Shorts are a summer staple, but this year the designers have given the daisy dukes and peek-a-boo shorts a rest and opted for a modest length instead. From cycling and stretch to broad satin shorts; Chanel, Stella McCartney and, Prada have all jumped on this wagon.
To complete this look pair the shorts with a fitted blazer and tick of another trend prevailing this season.

The eco-friendly movement is in more swing than ever before. Recycling and reducing plastic waste is not the only way you can improve the environment. A better way is to invest in natural materials; they are breathable which makes them ideal for summer. That combined with ethical farming techniques and recycled fabric result in sustainable fashion. Many local Hong Kong designers like Kay Li and Rumi X have been making an impact, its time you did too!
So darlings, what are you waiting for? Head on out and refresh your summer wardrobe!
