The only other thing that's breaking records besides The Lion King's 2019 movie adaptation, is the weather. And holy crap, has it been one hot summer. Yeah, we might not be experiencing the intense temperatures that the European countries have been plagued with, but you can't deny that the sun is beating down on us hard in Singapore. Climate change is no fake news, folks.
Unfortunately, there's absolutely nothing we can do that would immediately change weather patterns. But what's possible—and a bit more fun to do too—is being smart with what we wear. It's time to trade in your chinos, denim jeans, and sweatpants for shorts.
We know, it sounds rather obvious. And you might retort that it's something you're already doing on the daily. Fair enough. But there's a difference between wearing shorts for comfort, and wearing shorts for comfort stylishly.
As an item of clothing, shorts have been very much relegated as something casual, and by default, tend to be part of a more dressed-down culture. Yet, it's how a pair of shorts is styled into a look that determines the vibe. Even with a simple T-shirt and shorts combination, it can spell for a stylishly winning look if proportions come into play, or prints are introduced. But don't just take our word for it. Check out in the gallery above the many different ways and combinations that the fashionable street style set during fashion week have adopted shorts into their looks.
Whether it's creating a seamless, coordinated look with a matching top or outerwear, or simply keeping things neutral with a tonal approach, this ensemble of picture-worthy outfits are a testament to how being on this side of the equator is not necessarily the short end of the stick.
