As the temperatures start to soar and thoughts turn to holidays in the sun, it's time to think about striding out in your perfect women's shorts.
Finding the right pair of shorts to show off your legs in need not be difficult with so many different styles in varying lengths, designs, colours and materials. Some women may like to feel confident in hot pants, others are more comfortable stepping out in casual combat shorts, while an on-trend high-waisted denim pair would be perfect for a high-fashion look
Jersey hot pants are a comfortable yet fashionable choice for the beach. An extra short pair can be found in a variety of bright and practical colours, with an elasticated waistband, drawstring fastening and two pockets at the front.
A pair of lightweight, plain, stretch cotton shorts are perfect for everyday wear. Cotton shorts can be found in a range different colours, with two handy pockets and an attractive belt. Linen shorts are a good choice for keeping cool. Casual-style pairs are available in colours including purple, black, coral and blue.
Skirt-style shorts are a fun way to show off a pair of tanned legs. Among those you can add to your summer wardrobe are layered-ruffle frill styles in red, black, white and yellow or high-waisted wrap skirts in white, black or tan.
Floral Printed Shorts
For the woman who prefers a floral print, there are pretty high-waisted flared shorts with a tie fastening in apricot or black. Surf-style shorts in flowery prints in black, sky blue, pink, turquoise, or red and black show off your inner surfer whilst high rise hot pants make a strong statement, with tassel detailing available in a floral print, or in a spotty or diamond design.
Denim shorts are a fashionable choice and there are many variations. A pair of ripped high-waisted stonewash denim shorts are perfect for the trendsetter, while stretchy roll up boyfriend shorts promise to be comfortable as well as chic.
