I literally live in shorts... I adore them! I find them a more feminine version of pants and an edgier alternative for a skirt. However, I do love a good skirt... So luckily for me there is a great range of skirts and shorts on offer this AW!
My general rule of thumb regarding skirts and shorts is; find a good print or texture and pair it with a simple tee, blouse or sweater. And on really cold days both shorts and skirts look fab with a pair of opaque tights.
A quick FYI, I am literally drooling like a puppy for the Shakuhachi look above!
