Opt for a more casual look with a khaki jacket and neutral vest – just add a pair of retro trainers to give the outfit a cool finish.
Dress the shorts up for the evening with a white heeled boot, adding a boxy blazer to balance out any skin on show.
Not quite ready to bare your legs yet? Wear these shorts layered over a pair of sheer black tights, before giving the look a more feminine feel with a flat pump and a pretty blouse.
