The breakout star of this season's tailoring trend? Shorts. We know - not necessarily the most approachable piece but where Bottega Veneta, Totême and Chloé lead, we like to follow. You may think you can’t wear shorts, but that’s just because you haven’t seen this season's iterations. For an easy starter course in how to wear tailored shorts, take Joseph's game-changing pair. Beautifully cut and precisely tailored, these are a modern alternative to the tried and trusted trouser and they're endlessly wearable. Wondering what to wear with shorts? A cashmere stepped-hem knit, belted trench and slip-on sneaker are the easy answer for a chic, hi/lo look. For more answers on what shoes to wear with shorts, opt for a knee-high boot for a new take on ‘office-appropriate’ style. As for the finishing touch, Brinker & Eliza's drop earrings will lend a touch of luxe. Put a sultry spin on it after dark, swap the knit for a racer vest, layer with a leather blazer and step into barely-there kitten heels to give your look an effortlessly sexy edge - finishing off with a generous spritz of Abel's heady Red Santal fragrance.
