I have developed a massive crush on shorts, not only do they elongate the leg and make you look impossibly tall, but they also keep you covered with your modesty faultlessly intact and they’re incredibly comfortable to wear. From three quarter length, cropped, high waisted or cheek-skimming, just like jeans there is a shape and fit to suit everyone.
Here I am wearing the grey woven shorts in a size M which is a UK8-10 and they are made of 97% cotton and 3% elastane, which means that they’re comfortable and flexible to wear and don’t cut into the stomach or leg when you walk and sit. I love the tailored fit of these shorts as they are certainly a smart piece. There is a charcoal zip up back with a hook and eye fastening, side pleats and two front faux zipper pockets. The shorts have a gorgeous reflective surface, catching the light and standing crisp and formal.
I love how these fit like a second skin, and they’re cut just beautifully without being clingy or making my legs look like shrink-wrapped sausages. Here I have teamed it with a simple white vest, natural hair and minimal makeup but imagine these with a bold statement necklace, a red patent clutch or a striped boyfriend jacket. I’m in heaven! For just £11.50 Forever21 have made my summer so smart!
