Take a short cut to fashion forward tailoring with this season’s alternative to the mini skirt for showing a bit of leg, but rest assured, there are plenty of longer styles on the high street to tempt you.

Wear longer tailored shorts with a blazer and simple shell top as a suit look for summer in the city, or be inspired by Saint Laurent and update your evening style with leather or khaki belted shorts paired with a voluminous blouse and barely-there sandals.

If you’re shopping online search for ‘bermuda’ styles at your high street favourites, they will be longer in length and offer a more relaxed shape; the wider fit on the legs will make your pins appear slimmer. Look for bold prints and bright tones for an instant injection of tropicana into your wardrobe.

Style Tip: We all know linen is a great option for summer thanks to its coolness but the crease factor is always an issue and for smarter occasions, a crumpled short is not a good look. Get the best of both worlds by looking for a pair in a linen blend; the other fibres will help keep your shorts sharp while the linen keeps you cool.
