The one and maybe the only good thing about the sweltering heat is that it allows us to put a little leg reveal back on the dress-up menu. And there is no better way to reintroduce your stems to the sun than by stepping it up with eye-catching bottoms. Whether you like your shorts tailored or relaxed, printed or solid, long or well, short, we have a style for you. Liven up your summer style with our picks below:
Zara Suede Shorts (Rs. 5990):
