Shorts, a staple through fall

I am all of the sudden into trouser, dress shorts, although I am normally concerned about their lack of flattery. These shorts are different because the leg hole isn't meant to squeeze your thighs in the wrong places. The wide leg and the tulip appearance of them create a more flattering shape, complimenting already existing curves, depending on what you wear with it. They appeared on the Spring 2010 runway, Ellie Tahari, pictured above. And they are staying through Fall 2010, Azzaro, pictured below.

I am even liking the leather variety of shorts, albiet an impractical purchase. The Wall Street Journal made a reference to them being the only thing that the girl with everything doesn't have in her closet, here.

The Blonde Salad styles them perfectly here. I think the loose style of the shorts look good with a fitted top.

You know, there is something about big shorts that slim one's legs though and make one's waist tinier. I really like the pieces you featured :-)

The top look is so beautiful! The shorts just fit so well and I love the colour!
I too wonder if the same person did the knitting project near your home…Hmmm :)
Thanks for sharing :)

Yeah, I don't really know how to practically apply the first outfit. Maybe if I had business meetings to attend in South America? I don't know.
