On the Street: Micro-shorts

Summer means shorts. And this year, it’s all about the micro-short in an array of different fabrics, prints and embellishments.

They’re the perfect wardrobe item to add a little zing to your outfit. High-waisted or low rise, you can keep them casual by pairing them with a light shirt or cami, but also dress them up for night-time glamour with the addition of a chic blazer and heels.

But how are our style icons making the most of the trend? See how my favourite stars wear  the look:

Rosie Huntington Whiteley makes the most of her toned Victoria’s Secret pins by donning these embellished cut-off Daisy Dukes. She matches the vibrant print by keeping it simple on top with a classic white shirt for a cool summer festival look.

Olivia Palermo shows that even taking her dog for a walk need not be an unglamorous affair. She nails two great shorts styles in one, opting for a pair of smarter running-shorts in high-octane leather.

Finally, Miranda Kerr makes a perfect casual summer statement in denim cutoffs, paired with a gorgeous print tee and shades.

The high-street offers some amazing options for you to recreate these celebrity looks. Take a look at some of my favourites below:
