Prayer Shorts - the must have sequined short

Waxed, buffed, moisturised, tanned - we've been waiting for the sun to come out for weeks so that we can get our summer-prepped legs out. This weekend the perfect solution, our sequined Prayer shorts were featured in The Independent in a piece all about white summer items. These shorts are ideal for summer strolls, festivals, nights out or lazy days in the park.

Giving the Prayer shorts a chic smart twist, The Independent paired them with a stud collared shirt.

Come and get 'em! You can buy the Prayer shorts in either black or white in Religion stores or online at House of Fraser

The all-over sequin embellishment speaks for itself, so you can go simply monochrome when dressing them up or down. Try a loose vest and killer black heels.

Cara Kilbey from TOWIE looks incredible in her pair - spotted here at Wireless festival. She's worn the Prayer shorts with a Religion Universe shirt, a splash of colour with her red bag, and an enviable tan.
It's not just The Independent who love these shorts - Company mag repped them last month and recommended them for summer festivals too.

TOWIE wear Religion at Wireless

The TOWIE lot are no stranger to a bit of Religion, and who else should Cara, Jess and Tom pick as their outfitters for Wireless festival last weekend? Never before has festival chic been so immaculate - these guys laugh in the face of mud...

Cara and Billie look top notch - what mud?!?
Cara wore the Universe Shirt ...
... With our sequinned Prayer Shorts
Jess was festival ready in head to (almost) toe Religion.

She paired our Root parka....
With a Queen of Hoxton Vest, and our Prayer shorts.
It's a double whammy for Jess - she wore Religion on both days of the festival.

And looked so stunning in this piece, the Union Jack cardigan
And last but not least, lovebird Tom Kilbey looked slick in our Ghost tee and Baron Jeans

You Spin Me Right Round

Did we mention that round lense sunglasses are BIG news this summer? Oh.... we did already? Once more couldn't hurt though right?

Our perspex round lenses have been none-stop-popping-up in the press, and here is the latest: our Sun 17 specs in Stylist. They won a coveted spot on Stylist's 'The Style List' earlier this week - and rightly so. They've got a vintagey-contemporary-rocking-monochrome vibe that's flattering and, you know what, SO summer 2012.

Religion in print - June 2012

Did anyone notice Religion while reading the fashion magazines last month? We did! Here is a selection of our press coverage:
 Our Prayer and Animal Shorts were featured in Company in June.
The Foreign sweat is a must have for festival go-ers. See? Sunday Times Style says so!
Menswear publications have officialy been going kraykray over our Hawaiian and tropical print shirts this season. FHM picked our St. Tropez shirt as one of their top 4 styles.
Drapers, the fashion industry bible profiled our womenswear SS13 collection. How amaze are these fashion illustrations by Jasmijn, our womenswear designer?
 Fiasco is the uber cool fashion and lifestyle mag and we're regular readers over at Religion. In their high street edit, they featured not one but two top-to-toe Religion outfits.

We're finishing with a high note. Spain's Mujerhoy magazine took our Kiss dress to a whole new level.... tribal! We love the eccentric and colourful styling in this picture.
