Fashion world may have been embracing modesty off-late with demure hemlines and lady-like silhouettes but this season designers celebrated the female form by cutting out a sliver of fabric and focusing on the gorgeous gams.  We are talking about the red-carpet gown trend that is infiltrating our day-wear and cocktail hour – the glorious leg-baring skirts.

 A strategically-placed high slit is the perfect way to show a little skin, while sticking to that longer, cool hemline. The amazing thing about this leg revealing cut is that you can dress it down with a slouchy sweater for brunch or jazz it up with a crop top for a night out.

Shorts are the official summer uniform - they are cool, convenient and comfortable but they can pretty easily tread into the sloppy, laid-back, lounge-at-home category. The key to dressing them up like adults is to opt for bold colors and luxurious fabrics that give this relaxed style a sophisticated uptown spin. We have got some seriously eye catching pieces that will inspire you to bare your legs in the chicest way possible:

 

Zara Shorts (Rs. 2990): 

Lace detailing gives these shorts a sweet feminine touch and the front flap gives them the mini skirt status. This pair will keep you looking good from morning to night without having to worry about keeping your legs crossed all the time. Throw over a chambray shirt and brown leather sandals for a Sunday brunch and jazz them up for the evening by teaming with an equally delicate top in and a black blazer. 

Koovs Sequin Shorts (Rs. 1995):
Sequin pattern, scalloped edges and rich jewel tones makes this pair a show stopper. Team them with a black silk tank preferably with a low-cut back, platform pumps and a berry lip for a fancy after hours look.

Forever 21 Shorts (Rs. 900 approx):
This light breezy pair of geo print shorts would look great with a slouchy tank, ankle boots and piles of jewelry for that quintessential bohemian look.

Vero Moda Shorts (Rs. 1195; Shoppers Stop):
If the butterfly print doesn’t make you happy - nothing will. A fun twist on the classic sailor stripes these shorts deliver both on charm and comfort. Pick on the bright chartreuse color and throw on a top in the hue to complete your cheery summer ensemble. 

 

Street 9 Shorts (Rs. 849; Fashionara.com):
These flowing, billowy bottoms are just the thing to slip into for a day of shopping or errand-running because unlike an actual skirt, there's no danger of being accidentally exposed by a sudden gust of wind. We would wear them with a our favorite tee and slip-ons or mix them with a printed crop top and Birkenstocks for that California cool gal vibe.
