With these lovely cream retro polka dot bow shorts, it would have been easy to create a cute pinup look with just a black or red top. Today, I chose to team it with a slightly unexpected colour – a light purple. The top is silk and its ruffles add a soft, feminine touch. I then added a pair of adorable vintage-inspired peacock earrings, a soft, slouchy black bag, and a pair of retro-inspired pumps, in pink for a splash of colour.

There is a lot going on with this pair of shorts – big pockets, turned up hems, stripes, and a big bow! – so I chose to go for simple pieces to compliment it. There was also the issue of it being described as Mint Ticking Bow Stripe Shorts on the Miss Selfridge website – surely “mint” means green, but they look pretty grey to me! So just to be on the safe side, I chose a colour palette that would flatter either colour.
I started by adding a simple white vest but to keep things interesting, chose one with some subtle embellishment – the macrame detailing teamed with the braided straps of the gladiator sandals help create a bit of a relaxed bohemian feel, and so I decided to push it a little further by adding accessories that clearly take their inspiration from India. The result is a cute, feminine, casual summer look that will look great against a tan.

So much can be done with Denim Jeans Shorts – they are really versatile and should be a staple in everyone’s summer wardrobe. I chose to dress them up for effortless summer chic with exotic pieces and a pair of gorgeous strapped sandals (which I looove). Can’t you picture yourself wearing this drinking cocktails in a little Riviera café?

Seems like everyone is inspired by Alice in Wonderland these days. Can’t remember a film having this much influence on high street shops in a long time. Anyway, just came across this great retro Alice in Wonderland t-shirt by Truly Madly Deeply on Urban Outfitter’s website. A simple cool tee paired with jeans goes a long way on a casual day, and this one is perfect for such a purpose. £28.
