The annual heat wave makes us want to grab more cute pairs of shorts to wear. And yes, you can look leggy without seeming sloppy by picking the right styles. We pick out the best types of shorts to be found online right now; so shop away!
1. THE SHORT SUIT
This coordinated, or matched set is a smart way to wear shorts to work on casual Fridays, if your office dress code does allow for shorter styles. Throw on a blazer and you’re ready to go.
Cotton blend co-ords, $114.59 from Cool-Find K-Style
Linen blazer, $132.90 and Linen shorts, $69.81, both from Style Nanda
2. THE OFFICE SHORTS
Pick a more sensible bermuda-style length, so that you’ll actually wear these to places other than the beach.
Karen Walker linen and cotton blend shorts, $480 from She Shops The Online Store
3. THE TAILORED SHORTS
A well-fitting pair of shorts makes all the difference. Details like pleating and well-placed pockets add fun touches to these pieces; these styles are more flattering on women with a boyish figures too.
Daydream Nation polyester shorts, $317 from She Shops The Online Store
4. THE PRINTED SHORTS
Instead of florals or paisley, think prints that you’d actually wear on your regular pants so that these will look like they’re actually meant to be worn out. Leave the more pyjamas-style prints where they belong — in the bedroom.
Polyester blend shorts, $72.37 from Cool-Find K-Style
Viscose shorts, $69 from Mango
5. THE HIGH-WAISTED SHORTS
Opt for a pair of high-waisted shorts if you’re feeling a bit self-conscious about a tummy bulge.
Denim shorts, $59 and Guipure lace polyester shorts, $89 both from Mango
River Island polyester blend shorts, $74.90 from Zalora
6. THE CULOTTE SHORTS (OR SKORTS)
Some of these styles look almost skirt-like; except that you don’t actually need to wear those safety shorts underneath your mini ‘skirt’.
Al & Alicia polyester blend culotte shorts, $180 from She Shops The Online Store
Thea by Thara lace and polyester shorts, $238 from Et-i-kit
Dorothy Perkins polyester shorts, $39.90 from Zalora
