Above the knee is the way forward with shorts this summer. There are plenty of styles out there; from baggy 80’s options to floral surfers delights but ultimately the focus on chinos is shining through with many options available in 2014.

Just remember, no matter if the office air conditioning is broken, or a wedding is billed as formal, the general rule should always be to leave the shorts at home and opt for the trusty pair of full length chinos if an event is billed as formal.

Check out our top finds below:

3. French Connection Machine Gun Stretch Shorts

Classically cut, our Machine Gun Stretch Shorts will prove a worthy-investment for the warmer months thanks to their refined fit and casual colour choices.

Reach for the peach and go brave in this buff shade which will sit nicely with navy blue for smarter occasions. Keep this look ironed and refined; only the coolest can carry these off in a casual way without risking looking like they used to be bright red and have faded in the surf.
