Now that we’ve hit August we’re well and truly lusting after the last rays of the sunshine, but don’t let the autumn drop in shop floors get you down – there’s still time to sport your summer staples yet.

We love 3.1 Phillip Lim’s modern interpretation of the classic denim short, and with their loose cut and a relaxed drawstring waist, this stonewashed pair have been given a touch of luxe sportswear to bring them up to date.

Ideal for seeing out the last days of summer and those off-the-cuff holidays, wear them with a simple vest and a pair of chunky wedges, and add a camel-coloured jacket for the evenings – or, if you’re a sucker for a trend, try tucking in a light-wash denim shirt.
