Summer’s close and that means festival season is almost here. June, July and August are the warmest months here in the UK, but spring is now the new summer. It’s already warming up outside and we can almost smell the BBQs cracking up. Love them or hate them, either way shorts are always the trending item when the weather gets hotter.

We’ve put together 6 sets that will inspire your next shop. Look bang-on-trend and cool all season with our top picks.

1. Printed

Prints are always in. Particularly when it comes down to the Paisley pattern. There are many shorts out there but we have our eyes on this pair. The print is eye-catching and not too busy. This makes these shorts very versatile when it comes to the top half. Team these with a lace trip, tie-up blouse and you’ll immediately look trendy.

2. Sports-Luxe

Because they’re black they go with any top, from mesh vests to ribbed T-shirts. If you want to be a little daring, add a simple pop of colour with a fresh lime crop top!

4. Pastel Stripes

Another favourite festival look is combining these sweet pastel shorts with a cutesy Peter Pan collared blouse. Get creative with the print clash trend, its hot on the fashion radar and a fun trend for summer. Plus, clashing prints always look good at festivals. Dance for hours on end in these striped bad boys. Vertical stripes make your legs look longer and extremely thinner. It’s a trick on the eye!

5. Metallic

Metallic Printed Shorts | Pastel Pink Wedges | Pastel Pink Crocheted Top

In blistering heat you don’t want your shorts to be too thick. These light weight metallic shorts are functional and stylish. They’re also a good length. Because they’re white you can mix and match as many tops as you wish and you’ll look good all season. You don’t have to have model-length legs either to work these. Add a wedge with an edge and you’re good to go.

6. Flower Power
