Bralet and Short Shorts, Bonnaroo

To beat the heat on the steamy first day of Bonnaroo, many guests wore not much at all. Better to opt for a cute bralet and short shorts like these, however, than just a bikini. It’s a way to keep cool but stay dressed.

Leather Shorts, Outside Carlos Miele

Every once in a while someone comes along who has that “It” quality. This young girl, a fashion blogger, drew crowds of street style photographers outside the Carlos Miele show. Hope we see more of her.  (more…)

Sarah Rutson in Short Shorts, Donna Karan Show

If you barely remember how to dress yourself in anything other than flip flops and shorts, it’s time for a refresher course before NY Fashion Week. Fortunately many of last September’s attendees were so ahead of the curve, their looks can easily be adopted for this fall.

And you don’t necessarily have to give up those shorts. Here, Lane Crawford’s Sarah Rutson wears short shorts with a long necklace, military green Proenza Schouler PS1 bag (always in fashion) and lace-up suede boots, dressing up a sporty chic outfit for the Donna Karan show.  (more…)

Girls in Short Shorts, Martha’s Vineyard

Another reason short shorts trumped maxi skirts this summer is their appeal in places other than New York, where a billowing maxi skirt might seem a little too Stevie Nicks on Main Street. These girls wore short shorts to shop on Main Street, Edgartown.

Leopard Top and Cut-Offs, Prince Street

As tweeted, I am so tired of seeing everyone in NYC in shorts and t-shirts. The outfit can easily be upgraded with a nice top like this leopard blouse, a nice bag and sheer black flats, with all the comfort of shorts. See? Not so hard.

Short Shorts Overalls, Union Square

One of the most interesting fashion stories this year is the huge trend that wasn’t: maxi skirts. Despite their appeal to the fashion set (including me, who featured them on this blog several times), on the streets they lost major ground to short shorts, a counter trend. One of my friends described her failed attempt at maxi skirts and dresses this way: “My husband hates long skirts.”

Is it the extreme heat or the avoidance of man repellent clothing that won out? Who knows, but the people have spoken. Short shorts like this cool outfit of black linen overalls and a backpack have become the uniform of summer 2011.

Model in Denim Shorts, Chrystie Street

There’s no question about it: ultra short denim shorts are the uniform of choice this summer for models off duty. Why not, when you’ve got the legs?

The Amalfi Coast: What to Wear

The Amalfi Coast may be the beach, technically speaking, but a suitcase full of cut-offs and old T-shirts won’t get you very far here. Italians dress in a polished, pulled-together style at all times, and they’re very conscious of the quality of clothing and accessories. The gorgeous light here calls for saturated colors in lightweight materials – so say arrivederci to your urban jungle uniform.

Think Pink, Union Square

Retro, high-waisted 1950s shorts are making a comeback in a big way this summer. Here they look great worn with a floppy wide-brimmed hat with heels and pink accents throughout for extra pinup girl appeal.

If you’ve got legs, now’s the time to show them off with short shorts, a big hit for S/S 2011. Also of-the-moment: tie-front shirts, like this one in denim.

City Shorts, Chrystie Street

Once just for suburban preps and tennis players, shorts have become a standard part of the urban wardrobe – even for work, if you can swing it. Black linen shorts are particularly versatile, paired here with a black and white polka dot blouse, black socks, tattoos and oxfords. Bermuda redux?

Nicholas Kirkwood Shoes on Stephanie LaCava

I received a press release about Miranda Kerr’s fabulous shoes at the Met Costume Gala this morning and recognized them from Paris fashion week, where they also appeared on the feet of style star Stephanie LaCava in the black version. Here they are, by Nicholas Kirkwood – totally lust-worthy.  Full shot of Ms. LaCava after the jump. (more…)

Aurelie Claudel

Anyone willing to bare her legs in yesterday’s 80-degree weather brought out the shorts, especially rompers. This model-esque woman in NoLita sported a navy blue short shorts romper with a wide caramel-colored belt, black sandals and cross-body bag, perfectly mixed and accessorized.

Last Show: Louis Vuitton SS2011

Alas, it’s always sad when Fashion Week ends, so I’ve been delaying this post for weeks. But on the last day in Paris, the Louis Vuitton show capped off the week, and a number of interesting models, celebs and fashion people made the scene.

A model leaves the show in a dramatic black fur cape, long black skirt and black felt hat. (more…)
