A summer essential, shorts come in many styles ranging from more formal, tailored Bermudas to short modern takes by Australian brand Ellery.

Shorts are as much a certainty in spring and summer as death and taxes are in life. But that's not to say that you can simply recycle last spring's shorts for this season. Fashion wouldn't be a business if designers and labels didn't ignite a desire to run to the nearest store to buy 'the new shorts' - even if you already have piles of similar looking items in your closet.

Short cuts

Shorts are best worn chic and not sloppy. Paired with jackets and button-up shirts, they provide a more refined take on casual wear. Inspired by the working man, Prada's offering has a loose fit and hits just above the knee while Etro went short, tight and tailored. In a modern mix, Yves Saint Laurent featured cropped shorts with a high waist.
