Trend Report: Shorts


As summer gets closer, you can start to put those heavy pants in the back of your closet! Its time to shave your legs and apply some self tanner because shorts are HOT this summer! The spring/summer catwalk is usually filled with frocks, skirts, dresses, and jumpers, but this season, shorts ruled the runway. For a night out, try black or brown leather shorts like the ones shown in the Hermes, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloe, and Alexander Wang shows. They are a great way to look cool and sexy at the same time. On the runways, these were worn with neutral colors to balance out

Yves Saint Laurent

the bold statement that leather already is.

For work, try a more tailored cut, as shown at Valentino, while on the weekend you can opt for a more casual cut like the ones seen at Etro or Dsquared. To give shorts a more casual approach just roll them at the hem, giving them a cuff and pair it with a slouchy t-shirt and ankle boots. To transition the same shorts into night-wear, exchange the booties for heels and throw on a blazer for a more polished look. Vogue UK Fashion Editor and Stylist Miranda Almond, calls shorts the perfect β€œsummer essential”. I couldn’t agree more.
