Trends: Hey, Shortie

Oh no, it’s shorts season! Have no fear, my fellow skeptic-of-thigh-bearing friends! I too prefer pairs that are longer, higher, and looser than those of the Daisy Duke variety. Peruse my collection of vintage, handmade, and even custom-sized picks for some immediate anxiety relief. As always, Etsy’s got your back! (Psst! I even have a little something-something for you short-shorts lovers, too.)

    This makes shorts a little less scary. I love those shorts by Looseteeth, very 1940s pin-up.

    Wonderful Katie!!! I love shorts - spent years in them - just so wonderful! Now, though, I would have a fright if I saw myself in a pair that were any shorter than my calves! thanks for this excellent trip down memory lane - with a few laughs!

    There is a very European feel to the design of some of the shorts. The sailor shorts are very cute. Nautical is always trendy in the summer.

  • amuletica

    I LOVE wearing shorts. Espcially "formal" shorts. I think I passed the age of wearing denim shorts well. I already have a few pairs in black, white and grey but I'm definitely planning on buying some red shorts this summer, or even something with a subtle, classy pattern. Fashion is so much fun.
