This week is Better Than Basics week! Today we’re talking all about Better Than Basic summer bottoms. Here are twenty one really great ones.

 

Do you own a few better than basic summer bottoms?

I’m guessing all of you have jeans and/or shorts in your closet – the super basic summer bottoms that we all own.

Today for day three of the Better Than Basics series, I’m sharing all about BETTER THAN BASIC summer bottoms — pants, shorts, or skirts.

 

What makes a summer top better than basic?

These are the kinds of bottoms that are a step above your basic jeans. They’re the ones that add fun and personality to your outfits.

Here are some things to look for in a Better Than Basic bottom.

  • Fabric – linen pants, denim skirts, flowy skirts, cotton skirts, etc.
  • Color – bright or saturated colors are fun and not so basic!
  • Print – stripes, polka dots, floral, gingham…lots of options here!
  • Shape – wide leg pants, jogger style pants, cropped pants, a-line skirts, pencil skirt…
  • Waist details – drawstring waistband, paper bag waist, buttons, belts…

How to wear better than basic bottoms

You can wear Better Than Basic bottoms with Better Than Basic tops (see a bunch of good options here), but also you can wear these kinds of bottoms with basic tops too!

Here are a few examples.
