They are chic, feminine, and easy to play around with. Plus, they scream summer!

Whilst some of us might not embrace the summer rain that the warm weather brings, floral shorts are a definite benefit to this hot season.

Often worn with big and colourful rimmed glasses back in the swinging ‘60s, the flower power of these shorts has evolved, over the years, from being a zany fashion piece, to being a summer must-have.

Whenever I see the likes of Rihanna, Rachel Bilson or Kate Moss donning them, I can’t help but fall in love. And I know for a fact that one pair will never be enough.

Rock them!

Our summers are filled with music festivals and concerts, and to complement the masculinity of my Hunter wellies, I feel floral shorts give me just the right about of girly softness. Worn with a pair of simple flats, be they pumps or sandals, they make any woman look stylish without trying too hard.

For women looking to elongate their legs floral shorts with wedges or high heeled sandals is the way to go. Wear your heels with confidence though – this is definitely not a look for the faint-hearted.

Mix and match florals. Wear your shorts with a form-fitting top. Mix textures – crochet tops in white or beige go beautifully with the right pair of floral shorts – be adventurous!

Because the shorts make a statement of their own, minimalism is key when it comes to accessories. A fedora adds a masculine and edgy look. Add a handful of chunky bracelets to dress the look up.
