Try This: Spruced-Up Shorts

THE ALLURE OF LONGER-LENGTH SHORTS CAPTURED THE FASHION PACK AT THE RECENT SUMMER SHOWS. WE’RE FOLLOWING SUIT

Not so long ago, the notion of wearing shorts to the office felt outlandish, but there’s been a shift of late. Fashion has started reconsidering the value of well-tailored versions, as evidenced by the recent summer collections’ ultra-stylish show-goers, who embraced knee-skimming bermudas and more streamlined pedal pushers en masse.

Street-style favourite Alyssa Coscarelli (left) gave a modern edge to the look, opting for a check shorts suit and PVC top, while Parisian It-girl Monica de La Villardière (above) offered a thoroughly French take in a billowy white top, sandals and zebra accents. Moda Operandi’s Lisa Aiken (below left) also chose a cool palette, pairing white shorts with an oversized beige blazer and lots of gold jewellery.

One thing they all agreed on? The new generation of shorts look polished, professional and are surprisingly versatile – just balance them out with classic accessories (dark sunglasses essential) and a dose of effortless nonchalance.
