Summer is well and truly here and if you’ve been thinking to yourself you may need to update your wardrobe with some comfortable and stylish shorts, then it seems you’re not alone.

A pair of stylish $12 shorts from Kmart have caught the eyes of not only influencers online but a whole heap of their followers.

It’s not hard to see why, as the Double Cloth Shorts look like the type of wardrobe staple you could easily take from a day at the beach to a night out with friends.

Made from cotton and double cloth fabric, the shorts have a paperbag waist detail and an elastic waistband with a drawstring.

Not only are they adjustable but they are also a relaxed fit, meaning they’re perfect to throw on for those hot days where comfort is key. They also come in black, white and purple.

Adelaide fashion stylist Lisa Galanopoulos took to her Instagram to share a stunning photo in the shorts, revealing that she had paired hers with a $12 white cami also from Kmart.

“This look for $24 from @kmartaus is cool and comfy, and is perfect for those warmer days, where you can just easily throw this on and go! I’m wearing the double cloth shorts ($12), and the sleeveless tie front cami ($12),” she captioned the snap.

Lisa looks super chic in the $24 ensemble as she strolls down the street, carrying a rattan beach bag under her arm.

“Love the colour of these shorts,” another person said, while another simply wrote: “Gorgeous”.

Melbourne blogger Beth also took to her Instagram to share a snap in the shorts, which just like Lisa, she decided to pair with a white top from Kmart.
