It’s been a long time since we had to suit up and do the long commute to work, but somehow we’ve ended up missing it. Maybe not the part where we have our faces pressed up against a strangers back on the tube (never again, we hope), but wearing cute suits is a long, distant memory we can’t wait to rediscover.
We’re not talking about black fitted trousers and white shirts with no personality. This summer we’re longing for colourful and chic bermuda short suits, Clueless-style sets and printed co-ords – and the high street has delivered.
Offering an easy way to ease us back into getting our pasty legs out this summer, Zara, Arket, H&M and & Other Stories are just some of the high street names that have tackled the trend in 2021.
If you’re struggling to imagine ditching your sweatpants, we hear you. Thank God then that these styles offer comfort and style in bucketloads. Loose-fitting bermuda shorts are replacing cycling shorts this summer, while for those brave enough, 90s-style micro minis are one of this year’s biggest trends.
