From sports luxe and ripped denim to chic leather and tailored cuts, we love the versatility of the latest women's shorts.

Freshen up your transitional wardrobe with women's shorts

This season, women's shorts are all about texture, fabric and fit - patent leather, crushed velvet and colourful beading make for a striking way to finish peplum, lace and off-the shoulder going out tops. Striped details, jersey fabrics, frayed denim and drawstring waists are perfect for casual looks, especially when worn with stacked high-tops or flat ankle boots. Suede and velvet-effect women's shorts in rich autumnal shades are the perfect way to translate the look for the winter season so keep legs cosy with tights and fur-lined boots.

Update your gymwear with women's shorts

Choose a pair of tan or black shorts for women and finish with heeled loafers for a subtle vintage twist. Complement distressed leather ladies' shorts with preppy boyfriend blazers or choose a loose-fit printed design from this collection of women's shorts for a beachy take on the trend. Look for women's shorts featuring details like scalloped hems, front pleats and modest lengths for a more flattering and leg-lengthening effect. Wear your women's shorts with statement furs and sheer bell sleeves for this season's essential Victoriana look.
