Utility Shorts | sheerluxe.com

For a classic yet contemporary summer look, you can’t go wrong with stylish utility shorts. Combining clean lines and cool functionality with a safari vibe, these earthy-toned staples are the perfect counterpoint to bronzed limbs.

Taking their lead from the SS15 catwalks, where the likes of Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs embraced the utility trend, high street and high-end brands are offering up the style in spades.

Working particularly well in khaki, we’ll team our pair with soft jersey, silk camis and crisp shirts for an effortless warm-weather look. For the most flattering effect, opt for a nipped-in, tie-waist style (we heart Oasis’ Cargo option) with simple gold jewellery – pure Out Of Africa-style chic.
