The Shorts Report: the best of Summer Shorts

As I mentioned before, shorts are a major must this summer! The hottest shapes were introduced by Alexander Wang in his RTW Spring/Summer collection. The High Street caught up and has a lot to offer when it comes to fab shorts of all shapes and sizes.

Tailored Shorts: Karen Millen, Oasis
Good old fashioned tailored shorts are not going anywhere. You can wear these classic shorts with pretty much anything. I'd highly recommend to go for D&G cowgirl look and pair your tailored shorts with a denim shirt.

Silk Shorts: Habitual, D&G, Miu Miu
Silk shorts can be worn day and night. Nothing screams Saint Tropez like a pair of luxurious silk shorts...c'est tres chic :).


Leather Shorts: Alexander Wang, Topshop, Rika
Leather shorts may sound like a bold choice, but think like Olivia Palermo and pair your leather shorts with voluminous silk blouse - total knockout outfit guaranteed.

Draped/Harem Shorts: Helmut Lang, Whistles, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Alexander Wang
My favorite shape of shorts this season has got to be draped or harem shorts. I found the best selection of harem shorts at Whistles.co.uk. Helmut Lang pieces at Farfetch.com are pretty impressive as well.

Denim Shorts: Erin Wasson X RVCA, Topshop, Oasis (knee lenght), Marc by Marc Jacobs, Siwy
And now, time for some DYI: make your own denim shorts that is. Sure we can all go spend our money on another pair of denim shorts. But why do that when you can create a pair from your unwanted jeans. You could either go for knee length, high-waisted preppy style, or hot pants - whatever rocks your boat :).
