We’re all about the summer fashion at the moment, and you’ve probably guessed by now that we are serious fans of the lightest, brightest and most importantly warmest months of the year! Now that summer is practically upon us, it is well past time to shed those heavy layers and to enjoy some lighter and more revealing fashions such as shorts.
Even though you may not yet be a fan, shorts are one of the most useful things in your wardrobe during the summer months, and are the perfect everyday attire since a pair of shorts is both practical and casual. If you have a quick through the high street shops or even online, you can find a dizzying area of shorts of all lengths that can look whatever your age, shape or style. If you fancy investing in a new pair of shorts this summer, then check out some of these great picks from both online and the high street.
We’ve mentioned it before and we’ll mention it again, one of the key trends of this summer is vibrant floral embroidery, particularly when it comes to denim pieces, so why not nab yourself a fab pair of denim shorts that feature this cute trend. Denim shorts are always in fashion and especially if you love jeans, they are the perfect piece to transition to in the summer. This lovely pair from Goldigga features some elastane in their material content meaning that not only will they keep their shape, but that they won’t be constricting or rub on those hot summer days. The embroidery is subtle and lovely so they’ll still look good even when embroidery isn’t such a big trend as it is currently, and even better is the price tag of just £10.99! So there’s nothing to stop you really; they are available in UK sizes 8 to 16.
Roxy is one seriously trendy outdoor and sportswear brand and they do boast some lovely pieces, particularly in their beach-inspired summer collections. For a pair of shorts that will look great with a little blazer and pumps or just as good with bare feet and a bikini, we absolutely love this pair. In a gorgeous raspberry red, these shorts are in quite a preppy style meaning that you can feel comfortable wearing them both at the beach and in the city. Also available in black and the palest bleached blue, they are available in waist sizes 25 to 32 and cost £40.
Finally for a slightly more dressy pair of shorts, this pair of jacquard design ones will be perfect for a smart-casual look. In a flattering loose style with wide black hems, these shorts and both elegant and unusual and will look great this summer. They also look much more designer and expensive than they actually are; they come from the Falmer Heritage brand which is available at Matalan, and they cost a very reasonable £16. Even better, this style is available up to UK size 20.
