Finding The Perfect Denim Short With Topshop

Denim shorts are a difficult one, with so many different shapes and styles it can be tricky to even know where to look. In the past I have always stuck to wearing more expensive pairs because I thought they would fit better.

However recently I popped into Topshop Personal Shop for an appointment as part of my #TopshopGirl ambassadorship and was so pleasantly surprised with the styles on offer. There were a number of different styles left on the rail and if i’m honest I just picked them up to put on with this denim jacket, not intending for it to be the outfit that I choose, but I was so shocked how much I loved the shape and fit and how flattering they were for the price! I came out of the dressing room and looked in the long mirror and knew straight away that they were coming home with me. I mean, even just the way they kick out at the back, it gives the nicest shape, doesn’t it? I suppose it’s safe to say I have found my new favourite style of summer short?

Then this got me thinking that why wouldn’t they have great fit shorts, I already loved and wear Topshop denims consistently and same with my Topshop skirts! So, I tried on another few pairs of the different styles and again I loved them all.

I’ve pulled together my favourites below so you can see just how cute they are, since it’s pretty much summer now and what is a summer wardrobe without the perfect pair …

Everyone will be different when it comes to finding their perfect fit, but for me, if a short is going to be short (like the ones i’m wearing above “The Kiri Shorts”) then I prefer it to be high waisted and if my shorts are low waisted, I want them to be slightly longer & slouchier so I don’t look out of proportion.  This pair i’m wearing are of course the pair I fell in love with, the perfect waist to match the length making them so flattering on my legs and bum, especially with the fraying.

They really do have all bases covered in terms of style and fit. They have Mom shorts, ripped loose denim shorts, longer shorts and good old high rise, all ranging between £26-£32. They also come in blue denim, bleach denim, white and black, so naturally I have already bought the blue denim pair of these because is there anything better than finding a pair of shorts you love and fit perfectly for £28?

Of course I wasn’t going to sign off without mentioning this jacket, because seriously isn’t it insane! I’m loving the slight 80s vibe from this look and that is all thanks to this cropped denim. The arms puff out in the most perfect way and that raw hem – just perfect! Another hero summer piece! I am sure you will agree if you have been following my instagram and seen all the insane pieces from Topshop like the striped Blazer, the fringed white blouse and more recently the Polka dot open back dress, that Topshop have been killing it this season. So many hero pieces that I have fallen in love with and these shorts are no exception!

What’s your favourite type of summer short and have you tried any of the Topshop Styles? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Thanks for reading as always and have a wonderful new week!
