Shorts are an essential summer staple, from three quarter lengths, to daisy dukes, short shorts, hotpants, skorts and culottes there is something to suit everyone. Shorts are the ultimate way to dress your pins this summer whilst keeping your underwear and modesty intact. These beautiful pleated stone chino shorts caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to try them on.
Here I am wearing a UK10 and love the girly pleated detail to the front, the deep side pockets, zip fastening, turned up cuffs and double floral decor silver buttons add a beautiful tailored girly touch. Made from 100% cotton they are incredibly comfortable and easy to wear, with two fake pockets breaking up the back. The wide stitched waistband brings depth and detail to the shorts, without making them too busy or fussy. They are simple, elegant and classical in cut, colour and style and I have teamed mine with a plain white vest, messy hair and natural makeup for a smart-casual daywear look. You could easily dress this up for the evening by wearing your hair in a messy bun, adding a pair of nude heels, a few statement bangles and a simple gold necklace. Earthy neutral tones work beautifully with these shorts, and bright bold summer prints and patterns would really bring this outfit alive. Whether you are looking to make a fashion statement, rock some statement jewellery or bring a twist of summer elegance to your day, at £5.00 from Atmosphere you really can’t go wrong with these beauties.
