Rita Ora has seriously stepped up her shorts game with these pale green and grey printed wide-legged lovelies.
As seen at Alexander Wang and Arnani, culottes are officially cool again. But get those stiff Girl Guide-esque styles out of your head, pronto, because this season it’s all about swishy silks, grown-up tailoring and floral blooms when it comes to your mid-calf bottoms.
The 23-year-old I Will Never Let You Down singer took her cue from Armani’s sleek SS14 workwear and gave her psychadelic boxy-cut bottoms a masculine edge by teaming with a sharp white shirt and silver strappy stilettos.
Red lippy, slicked back hair and a matching printed wrap shawl completed Rita’s standout spring look.
For an office friendly ensemble, pair your grown-up culottes with a blazer in a matching hue, or sporty-up your summer-ready shorts by teaming with a colour-pop varsity jacket for an on-trend weekend look.
