Shorts are top of our wish list right now. With the change of season comes that changeable weather which can see you a bit chilly when you leave the house, then boiling the second you start walking or get onto public transport. The answer? A pair of shorts.
They're the most versatile of pieces, for work or at the weekend. If you've allowed your leg preening to slip during the winter months (so, pretty much everyone), go for a pair of culottes. Or, if you feel ready for the big reveal? Go for a pair of tailored city shorts or even an over-the-knee style.
The best thing about shorts is their versatility. Team them with a collared white shirt for a smart office look, or dress them down with a t-shirt or Breton-striped top. Shoes? As with anything, a heeled sandal or pump will amp up the look for evenings, but we're liking ours with a pair of classic flats.
