Spice up your shorts


Shorts: the best article of clothing for people living in the tropics. Whether you’re a fan of cheek-baring hotpants or prefer airy culotte shorts, it’s hard to deny how useful they are in Singapore. Shorts show off your gams while keeping you cool in the equatorial heat, making them the perfect choice.

While previously relegated to the realm of casual dress, shorts these days come in all sorts of fancy new cuts and fabric, breathing life and versatility into them. These shorts can take you from chilling at home to a night out on the town. Plus, thanks to fast fashion, trendy articles of clothing have become increasingly accessible — which means that your next pair of ultra-hip shorts are just a click away.

Athleisure

Athleisure is a look that might take some getting used to, but the truth of athleisure is that it’s a way to meld fashion with function. Performancewear is comfortable, and embracing athleisure means being able to head straight to the gym after office hours without stopping to change or bringing along a little duffel bag.

However, one thing to note about it is this: you can vary the pieces based on how formal or informal your day will be. 

Casual? Throw on bike shorts and an oversized shirt.Need to look more put-together? A sporty shirt and tailored trousers can go a long way.

For a basic athleisure look that you can wear to a more casual workplace, try pairing these Kydra core shorts in versatile black with a white sport-appropriate Ztay Dry hooded tee from bossini to channel a cute, casual look that’s perfect for mall-trawling. Want to add a splash of colour? Check out these adorable pink Cole Haan trainers in Morganite! Plus, throw on this sleeveless denim waistcoat from Urban Revivo to jazz up your outfit!

Loud and Bold

Looking loud and proud in shorts has never been easier. It starts with a simple top that won’t attract much attention — like this black top with thin straps from Urban Revivo.

Having a plain, solid-coloured top means that the attention is directed towards the other elements of the outfit, such as this pair of Ava Button Shorts in Rose from Montif. These shorts come in a cut that is a little more forgiving, with more leg coverage and roomy pleats in the front for if you hit up a buffet with pals.

Complete the look with these gorgeous quilted mules from Urban Revivo, and if you’re feeling like channeling Kate Moss from the early 2000’s in her sleeveless vests, Bega’s striped green sleeveless open vest promises you dreams of sitting on a suede couch, flashing your pearly whites at a fashion photographer.

Glammed Up

It’s possible to look glamorous in shorts. In fact, you can cheat by wearing skorts instead — a delightful portmanteau coined to describe shorts with an extra flap over the front, making them look like a skirt and thereby granting the wearer the best of both worlds.

These checked print skorts from Urban Revivo are dressy enough for a night out on the town or even for dancing until daybreak in a club! Pair with this lace vest from iRoo and you’ve got yourself a chic and stylish look! Don’t forget heels to elongate your legs in the skorts, too — sky sandals from Prettyfit match the top and are sure to win onlookers over.
