Short Stories

A man-style shirt and heels gives shorts a rather relaxed but grown-up appeal.

So unless you’ve been living under a rock this past winter, all signs are pointing toward shorts being a must-wear trend this Spring and Summer.  This is great news for me because I love to wear shorts.  I’m a little afraid to admit this, but I tend to get a little over attached to my shorts – so much so that in the past I have had to force myself to throw the worn-out ones away because they are so badly beyond repair!  By then they are covered in holes, the seams have come apart and every time I wash them I am afraid they won’t survive the ordeal.    

Summer dressing perfection in denim or leather.
The most popular trends in shorts are the denim cut-off and tailored, especially in leather.

And if your legs have been covered up all winter then now is the time to start preparing them for the great unveiling of spring and summer!  Shaving, waxing, or whatever is your hair removal method of choice should be first on your list because I know that there are plenty of you out there that use the months of covering up as an excuse to omit this little task – myself included.

Leather shorts are not all about dressing up either, Alexa Chung pairs her leather here with chambray and little ballet flats.

Exfoliation and rough skin removal are next, so are pedicures and self-tan.  Of course we all know how good tanned legs look in shorts, but as I’ve said before you’ll be amazed at how gorgeous your lily white legs can look in the right shorts.  It’s all about smooth skin with lashings of moisturiser – it’s worth it I promise you!

Shorts are such a versatile addition to your wardrobe because there are so many options when dressing in them.  Try a tailored shirt or jacket, (or steal one from your boyfriend or hubby).

Or mix your shorts with tailored separates like a jacket, a waistcoat or vest with tights and gorgeous heels for evening.

During the day, pair wedges, espadrilles or chunky heels and a light-weight blouse with your shorts.

For my money the hero of my wardrobe this summer is definitely going to be the denim cut-off.  So why don’t you have a look in your wardrobe and give new life to an old forgotten pair of jeans today – you won’t regret it!
