Trend transition: How to wear denim in your 20's

Mini jean shorts

Alexa Chung’s infinite legs clad in minute denim shorts. The deadly image that encourages even the most sensible among us to purchase this ‘summer staple’ - the denim hotpant: just a lick of fake tan, add a Breton top and, hey presto, we’ll look like Brigitte Bardot.

But, as the end of August approaches and those Daisy Dukes lie crisp and unworn, mocking you in your skinny jeans. It takes confidence to wear shorts so tiny they reveal all your deepest, darkest secrets (cellulite, a less than thorough wax...)

Of course there are the smug among us who decided to ignore bum skimming denim shorts but are now reconsidering with the idea of a pair of opaque tights. If that’s the case, then look to Mango with their high-waisted denim shorts as modelled by Scarlett Johansson (pictured left) or Topshop with their buttoned grunge version - they'll both look great with tights.
