Beat the Summer Heat: City Shorts

What: With the mercury hitting record highs all over, “city shorts” are slowly but surely making their presence felt on the fashion front.

What the fashion heads say:Telegraph.co.uk: ..we are not talking about thigh-grazing styles fit only for the cellulite-free: the new breed of shorts is tailored – often cut to just above the knee – and is a flattering, surprisingly sexy option, which is even suitable for work.

What I say: Still a bit iffy about the suitable-for-work part, depending on your particular location and occupation. Regardless, it’s nice to have a new alternative for causal business dress or a dressy night out. If you’re so inclined to give the trend a go, remember that white is still a super-hot option for summer. Budget note: the Intuitions city shorts shown above cost less than $30 at the department store Dillard’s.
