These 22 Pairs of Comfy Shorts Are Just So Easy to Style

As Brits, we know the importance of making the most of sunny days. When the sun makes an appearance, there's no time to waste on complicated outfits when a pair of comfortable, easy-to-style shorts will do the trick. Especially with a heatwave upon us, restrictive styles are passed over for loose, relaxed shorts that keep overheating at bay. 

In summer, I depend on loose-cut shorts that can be thrown on and easily styled to make the most of every ray of sunshine. Various iterations fill my closet, from linen styles that are a must for an airy feel to tailored pieces that can be worn with mules for an elevated look. And with so many colourful options, loose shorts work for minimalists and maximalists alike. 



Rely on a co-ord to take the hassle out of early morning styling and create a considered, put-together look. Black linen shorts will go with everything in your wardrobe—I'm styling mine with a bold coloured vest. Tailored paper-bag styles, however, can be worn with a linen shirt for the office, while a colourful towelling pair can be thrown over swimwear on your next trip away.
