High-waisted shorts - July 2016

I know we're right in the heart of winter in Australia, and in Sydney this winter has been icy cold. Nonetheless, there are places to be and people to see; you still have to attend functions and get out and about even in freezing temperatures, so why not do it with some style and panache?

I have repeatedly expressed my love for wearing items that are unique and have a little bit of flair. On that note, I bought these stylish leather-look, high-waisted shorts from Sheike. I opted for the tan because it’s a great colour to wear in winter, as an alternative to black, and can then be easily transitioned into the Spring/Summer seasons paired with lighter shades, but they are also available in black (and look ultra-chic!) for those who wish to play it safe.

The shorts are a little baggy in their cut making your legs appear long and slim, and are fitted without being tight around the waist due to the elasticated stretch waistband and adjustable waist tie, so feel really comfortable on. Plus, they are fully lined.

I like wearing shorts in the colder months because you can dress them up with thick sweaters and jackets, even a trench coat for a trendy twist and create various looks to get the most out of your items.

For a girls' night out I paired the shorts with opaques, knee-high boots and a fitted cold-shoulder top to balance out the high waist and relaxed fit of the shorts. Just don't forget your coat! ;-)

Shorts: Sheike and in black – Top: mine is old similar here, here, here, here (red looks awesome with tan), here, here, here (also love navy with tan!) and here – Boots: old from Nine West love these ones here and here.
