Who Wears Short Shorts? Definitely Not Us

September 19, 2007 by Jeanine Edwards

If you've been keeping up with any runway reports (or even just looking at the pretty pictures), you've probably spotted this…"trend" – the unexpected reemergence of shorts. And no, we're not talking about Bermudas or even the ones that hit mid-thigh. Nope, these are cocktail shorts, and boy are they short.

On the runway, they don't look half-bad. Maybe it's because we can't get a good close-up view, but it might also have something to do with the fact that the woman (or teenager) wearing them is a stick thin amazon. Either way, I personally don't think this is a very wearable or practical style for anyone under 5'10 or over a size 2.

Cocktail shorts seem to be great for showing off incredibly long, lean (and I do mean lean) legs – the other side of that, though, is because they hit so high, they also happen to show off everything else. Yes, that includes cellulite, stretch marks, and any number of other imperfections most of us would prefer to keep hidden.

In case you still don't know what I'm talking about (or maybe you're feeling brave enough to invest in a pair?), check out these variations:

So would you wear them or are they a for-models-only fad? Leave us a comment below and tell us what you think.
