Let’s get straight to the cut. Despite an impending winter season, with the warmer weather sticking around for a little while longer, shorts are still an acceptable choice when it comes to weekend attire. In new seasons, most recently Spring/Summer 2019, the likes of Prada and Fendi have shortened the hemlines for a ’70s interpretation. The only question left is which length?

“How short is too short?? Great legs and tanned skin get my vote otherwise, choose a length the fits your body height,” advises ICON Fashion Director, Kim Payne.

The options are endless when it comes to the revived look. Opt for denim cut-offs which lend a rock ‘n roll approach, baggy 3/4 style for a ’90s basketball look or in this case, clean-cut tailoring for a preppy vibe. Though casual, the tailored short can be dressed up with a basic polo and blazer for a balmy Sunday session.

All that is left to do is choose your length. Shop the look below.
