The Cut

Style By Numbers

Style By Numbers

If, like us, you’re hungry for a summer style that will keep you cool (in every sense of the word), look no further than the season’s hero trouser trend: shorts. The SS19 runways pegged the move in every possible iteration – from Off-White’s street-slick offerings to bold prints at Loewe – and now, we’re tapping Thom Browne for a look with the legs to survive your busy social calendar. 

1. Mr Bright Side

When the mercury rises and summer begins in earnest, treat a pair of shorts as though they’re your starting point amid an assemblage of seasonal staples: stock up on fluid silk shirts, starched T-shirts and Italian-made leather sandals.

HOW TO WEAR HARRODS | Up the ante and leave your button-down loose over a meticulous white T-shirt for the peak of sophisticated insouciance.

2. Man On The Run

While the SS19 runways proved shorts are no longer reserved for the training ground, they remain an athleisure mainstay. Channel the look (without breaking a sweat) by flanking yours with a fashion-forward sweatshirt and sneakers – a clever compromise for anyone who’s not yet sold on all-out summer dressing.

HOW TO WEAR HARRODS | Double down on sportswear references with a belt bag; A.P.C.’s Lucille logo option is one of the season’s bests.

3. Dapper Dan

Keeping one eye on sophistication (think Jude Law’s Dickie Greenleaf in The Talented Mr Ripley), play up to a traditional mood and turn your attention towards effortless tailoring. Polo Ralph Lauren’s preppy signatures are natural wingmen – and a classic blazer will be worth its weight in gold come summer’s al fresco activities.

HOW TO WEAR HARRODS | Looking to Polo Ralph Lauren once more, we’re knotting a cable-knit sweater (in an equally subtle palette) around the shoulders, just in case the weather turns.
