As much a part of summer as sand shifting under your toes and that first sip of an Aperol spritz, denim shorts are a wardrobe classic. This year, we’re loving the boyfriend style, with a relaxed, mid-thigh fit (the era of visible bum cheek is definitely over) and high-rise shape, great for accentuating your waist. Wear with a bright slogan T-shirt, white trainers and a cross-body bag for casual summer days – a hoodie is your go-to layer if it gets cold.
On truly scorching summer days, all you need is a towel, a swimsuit and a beach – plus a pair of denim shorts to sling on when you have to go in search of a Calippo. If you prefer to avoid feeling too exposed while you saunter about in swimwear, choose from our range of tummy-controlling options and built-in cups. For extra chic points, add an open oversized white shirt as a cover-up.
Denim shorts might be the epitome of casual dressing, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be elevated easily with the right top. Tuck in a pretty floral blouse et voilà – you have an outfit ready to take you to dinner or the bar. Gold jewellery, block-heeled sandals and a cute bag will also smarten up your act.
