquamarine Mini MAC bag.

BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

I liked the neutral tank and printed shorts combo above but wanted to try something a little more colourful the next time I wore these shorts. I like blue and yellow together so this tank seemed like a good choice. I mentioned on Instagram that this isn't a 'flattering' look.

When doing my wardrobe detox with a personal stylist two years ago, soon after buying these shorts, she pointed out that they didn't hit at the slimmest part on my waist (none of my tummy region is slim after having my beautiful babies!). It's easy to disguise by wearing the shorts with similar colours. But some days, you just want to wear a cheerful bright yellow tank and enjoy the colour combination more than the way the outfit flatters your post-baby body. I'm grateful for the advice of the stylist (she was so knowledgable and helpful!) but I'm also going to wear what makes me happy even if it doesn't look the best.

While this outfit does seem to highlight my rounded 'mum-tum', these shorts and blue and yellow together make me happy. Even if it did feel a little overly bright for a quiet day with not much else on other than a trip to the post office, I enjoyed wearing this.

You don't have to pair colourful printed shorts with a neutral top, you can wear a complimentary colour for an extra touch of brightness to your outfit. Neutral shoes are a good addition to a bright outfit like this.

30 Ways To Wear Blue Printed Shorts ~ #30wears Challenge

With summer approaching, seemed like the perfect time to feature another pair of shorts for this month's 30 ways to wear post! It's these cute blue 'Scarlette' printed soft shorts from Jeanswest.

30 Ways To Wear: Blue Printed Shorts


30 Ways To Wear Blue Printed Shorts: Summer Outfit Ideas | awayfromblue


Cost Per Wear:

I bought these blue printed shorts at Jeanswest back in 2014, so I don't remember the exact price! A similar pair of printed shorts I bought more recently were $35.99, so I'd assume these were around the same price. It means they are just over the $1 cost-per-wear figure people aim to get to, but given that they still look brand new and I still love them, I'll definitely get them down to less than a dollar per wear!

Blue Printed Shorts With Grey Tees


3 ways to wear blue printed shorts: with grey tops in summer | awayfromtheblue

A grey tee is a classic fall-back for me. Not sure what to wear? Throw on a grey top or tee! The neutral colour works so well with any print and is a simple fuss-free way to get dressed quickly.



Printed Shorts And Basic Tanks


ways to wear blue printed shorts with plain tops and tanks | awayfromblue

Just like the grey tops above, other basic block colours work well with printed shorts. I like bold colour combinations with these shorts like the pink and purple tanks, but of course you can stick with other neutrals like black too.


Blue Printed Shorts And Yellow

As you've seen in the outfit photos above, I like adding little yellow touches when wearing these blue shorts. Yellow and blue is just such a cheerful colour combination! Basic yellow tanks like the ones above pair so nicely with prints, as you can let the colour mix be the star without worrying about prints clashing, keeping things nice and simple.


Printed Shorts In A Monochrome Outfit


5 ways to wear different monochrome printed shorts outfits | awayfromtheblue

As much as I love wearing other colours with these shorts, sometimes you just want a classic monochromatic outfit. Blue is a very common colour in my wardrobe, so I've had a lot of blue tops I could wear with these shorts! You can keep things entirely monochromatic, or use the monochrome outfit base to add other colours through your accessories like I have with the necklaces and pink bag.


Blue Printed Shorts And Light Layers


4 ways to layer printed shorts outfits in summer: vest and kimonos | awayfromblue

Shorts are definitely a summer staple, but you can layer them ever so slightly despite the heat. Sleeveless vets in contrasting colours, or bright kimonos are nice layers to add for some extra interest to your outfit without overheating!



Printed Shorts And Ankle Boots


outfit ideas 3 ways to wear printed shorts in spring or fall | awayfromblue

When it's not quite summer or summer is starting to fade, you can still wear your shorts. I like to wear ankle boots with shorts for spring and autumn, and of course you can add a cosy knit like the blue cardigan or grey jumper if you need a little extra warmth. It's a good way to get more wear from your favourite shorts.



Print Mixing: Printed Shorts And Stripes


outfit ideas for print mixing striped tops and printed shorts | awayfromtheblue

I've shown a lot of basic block colour pieces with these printed shorts, but it's fun to pattern mix with them too! I really like wearing stripes with these shorts - I find the navy and white stripes tie in with the colours in the print really nicely, but other colours of stripes like the grey and white work well too.



Blue Printed Shorts And Detailed Tops


how to wear detailed embroidered tops with printed shorts 3 outfit ideas | awayfromblue

Took me a while to think of how to classify these outfits! The trio is all quite detailed tops, paired with the printed shorts. Despite the tops being interesting statement pieces on their own, I think they all work so nicely with the top as the colours with white and blue echo the colours in the print of the shorts. Some fun and different outfits that show you don't just have to stick to pairing only basics with printed pieces.

Monochrome Printed Shorts Outfits for Summer

I love my soft printed shorts. They make summer dressing easy, particularly for a summer that's as hot as this one is. Take a pair of printed shorts, a similarly coloured top and you have an easy monochrome outfit that's perfect for beating the summer heat.

Even though I ended up 'redoing' one of the outfits a few days later as I didn't like the accessories!

What I wore:

monochrome navy printed shorts outfit summer road trip rebecca minkoff regan bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon | awayfromtheblue
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
SingletMEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O Zibibo
ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

Wore this for the longest drive I've ever done, a roadtrip to see my friend who had recently moved to Kilcoy. It's about an hour and a half from Brisbane, and there was roadworks so it took longer than expected. She told me it was an hour and a half and yet google suggested it had a shorter route, so I wasn't too worried when we set off slightly later than intended. I quickly realised Google was wrong when we hit our first patch of traffic! Thankfully my sweet friend let me stay a little longer so that the whole day wasn't taken up by driving, and our kids got some time to play together.

With the navy tank, printed shorts and Regan satchel bag I added the purple teething necklace to add just a little extra colour and stop my outfit being too monochromatic. While the tank and printed shorts are different shades of blue, I really liked this outfit. It was wonderful catching up with my friend too. The kids had a great time together, and it was nice to see them all before their sibling arrived (her due date was the very next day, but baby stayed in a little longer!).

Last worn: navy tank, printed shorts, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel.

Perfect for pregnancy: navy tank in third trimester.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

No, you're not seeing double. I really did wear the top and shorts together twice. The first time I wore it, I wasn't sure on the shoes. I picked the ballet flats because it was a wet day and these ones are closed in and have rubber soles, good for the rain. But when I looked at the photos after I took them, I hated the shoes with the outfit. I was only working from home that day, with the daycare pickup and drop off, so I resolved to try the tee and shorts together again on Friday, but with different accessories.

I much preferred the studded sandals with the shorts, and as it was my day off I spent the morning at my ABA mother's group before going out for lunch and some shopping with my sister. So I prefered the days activities too, much nicer than working, ha!

Thought I'd include both very similar outfits to show you that if you're not enjoying an outfit, maybe all you need to do is change up the accessories! I really liked the colourblock tee with these shorts, the pink panel on the back added such a nice touch with the black shorts and I'll probably wear this combination again, with different accessories again.

How You Can Wear It:

Printed shorts are so easy to wear. Basics are a good pairing with any kind of print in your wardrobe. Neutrals is a good rule of thumb, greys and blacks work well with most prints no matter what colours are in the print. You can always go more colourful though, and wear a piece that matches a colour in the print for a simple monochromatic outfit.

Boxing Day Sales! Bright Tanks and Printed Relaxed Fit Shorts

I love printed pieces, especially stripes, and given the choice between a plain piece and a printed piece I'll usually go for the print! Over the past couple of years I've been really trying to focus more on adding basics to my wardrobe - nice plain pieces that go with anything in my wardrobe. Plain doesn't have to mean boring though, as you can see from these fun colourful tanks. Simple style and cut but bright and cheerful colours.

For their first wear, I wore these bright tanks with some relaxed and soft printed shorts. Easy summer SAHM dressing.

What I wore:

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I was excited to wear these two new pieces together, I bought them both during separate shopping trips at the Jeanswest sale. I like that these shorts have pockets too. I was surprised to see how nicely the blue tank works with the aqua bag - I wouldn't change anything about this outfit! It was so comfortable and perfect for a hot summer day.

We took each of the boys shopping separately to let them pick out Christmas gifts for each other, then watched Santa's arrival parade at out local shopping centre. (I wore this earlier in December). To finish off a busy morning, we had swim lessons. It was a much more relaxing and quiet afternoon!


Last worn: black Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC. First time I've worn the blue tank and the printed shorts as they are recent purchases.

Why I wore it:

I've worn these blue printed shorts with a yellow top before, and my little mustard yellow micro Regan bag. I like blue and yellow together, and this is the first outfit I thought about when I tried on this yellow tank in store. Even if it is incredibly similar to the last time I wore these shorts with yellow!

It was a quiet Sunday, just a couple of errands in the morning, but I loved how bright and colourful this outfit was. I'm looking forward to wearing this tank a lot more - perfect addition to my wardrobe.

How You Can Wear It:


An ideal wardrobe would have the perfect balance of plain pieces and printed pieces to allow for a lot of outfit options. Basic plain pieces don't have to be neutrals - add a little colour with bright basics that still pair just as nicely with printed pieces as neutrals do!

    Shein White Crochet Trim Kimono, Monochrome Printed Shorts Outfits

    A while back Shein asked me to pick a few pieces for another collaboration. I picked out a navy swing dress as well as this white crochet trim kimono. I love my printed kimono collection, but wanted something a little more plain to pair with some of my printed shorts for summer.

    What I wore:

    Shein white crochet kimono with grey tank black Jeanswest parker printed shorts monochrome summer outfit LV neverfull | away from blue

    jeanswest parker printed shorts, Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | away from the blue

    Necklace: Lovisa gold filigree heart pendant
    TankCotton On 'eternity' tank in charcoal marle
    ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
    ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
    Bracelets: the usual Lovisa rose gold beaded bracelet stack
    BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

    Why I wore it:

    This was supposed to be a quiet day at home with the boys, but ended up with us getting their grandparents to babysit at the last moment as I had to go into the city with hubby in the morning. I am so very thankful that we live nearby to our parents, they help us so much.

    I took the chance to wear a proper necklace instead of a teething one for a change! The rose gold heart matches nicely to my rose gold bracelet stack. The first time I wore these shorts I paired them with a bright tank, but when I bought them I was thinking about wearing them with greys for a monochromatic kind of outfit. I've worn the shorts with grey tees before, but I really liked this fitted grey tank. Even if it took me a while to accept my post baby bulge in tight clothes at first!

    First time I've worn this kimono, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on it. As mentioned above, it came free from Shein. It actually arrived super quickly via courier, which I wasn't expecting. It did however arrive completely crushed, as expected! Nothing a quick wash and couldn't sort out. This kimono is an air-dry only one, no ironing needed, which is a bonus. Threw it in the washing machine and left it to air dry.

    In terms of quality, it had a couple of loose threads I had to cut before I wore it, but no more have appeared since, even after the wash. I like the crochet detail, it was quite popular on Instagram too. The pretty detail on the back is definitely the best thing about it, I don't have any kimonos like that. Even with the detail on the back and the crochet trim, it's so easy to wear as it's a neutral white that goes with everything. Great if you have printed shorts like these that might be tricky to pair with printed kimonos. Pleased to have added it to my summer wardrobe.


    Last worn: grey tank, Parker printed shorts, studded sandals, Louis Vuitton neverfull. First time I've worn the kimono as it's a new arrival.

    Why I wore it:

    Squinting like crazy in these pics! I'd gotten excited when the sun was behind a cloud, setup the camera and tripod and then just as I went to take the pics the sun popped out again, ha!

    As the previous day (above) hadn't gone according to plan, we fitted more Christmas fun into this day. We spend the morning in the pool as it was so hot, and then baked some Christmas tree brownies in the afternoon, before taking a walk around the local Christmas lights in the evening. It feels strange to be writing about Christmas so close to the end of January, but I've been so behind with blogging pics!

    I've worn the navy tank and printed shorts together before, it's a combination I really like. With the white in the print on the shorts I thought the white kimono was a good layer to tie it all together really nicely.


    Last worn: crochet trim kimono (above), navy tank, printed shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff guitar strap, Rebecca Minkoff Love bag.

    White Kimonos Under $50:






    How You Can Wear It:


    A kimono is a fun light layer to add to summer outfits, to get the benefits of a complete piece on your outfit without overheating. If you have a lot of printed pieces in your wardrobe, consider a block colour kimono in a neutral shade like this white one. It doesn't have to be boring though, even with a neutral colour you can get fun details like lace, crochet or tseels to add a little more interest to your kimono and outfit.

    Rebecca Minkoff Regan and Studded Guitar Strap with Printed Shorts & Tanks

    In the Rebecca Minkoff sale I bought the Regan satchel in navy and the crystal studded guitar strap. I knew they would look great together, and they really do! Paired the bag and guitar strap combo with some fun tanks and printed shorts. These soft shorts were so helpful in the summer heatwaves.

    What I wore:

    BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with Rebecca Minkoff Crystal Star Shoulder Guitar strap

    Why I wore it:

    With the crystal embellished guitar strap and the shimmery yet subtle metallic tank, this felt like a dressier version of the standard shorts and tank outfit combo I'd been wearing all summer. I didn't wear it anywhere special though, just to work from home and do the daycare drop off pick up. I spent some time in the afternoon with my mum as we tried to get to the bottom of the washing machine troubles I've been having and I stuffed my face with cookies she brought over.

    A rather uneventful day for such a pretty outfit, but I'm sure I'll wear the tank and printed shorts together again soon, I really liked the combination.


    Last worn: metallic tank, Parker printed shorts, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff embellished guitar strap, Rebecca Minkoff Regan.

    NailsOPI Koala Bear-y

    Why I wore it:

    How perfect is the statement necklace with the embellished bag strap?! I really loved the combination of accessories. Pulled this outfit together as I wanted to wear these shorts again. I was aiming to hit 30 wears on them by the end of summer, but as I didn't wear them weekly as I needed to in order to hit 30 wears, I didn't quite get there. These still have another 8 wears to go! I was hunting through my wardrobe for something different to wear with them. I like blue and pink together so don't know why I haven't tried this combo before.

    The satin tank is another take on the shimmery metallic tank worn in the first outfit. As you can see all I did was change the colours in this outfit, otherwise it's the exact same formula. Outfit formulas are the best when you're a busy mum, you just take what you liked from a previous outfit and change a piece or two to come up with a whole new look. Easy!

    Wore this for a quiet day. Ran a few errands in the morning. Before grocery shopping, we went to the opshop looking for hats for the boys. How do their heads grow so quickly?! Managed to find a hat and also picked up a pair of shorts for myself, you might have seen them in my haul video.

    Metallic or Satin Tanks Under $50:







    How You Can Wear It:

    Printed shorts and a plain tank is a staple summer outfit, and a wonderful outfit formula to follow as you can just pick a different tank for a whole new look. A plain colour will always look good with a busy print. You can add some extra interest to your tanks by choosing an interesting fabric, like metallic or satin.
