Trend Alert: New Season Shorts

Trend Alert: New Season Shorts

As much as you might love your Daisy Duke cut-offs, there are some occasions when shredded denim just doesn’t cut it. This season, masculine tailoring takes centre stage in the street-style staple of Bermuda shorts. Look for a pair in beige, bright blue or even a bold print (if you dare). For work, the short suit is a chic office-appropriate ensemble – team with a basic tee and a pair of killer heels. Skorts (the classic skirt-short combo) are also making a comeback, making this summer’s essentials easy, breezy and totally comfy. And isn’t that what summer is all about?
