Shorts are a staple for summer and a necessity for holiday packing. They come in all shapes and sizes, so it's important to find the right pair for you. Denim shorts are always a popular choice, as they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. If you're looking for something a little more fun, floaty summer shorts with printed patterns or bold colours can add some personality to your outfit. Cycling shorts are a great practical option because of their comfort and length, so if you're going on a walk or bike ride these will be perfect for you. Cycling shorts are also a great trendy piece when paired with an oversized t shirt and trainers. Shop our range of shorts now!

A summer staple

Opening up your wardrobe and finding you don’t have that perfect item of clothing can be a nightmare. This can be particularly true with shorts, as we tend to have a few pairs for holiday. But, shorts shouldn’t be confined to a few weeks of the year, which is why our selection of women’s shorts feature styles that can be worn throughout the year.

Women's shorts for different seasons

While your suitcase should never be without a few pairs of shorts, our offering provides shorts that can be worn during summer and even knee length shorts for autumn or winter – depending on how you layer them. You’ll even discover materials like linen and denim, plus designs that are sure to flatter your figure whilst giving you a look you’ll always be confident wearing.

The perfect length

Maybe you want to get your legs out and enjoy a little tanning during the summer, or maybe you want to be covered up a little when the summer nights get cooler. Throughout our range of women’s shorts you’ll find both short shorts, medium and knee-length designs to choose from. So, no matter what you’re looking for, they’ll be here.

Shorts in a variety of materials

Do you love denim? Well, luckily for you we have plenty of denim shorts on offer. From the summer when they can be paired with anything, to winter where you can wear them layered with leggings, denim shorts are a classic item everyone should own. But, if you don’t like denim, we also have jersey shorts to choose from too – which are a must-have suitcase filler.

Printed and patterned women's shorts

Throughout our shorts collection, you’ll discover a range of patterns and prints to help inject a little fun into your outfits. But, if stripes, tie-dye and animal print aren’t your thing, you’ll also discover pairs in all-over colours.
