Wearing: Topshop denim shirt / Zara skort / Sunday Somewhere sunglasses / Proenza Schouler bag / Topshop Unique heels
Ah, the ubiquitous Zara skort. I know everyone and their mum have it but unlike dungarees/overalls and Birkenstock sandals, skorts and heeled sandals are the only trends that I'm digging for Summer. I like the concept of skorts because they're practical in that you have the same comfort and ease of movement which you would have if you were to wear shorts, but they give your outfit a polished and dressy element as they look like skirts from the front. I practically live in shorts in the Summer and skorts add some much-needed variety to my Summer looks. They allow me to not look like I'm wearing shorts all the time even though I am technically wearing shorts (all the time). That's a win-win in my case. Anyway, I really like this Zara skort: the asymmetric design looks striking and the geometric structure is oddly flattering. I initially wanted to wear it with a basic grey t-shirt but it'd look too much like this outfit. Then, I wanted to wear it in an all-white look but I don't have any suitable white accessories. In the end, I decided to pair it with an old Topshop bleached denim shirt and badass black accessories, including my new Topshop Unique heels that I picked up in the sale for only £30 (marked down from £125!) which is an absolute bargain.
