Function, finesse and casual style

Made for those long, carefree summer days of towpaths, picnics and freewheeling through the park – the Turn-Up Shorts are a casual, four-pocket short made from a cool, lightweight fabric and featuring front pleats and turn-up hems. The shorts have two side front pockets and two rear welt pockets, one of which has a tonal reflective detail, matching the Wool Blazer. Easy to care for, the shorts have a high-cut waist for a flattering silhouette, bonded belt loops and a hook-and-eye closure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shorts I bought these to have some smart looking shorts I could wear at work on warmer days that would also be comfortable on the bike. They fit well (perhaps run large) and are high waisted so are good on the bike and just cute in general – the pleats are a nice feature. Good quality and easy to wipe down when sprayed (in my case, tomato sauce from the pan). Lovely colour as well. Suffice to say, I bought two pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and classy! I bought this after buying a first pair when visiting the store in NYC. I absolutley love them. I bought them to be able to get to work and immediately go to a meeting when need be. They are comfy and flattering for me which I usually have a problem with but I suppose that's because they, unlike other shorts, are made for a female cyclist's body. Only difference I would want is for then to be longer to make sure they stay prifessional looking when I sit and more colors so I can wear then more often

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great details I bought it in size xxs few weeks ago. The fabrics and details are amazing only if they came in a little smaller! I'm 160cm 43kg, and normally wear size xs, but it is still a bit too big for me with size xxs. Everything else is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who wears (city) short shorts? I feel like I should be in Italy, or the South of France wearing these classy badboys, and have spent a chunk of time working out whether to wear sandals with them or pumps. I'll be honest, I haven't worn them on the bike (yet) because, well, it's April and it would be a bit foolish to think it's that warm in London. However, I may well take them to Nice in the summer and might wear them for commuting in London. I'd better try to not spill anything on them (likely). Sizing runs well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Live in these all summer. Runs slightly large. Don't judge, but I wore these shorts for 4 days straight. These are the rare pair of shorts roomy enough for my legs, but also look a little more dressy and adult. The fabric is great — life-proof and summer-proof. Sizing runs a little bit large. I have sprinter thighs and smaller waist, and usually wear 25 or 26 in jeans, M in other brands' bibs, and S in Rapha bibs/tights. The XS sagged a lot at the waist. I ended up with XXS, which is snug but still fits.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good effort but needs work Got them for Mrs Midori. She was unsure as all shorts she'd tried were not good. These barely made it but for lack of other options. Nice idea relaxed stylish ladies shorts. But unless you be model slim they don't quite fit right. Pin tucks at front baggie out. For ladies with hips it's either pull them up leading to unwanted tightness and camel toe or push them down and you get double waist band issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fit, not sure about the colou Good quality shorts and a good fit, my only criticism is that I am not so keen on the colour as I thought I had bought the darker ones. I think the light green is not really representative of a colour I associate with Rapha. I can't fault the fit thoug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer/Autumn Shorts These shorts couldn't be better. I've worn them non-stop on my commute in Paris since they arrived. They are well cut, lightweight and very stylish. They look fab on their own or with tights (for chilly England weather!) Couldn't recommend enough!

Now that these are in the sale, if they don't fit, can they be returned? (I have a small waist :D but big thighs and a big bottom! :'( )
