Denim shorts have long been a summer hero, and their enduring appeal means they will forever be a smart investment. However, the trick to wearing them successfully lies in ensuring they look sophisticated rather than scruffy. Picking polished styles and pairing them with summer staples will strike exactly the right chord. Here’s how.
A high waist never fails to flatter and gives your look a vintage feel. Keep it the right side of retro with a contemporary colour-block one-piece and monochrome accessories.
One of the most flattering cuts is an A-line shape with belted waist. Accentuate the silhouette by tucking in a ruffled blouse, adding feminine flair with espadrilles and a hair bow.
Button-front sailor shorts are a nod to a timeless nautical mood. Give the look a chic French twist with a striped top, ballet flats and woven tote.
