An interesting trend (well, to me anyway) is the not-quite-a-pair-of-shorts shorts.
It's like the designers don't want to admit they're making what is traditionally knock-around-on-the-weekends attire. Although shorts do have a growing acceptance as casual business attire and going-out wear.
Alexander Wang had his apron shorts. Now there are these. They're not perfect — check out that price, nearly $1,000. Woof. Plus, the angled cut gives 'em a wedgie look. Not attractive.
Still, I like the idea. Just several hundred dollars cheaper and with an even hemline, and I'd be sold. This is where knowing how to really sew would come in handy.
