The backlash against the hipster cut is in full force in women’s fashion, which is lucky for us lovers of retro tailoring and silhouettes. The high waist has been brought back to revive the trouser cuts that were so very popular with the women who didn’t rely upon their frocks in the 50s and 60s.
The summer range at Oli has taken the high waist further with these tailored shorts, which remind me of classic Old Hollywood style. Great for summer, the French Matelot style fastening of the navy pair adds another classic element to the garment.
The shorts cost £35 and £30 each (left to right) from Oli online.
