Shorts are back this spring and in many cases, the shorter the better. We’re a fan of the tailored variety here at My Fashion Life and this high-waisted pair from Topshop are an inexpensive way of combining trends for a comfortable seasonal look.

The casual cargo style has been smartened up with a contrasting bow belt and the paper bag waist going into box pleats adds to the more formal aesthetic. That being said, these would look just as good with a t-shirt and flats as they would a boyfriend blazer and platforms.

Invest in a pair of versatile summer shorts, like this pair: £32/$65 from Topshop.
