Summer Is Here, And Here's Our Big Shorts List

Navni posted on 05 May

If there’s a movie that can encapsulate the spirit of Bangalore these days, it’s 500 Days Of Summer {and we’re not talking about the plot}. As the temperature skyrockets to well over 40 degrees, we can’t help but throw our denims and jeggings into dusty trunks and score ourselves some cool summer shorts in cotton and linen. You can join in the shopping too.

Marks & Spencer

For classy whites, beiges and blacks, head to Marks & Spencer. They’ve got a ton of shorts for both men and women, which are both comfortable and chic. From super short beachy shorts to the more formal ‘polo’ variety, they’ve got it all. And their shorts last long.

Commercial Street

If you’re okay stepping out in the heat {it can be worth it!}, then there’s no better place than Commercial Street for comfy summer shorts at super low prices. You can get everything from running shorts, denim shorts, cargo shorts, high waisted shorts to the dressier variety, provided you have the patience. Want a pair with better quality? Then head to Vashi’s Jean Shack for a cotton pair.

Price: Starting at INR 150

    Miss Chase

    Miss Chase should be your destination if you’re looking for shorts that are feminine, complete with lace and the occasional bling. Go bold with their metallic gold shorts, or keep it subtle yet girly with these black crochet shorts, ideal for a night out. They’ve also got the regular shorts in colours like cobalt blue and bright yellow.

    Max Stores

    Max Stores comes as a shining ray of light when we’ve exhausted most of the month’s salary. With shorts and shirts starting as low as INR 300, every trip here seems almost like a trip to Disneyland {almost}. They cater to both men and women and house cargo shorts, culottes, hot pants and lounging shirts. When it comes to the quality, our purchases from here have lasted us at least three years.

    One of our favourite online spots for a spot of shopping, Koovs doesn’t disappoint in the shorts department either. With an equally good selection for both women and men, we’re seeing lots of colours, prints, styles and materials.We’re loving the Aztec print shorts as well as the Hawai-inspired floral shorts for men.

    Women can choose from high waisted ones, culottes and shorts embellished with fringes and tassels.

    We once scored a pair of uber summery shorts from here—white base with bright yellow lemons and green leaves printed all over, and we’ve been meaning to back and get something similar this summer. Mango’s all about the colours and pretty prints. We like.

    Forever 21

    Stripes, checks, Aztec, floral on denims, cottons and tweed. Forever 21 stays true to its name and woos with its young, colourful designs. We’re currently lusting after these navy and cherry red high-waisted shorts. There’s a lot of distressed denim in their current collection and we think you should check it out asap.

    We like this one more for the boys—they’ve taken the regular cargo shorts they love to live in and created them in a bunch of different colours- think yellow, pink and blue besides the regular khaki and grey.
