Okay so over the years I may have developed a sort of OBSESSION  with shorts and as spring is almost here I thought I should show you some of my current favourites that will look great this year!

 A basic pair of high waisted shorts are an essential piece in your wardrobe no matter what season it is as they look great with bare legs in the summer or on top of tights/ leggings in the colder months. Because their so versatile its worth investing in a good pair that will last you yonks. The pair above are from Topshop, costing about £28 pounds but there worth it as they fit great and cover everything that need to be covered ;D half your bum hanging out is never a good look...
Alternatively, if your styles more vintage, then check out the ASOS marketplace, as they have tuns of pairs of vintage Levi shorts in all different colours and styles starting at £16!
I'm really into the dip-dye or tye-die look that been around for a while, it can make a really basic pair of shorts look amazing, and really unique! I've seen so many different colours of this on blogs and in shops, which just makes me love the look even more. This pair are again from Topshop ( wish really does have a massive selection of shorts right now) for £32. If your feeling a bit daring, then you might want to try a bit of DIY dipping? This makes sure your shorts are completely unique, and you can tailor the shape, pattern and colour to be exactly as you want! This video is great, and has inspired me to try it out with an old pair of white skinnies! Hopefully it turns out as planned 

Everyone knows pastels are great in summer, and I love mint green because it seems to look flattering on all skin colours! These shorts from new look are around £15-£16 and are a decent length. They also come in loads of other colours but these by far for me were the best hahah! I have seen a similar pair in primark for £5, which is great because its not worth spending too much money on simple clothes that you can only wear in 1 season. Barry M also make a mint green nail varnish, if you like your clothes to match your nails! This pastel shade is also ideal if your not up for strutting about in bold and stand-out colours.

Finally, I have fallen in love with these blue paisley shorts from Lavish Alice, and online store that sells some great pieces for a much cheaper price than the high street! These are £20, and the perfect pair of 'dressy' shorts that can be worn at night, or just too add a bit of sophistication to any summer outfit. I have seen them on the website in red which also looked gorgeous.

Hope this helped if you are struggling deciding what shorts are worth getting this summer and spring! watch out for more fashion posts soooooon! :)
