Your summer short game needs to work harder than that, go to pair of cheeky denim-cutoffs, and while your daisy dukes deserve their time in the sun, fashion’s feeling modern silhouettes that are so damn versatile. A variation of the jogger short, these shorts are looser, more comfortable and won’t cling to your thighs in the heat. Here’s our take on sophisticated shorts that embrace the sports-luxe look, and will bring athletic chic and cool comfort to wherever you happen to stretch your pins this summer.
Blending in rather than standing out is easy with chic city shorts. This very leggy look is office-apt (A high waist makes you look taller as well as more put-together), and forms part of an urban trend where more formal attire, like blazers and heels, are used to create looks that generate plenty of visual interest instead of making the wearer blend in with the rest of the corporate drones. With a few simple tweaks and adjustments, it’s also very easy to take these shorts from day to night or from the office to cocktails. Have-to-have accessories with which to pair this edgy pink leather number with, include: a lightweight statement bomber, a leather satchel, and matching tonal accessories.
Those with an eye for adventure and looking to make their great escape this summer should slip into a pair of sateen navy tailored shorts. The look is kind of sporty, then taken to almost touristy places when worn as part of an ensemble that includes statement sunglasses, a backpack and our new favourite sneaker, the gazelle. Depending on what needs ticking off on your to-do list, this short is just right for that unfussy holiday look you’ve been looking forward to cultivating all winter long. The clincher? If your snake-hipped, the cinched waist will create the illusion of curves, but it’s slimming too. Either way, you’re about to look your living-your-best-vacation-life loveliest.
Summer Print Shorts
When the mood is chill, flirty cotton shorts in a summery print like palazzo women’s shorts will add interest to any outfit and help you get your sea legs. In this case, it’s a very kicked back beach ensemble of Birkenstocks, Yankees cap, round-frame tortoiseshell sunglasses, oversized white shirt, tote bag, crop top and a shawl-slash-towel that will make wherever you are feel like a day at the beach. The easy fit shorts have an elasticised waistband for easy access and because they look as good on the beach as they do in the city, you’ll be slipping in and out of them for casual date nights, summer swims and whatever other activities calls for you to free your knees and feel the breeze.
Let’s talk length for a minute before we talk about flattery, and knowing the right fit and style for your body type. The length of your shorts is important to know how complimentary they are, and fortunately, many designs like palazzo shorts, have caught on, and are selling shorts by the length of the inseam. The key with shorts, and women casual short skirt for summer, and virtually anything else, is to avoid drawing a line at an unflattering part of your body. If you’re not fond of your knees, then don’t choose a pair of women’s mini shorts with a edge that hits directly at or above the knee, or you will, in effect, be pointing an arrow at them. The edge of your shorts is a detail that attracts the eye, so make sure it is at a flattering place.
Sometimes, it helps to have a starting point. If you already own a pair of shorts that you love, or a pair that you loathe, try them on and try to determine why they flatter — or don’t. Measure the inseam, and make note of the details. This will inform your future shorts-buying decisions.
