Trends on Tuesdays Shorts

shorts

Ok so it’s sunny outside for once, so no better Tuesday than today to talk about shorts and how to wear them. You might have read a piece I wrote about summer style in Notion Magazine last year, and how I am not a fan of short-shorts (basically I saw too much bum on show last summer that I decided I was to hate them forever). But this season is slightly different. Styles have changed, are longer, and more classic. With a longer length comes multiple styling options for dressy and casual wear so fear not, I have some solutions for you!

Oh my shorts!

Let’s start with the print (1) from Dorothy Perkins which comes with a matching top. This outfit can be worn separately too so it makes for a good summer wardrobe investment. Plus the shorts are not too short, and have a nice dressy feel to them for a perfect outfit for hot summer evenings. Print is a great statement and even with the plainest of tops they do all the work for you (2). Longer styles are the most versatile I think, and River Island know how to do this (3). You can style these with a crop top or string vest and some strappy sandals to make them more dressy. There is no doubt the white is the shade of the season (5&6) which can work with any bright colour. But if you like something more sporty, opt for a sportswear brand like Adidas at Topshop for you running gear (4).
