Three ways to wear shorts

The stylish solution to rising temperatures, from work to weekend


Beach, please

Shorts and sandals are a tried-and-tested combination for seaside excursions and these airy, linen-rich shorts with a drawstring waist are the ultimate fuss-free style. Team with a broderie anglaise sleeveless top and punchy accessories for an effortless look that will take you from Margate to Mallorca in style.

Hot in the city

Summer means al fresco lunch dates, rooftop cocktails and long, lazy days in the park – and shorts are ideal for every sunny outing in your diary. A lightweight trench coat has you covered for unexpected showers (it’s Britain after all) and will keep you warm after dark, while bright yellow sandals tap into the key colour trend of the season.

Work it out

We’d all love to hit the “out of office” button for the whole of June and July (OK, and August), but sadly work calls, even during peak holiday season (oh, the injustice!). Keep your cool with shorts for the office – yes, really – by smartening up with a tailored Prince of Wales checked jacket and ballet pumps. It’s the chicest way to tackle the commute, we promise.
