5 denim shorts you can proudly sashay in this summer

Updated: Jun 24, 2020

The heat (wave) is officially on and it's time to bare our legs just as if we were on holiday. There's nothing more suited to this task than a pair of 'denim shorts'.

With the sun blazing down on us, there is no better excuse than to get our legs out of our superbly technical, sweat wicking, figure hugging leggings. It may not be easy, they have been our trusty comfortable friend, a go-to staple all through lockdown.

However, now that restrictions are being lifted and the weather is playing ball, we are obliged to follow suite in appropriate summer attire.

Most of us will be hunkered down in the city, with a slim chance of jetting off to some beautiful Mediterranean beach this summer. But, we still have our bikes and our parks and curb-side pubbing with take-away Pimm's in plastic cups.

But, most importantly we have our denim shorts! Cut-off ones, ripped ones, high waisted ones, showing a bit of cheeky bottom ones. And, if you don't already have the perfect pair to replace your trusted leggings then here are a couple of suggestions.

Super short in the front but with enough coverage behind, these high-waisted shorts will work perfectly in the sweltering heat of the city.

Pair them with a pair of cowboy boots for a laid back western vibe or some comfy espadrille wedges and crank up the Ibiza tunes.

G-Star are true champions of sustainable denim, their quality, craftsmanship and design all add-up.

High waisted with a relaxed fit around the leg, they'll look great with a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of Adidas® Originals.

Not all shorts need to be casual! In fact for that very rare occasion that you can socially visit your friends garden for a glass of rosé, these smart shorts will make quite the entrance.

Slim fit and crafted from two contrasting in colour, vintage jeans, these shorts will look stunning with a black silk floaty camisole, a pair of strappy black sandals and a statement belt.

If anything, the resent lockdown has proven that we can be very resourceful. Finding skills we never knew we had. We all have the ability to be creative inside us.

Taking some scissors to a 'delegated for the charity shop' pair of jeans and turning them into your "this season must-haves" is as easy as one, two, YouTube tutorials.

Go on get inspired!



Ps: let's keep it ethical and sustainable or better yet get creative. I've many a time taken a pair of scissors to an old pair of jeans with fabulous results. Saved myself some money and done my bit for the environment to. If you need any ideas or advice head on over to my Facebook and Instagram pages, send me an email or comment bellow.
