The Best Summer Shorts To Wear While Soaking Up The Sunshine

Shorts are back and better than ever.

Shorts are the only way to go this summer. Whether it’s sweltering hot or just a little warm, they’re an easy way to keep cool.

They’re having a bit of a resurgence, with plenty sartorial styles to shop from, such as stripes, earth tones or colourful patterns.

To help you update your summer wardrobe with some hot weather-worthy pieces, we’ve curated a selection of the best shorts to buy now.

Sun’s out, get the pastels out. Either team it with the matching jacket, or keep it simple with a tucked in white t-shirt and sandals.

Dip your toes into candy-land with this pair wit stand-out yellow stripes. A round-handled bag will make the perfect companion.

We’re going dotty for this pair. While you will need to be careful with the condiments when at the BBQ to keep them pristine, they’re an easy pair to accessorise. We’re thinking black espadrille wedges and a statement pair of earrings.

We love the broderie anglaise trend this summer, so much so, we compiled a entire list of pieces. This vibrant red number is an easy way to incorporate colour and lace into your summer wardrobe. Style with a straw bag and bardot-style top.

Gingham isn’t just for school summer dress, as these shorts prove. Dress these up with heeled mules and a pearl hair slide.

We love a palm print here at HuffPost, whether it’s on cushions or a clutch bag. This soft pair of shorts are great for a beach coverup or a spot of exploring on holiday. Layer up the gold jewellery with it and earn some serious style points.

Whether you’re island hopping or have a long haul flight ahead for your hols, this pair is perfect for travel. Lightweight, with an adjustable tie waist, they’re comfortable and simple to style. Just add a graphic tee and flip flops.

You can’t go wrong with a bit of khaki. It goes with everything and is a nice alternative to black. Dress down with Birkenstocks or dress up with a sharp linen blazer.
