Fashion Fix: Denim shorts

07 January 2011

January is a funny month. The winter sales are drawing to a close, belts are tightened after the expenditure and debauchery of December and of course we are all sick to death of the dreary weather and are desperately looking to the SS11 catwalks for inspiration. And whilst we wait for stores to receive their first spring deliveries - transitional dressing is where it’s at. Rihanna and Nicole Richie were both spotted out yesterday in LA wearing, wait for it, denim shorts. So if you put your own pair to the back of the wardrobe last autumn there really is no better time to be fishing them out and giving them a new lease of life. But shorts…in winter!? We hear you squeal. Do as these ladies do and layer them with jersey tees and shearling jackets. Keep the overall palette a sleek and simple but why not add a hint of red a la Nicole or Rihanna’s hair for that matter. Check out our six ways to get their look below…
