The perfect pair of denim shorts are neither too short nor too long. They sit firmly above the knee with a fit that’s just right. Put away the distressed pair, the short pair and – for the love of style – the tight pair. Our pick? This ASOS light wash denim version. Here’s how to wear it three ways:
Look 1: For a cool casual weekend
Wear with: A luxe T-shirt and cool sports trainers. The relaxed fit of the T-shirt paired with the versatility of the shoes make you effortlessly cool, while a pair of aviator sunglasses completes the look.
Look 2: For smart casual sundowners
Wear with: Even if you aren’t at Diddy’s White Party, your look can be just as elegant. Pull on a smart dress shirt, tucked into your shorts with the sleeves rolled up ever so slightly to your elbows. Then, accessorise with a svelte pair of statement loafers and a subtle leather belt.
Look 3: For a relaxed lunch
Wear with: A classic polo shirt and accessorize with neat trainers. For a bolder pop of colour, look to bead bracelets and tinted eyewear. Add simple leather accessories so as not to clutter the look.
