City Shorts


With summer well and truly under way, we’re prepping for bare-leg weather by embracing the always chic city shorts look. These tailored staples are the perfect addition to your new season wardrobe. Easy to wear and oh-so-versatile, they can be paired with simple shirts and jackets for a polished look, which works just as well for the office as for off-duty styling.

With myriad options – from floral prints and monochrome stripes to bright pastels and on-trend suede  – there are high street and high-end buys aplenty. 
Topping our wish lists are Cos’s smart, pleated version, and Zara’s luxe leather joggers, but we’ll be investing in as many of these statement separates as possible to take the stress out of work dressing in the heat this summer.
