The warm weather is upon us and rising temperatures call for clothing that will get us through the scorching heat. Women’s shorts are naturally one of our go-tos during the hottest months of the year
While in the past they were practically only worn for everyday outfits or to the beach or the pool, nowadays women’s shorts can be seen in all kinds of ensembles, even in office attire
. What really matters is choosing the right style for each situation.
You can follow as many trends as you want, but let’s take a look at some of the looks that always feature shorts as the key piece.
Leggings and cycling shorts
are this season’s biggest trends, taking over street style in your city, on social media and in fashion magazines. Following their success in the ‘80s and ‘90s, when it was common to see women’s mid-thigh shorts, they’re making a strong comeback both on the catwalk and in street fashion. If you want the low-down on how to wear them
, we recommend you pair them with an oversized top piece to balance out your outfit. If you’re headed to the office
, opt for a fitted top and a blazer; for an informal touch, throw on a basic T-shirt and a blazer.
More recently, cargo shorts have also taken the fashion world by storm
. The iconic functional and utilitarian design is here, crammed with pockets to make life a little easier. A staple piece in military-inspired looks, cargo shorts will look fab when teamed with a pair of black lace-up boots
and a top in earth tones. Pop on a bomber jacket, and there you have the perfect ensemble. Comfy and stylish, what more could you ask for?Women’s tailored shorts are another one of our favourite options
. Their loose waist-high fit make them super comfy and flattering. Within this group, there’s a wide range of different designs to suit your style. Always try to pair your shorts with a crop top or a T-shirt or blouse
that you can tuck in at the waist.
Last but not least, let’s not forget denim shorts
. Just like any denim item, they’re so practical and versatile that you can wear them on just about any occasion and they’ll suit any style you’re after. Depending on how you pair them, you can create everyday looks or combos fit for the weekend.
Now that you know women’s shorts offer endless possibilities, it’s time you checked them all out!
