The summer may not be here just this second, but it looks like it's on the way, right? That sunshine over the weekend had me all inspired to embrace the trends we have been harping about since December! It's time, yes, the time is now!
But what we have to do is tread carefully on how we style these trends, or, if we even embrace them. One such trend is shorts.
My favourite kind of shorts are long line; the ones that just skim your knee. Swap your summer mini skirts for these, style with a blouse or collared sleeveless shirt with a pair of heels and even Victoria Beckham will be jealous of you.
What I really dislike are short shorts. You know the ones I mean? Especially of the denim variety. I cannot bring myself to like them. On anyone. Now that said, there are plenty about that are a little more wearable, like the a-line style from the current collection at Miss Selfridge. With the right styling they can be trés elegant. The floral variety are quite a nice choice for your holliers once you keep the top half nice and simple and avoid clashing prints (another trend I have decided I also dislike since 2014).
Shorts are certainly in abundance, but are they practical in our fair Irish weather? Even for the one day of sunshine we get bi-annually? Let's take it to the polls!
