 - How to work the spring/summer shorts trend whatever your age

Though it may not seem like it 90% of the time, spring is most definitely around the corner; in fact that may even have been a ray of sunshine trying to escape from that thick blanket of cloud just now...

When spring makes its yearly debut, summer is sure to make a bright and startling appearance when we least expect it; when the thought of casting off woolly knits and thick opaques seems like torture and you suddenly realise it’s been five months since you partook in any form of exercise...

So we at SoFeminine decided to offer a helping hand. Think of it as a pink post-it note, there to remind you that soon winter will be long gone and it’ll be time to break out the spring/summer 10 trends.

Shorts are back.

There, we said it. No wrapping anyone in cotton wool around here. The tricky trend that sends most women into a panic was seen all over the catwalks; cargo hotpants at Balenciaga, leather at Hermes, YSL and Chloe, organza at Valentino, palm tree print at Prada (say that four times quickly) and metallic at Matthew Williamson - shorts are here for the long haul.

But rather than grope at your legs in despair and resign yourself to skinnies in what may be the hottest summer yet, (though whatever happened to that barbecue summer last year?) have a look at our guide to shorts for all ages.
