Bermuda Shorts and Bare Legs!

Hooray the sun is finally shining though we may only be on borrowed time…

The unhappy down side to temperatures warming up is the inevitable baring of legs.

It’s catch 22, we spend our time wishing for warm weather but when it arrives we realise that poor lily-white legs are not ready for the light of day; and worse, for them to be ready for the light of day they actually have to be exposed to it…what to do?!!

Never the less the summer trend for the city short (bermuda short if you’re in America) is a great alternative to a skirt but it is still going to cause problems in the initial/ potentially only warm days at the beginning of summer.

City shorts of all fabrics/ fits/ colours and prints were strutted up and down the summer ’13 catwalks in vast quantities so I thought I’d bring you a sample selection from the shows.

Assuming that all goes according to plan on the leg preparation front, I’m feeling quite good about the re – emergence of this particular item of clothing.

So where are my high street alternatives…are there any city shorts out there!?!?

My findings…

French Connection - Infinity drape tie waist shorts, £62

Whistles- Orchid print silk short, £95

Hush - Chloe shorts, £46

Topshop - Contrast tailored short, £35

Zara- Bird print shorts, £29.99

I think it’s fair to say that the high street has well and truly jumped on this band wagon. If it’s shorts you’re after then they are in plentiful supply!

Well that’s great, so now it’s just the minor problem of transforming my legs into somebody else’s!!

Hope the sun shines for the weekend and I can get to work on a base colour!!

Have a lovely bank holiday!!

  1. Really like the Zara ones. I used to hate wearing shorts when I was a teenager, paranoid about my legs. Of course, that was when my legs were at their best – what a waste! I now love wearing shorts and the rest of the world will just have to put up with my horrible, pasty, cellulite-riddled tree-trunks!

  2. This post has come at just right time for me. I can’t believe how warm it is even up here in the North of England and while planning my next holiday in the sun I was thinking about new shorts but not too short! Some great ideas here – thanks!
