Denim shorts are a style staple whatever the season. Worn with tights now and bare legs later they’re the go-with-everything item that every girl needs in her wardrobe – but in keeping with the hot Seventies style that’s sweeping spring, a high waisted pair is the only way to wear them now.
This vintage-look pair from Topshop are super flattering with their slightly-flared leg and will see you through from now until spring in suitable style. But if you’re not sure how to work them with sass, see below for our pick of must-have pieces that will make the most of your leg-barers.
The new-season shirt is a spring must-have, and it’s worth investing in one that won’t date. Work the preppy look by teaming your shorts with this pretty peach Chloe shirt – its sumptuous silk is the ultimate in understated luxe. Wear it buttoned up to the collar for a look that Alexa Chung would be proud of – it’s perfect for balancing bare legs in spring.
If clogs are a little too clumpy then French Connection’s strappy tan pair are a great alternative. A fabulous hybrid of clogs and sandals (slogs perhaps?), they’re more dainty in design with just a subtle of Hasbeen-style studs. Plus, the straps and platform add much-needed support so you can show off your pedicure without sacrificing practicality.
Every fashionista knows that accessories can make or break an outfit. Go all out on the finishing touches with Topshop’s nude floppy hat – the wide brim features flirty heart cut-outs whilst the camel shade compliments the soft tones of this effortlessly luxe look.
