Living in what can only be described as an odd urban environment of nans and suspicious teens, I've had to hibernate a few of my sparking colour tops that would attract 'moth to a flame' looks. But luckily this has only aided and built a subtle subway underground route to achieving a similar sort of impact. I've put a stamp of approval on postman style shorts that have a playful postage to their style delivery, but also boast a thick and sharp edge to them that gives some business class. Paired with a winter comfort knit and a polo top that clings in a conservative way, shorts can suddenly become something of the swarv new decor, even in the evening.
The likes of Prada have recently refurbished the short persona into a long trail of occasion possibilities. Almost serving as masculine skirts, the unconvenional length and electric blue colours are aesthetically tame and appropriate when teamed with muted tops that are both flowing and fitted at the same time. Clinical comes to mind; a phrase I'm definately going to try and abide by as the seasons go by.
