Summer Has Arrived! Let’s Buy Shorts!

Summer Has Arrived! Let’s Buy Shorts!

Revel in the rest of the good weather (as long as it lasts) in one of these gorgeous pairs of shorts.

If I had the skin tone for them, I’d be wearing this pair to the office tomorrow. I’m a big fan of tailoring so I love when it’s translated seamlessly to a signature summer item that you wouldn’t automatically think of as “smart”.?This pair come in black too if you’re looking for a less standout version.

I love the earthy shade of maize of these Theory shorts. Too short for the office, they offer a very grown-up way to wear shorts at the weekend.?Contrast the chic tailoring with an urban trainer or flat sandal to create a cool but sophisticated casual look.

Theory, €210 at net-a-porter.com

The way to wear frilly lace bottoms??With something boyish and oversized for a look that’s languid and laid-back. No cropped or fitted tops… please. It will cheapen the outfit straight away. I love how these Zara shorts have been styled, with a simple, masculine-style button-front shirt.

Embrace fashion’s current love of athleisure with these pocketed shorts from Maje. The best outfits trade off clever contrasts and juxtapositions, so pair these shorts with heels rather than trainers for a look that feels fresh.

I wouldn’t usually be drawn to a scalloped hem (a bit too pretty for me), but it works really well with this no-nonsense pinstripe. The high-waisted cut is very on-trend too as this season is all about the hourglass silhouette.
