Step into spring with your very own pair of sweet, stylish and suitable-for-every-occasion shorts! This cute and casual option is perfect for popping to the market, going out to dinner and everything in between, and the paperbag waist detail gives a bit of visual interest and is easily adjustable for maximum comfort on those days when one cupcake just isn’t enough.

We made ours in a light, versatile blue linen from The Fabric Store, but they would also look great featuring an eye-catching pattern or in a vibrant block colour. Wear with shirts, casual tops, sandals or flats and sport these super shorts all over the place!
