Decades ago the shorts vs skirts debate would have been won hands down by the skirt, after all we have to admit it is the classic of the two. However modern tailoring has taken the short from the beach and put it firmly into every women’s wardrobe.
So where do we stand now? Well the skirt has an air of femininity that the short at times doesn’t but then the perfect city short gives off an air of chicness that the skirt can at times fail to offer. But then each has its place, and rightly so. For a day at the races you can’t beat a classic lace, midi, pencil skirt but likewise for lunch with the girls, silk city shorts with matching blazer and a contrast cami ensures you look on trend and uber chic.
So really it is up to you. It is about finding a style you love, that works for you – and both can be treated the same from a styling perspective, Midi lengths require a heel to keep the leg elongated, whilst full and maxi lengths look great with your favourite pair of flats – so if anything, it is just an excuse to add the perfect skirt and shorts to your wardrobe. Why decide when you can have both!
