We always know that Summer's on the way when the denim shorts arrive in our New In section, and this year is no different. This wardobe staple has been an essential for our style for so many summers, whether the summer days have been sent sunning ourselves in a foreign country or strolling along local beaches during a heatwave. And one reason we love them is that they've always been super easy to style, there's a lot to be said for a pair of cutoffs, a relaxed fit t-shirt and sandals to the ultimate relaxed 'fit! However, this year amongst all of our usual distressed denim and brightly coloured shorts, we're spotting a new trend. Enter: Mid Length Shorts! This above the knee style has been dominating our instagram feeds recently and has left us with one question: How do you style them? Because we have a feeling that our old sunscreen stained t-shirts won't cut it!
If you're looking to add a dressier feel to your summer wardrobe, longer shorts are the perfect way of doing this. Simply pairing with a bodysuit or a fitted top will give your outfit a streamlined feel and will avoid seeming too relaxed or casual!
A button down is our essential when it comes to layering over the summer, as it allows for that little bit of extra coverage while still being more lightweight and comfortable than a cardigan! Pairing your shorts with a button down tied at the waist will draw the eye to your waistline as well as add a pop of colour to your outfits!
One thing we love about these shorts is that you can pair them with an oversized sweatshirt easier than our usual denim hotpants. The length and fit of these shorts are similar to our beloved cycle shorts, meaning that the sweatshirt will fall above the hemline of the shorts rather than covering it, while the denim material adds a dressier feel to one of our favourite styles!
