Designed in house based upon your feedback and made in London from GOTS certified organic cotton. View more of our own range here.

Detailed Description

Our Summer Own Range is designed by our in house team and intended to be classic and timeless additions to your wardrobe. Best part of these beauties though is that they can be worn all year round. Seriously! Just add a pair of tights and some statement boots in the cooler months.

When designing these shorts we wanted to create a streamlined silhouette so we opted to keep the flat front and have a side zip with a button on the waistband. We think this looks and feels better, what are your thoughts? Of course we also had to add some generous pockets in the side seams because we like having somewhere to pop essentials like house keys and phone. 

Our retro boutique is well known and widely respected for its excellent range of clothing inspired by the past. You weren't born in the wrong era, you just haven't shopped at Revival yet! This is why we chose to add pleats to the front of these shorts: it gives a nod to the tailored shorts of the 1940s and 1950s whilst being flattering and adding subtle detail. 

These shorts are currently available in sizes 6-16 but we are working towards creating more plus sizes as we believe in being as inclusive as possible. We design for different body shapes and across our own range we currently produce sizes 6-22. We always appreciate input so let us know your thoughts.

Our summer range is created with minimising our impact on the environment in mind. Made in a beautifully soft but thick, breathable organic cotton that holds the shape so well! With GOTS certification we know that every part of the process of creating this cotton has been inspected.                                                                 

 Material: 100% organic cotton
