Short Trends Spring/Summer 2005

By shorts, I mean pants that run above the knee-just to be clear you know. Terms nowadays are SO confusing. Back on the topic of shorts, the era of super tight short shorts are over(thank god), being replaced by well tailored, ladylike, loose bermuda shorts! And just in case you were wondering, the official definition of bermuda shorts according to dictionary.com is: Short pants that end slightly above the knee. Also known as Jamaica shorts.

As you can see,
well tailored and loosely fitted bermuda shorts are very prominent on the catwalk this season, featuring in the Zac Posen and Carolina Herrera show. Note how both are matched in a very ladylike manner with a tucked in blouse. And yes, white is very hot this season. So hot that simply looking at certain catwalk photos are blinding (check out Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 05).

For those of yor who want to go short, go short the Dries Van Noten/Prada way. Never super short and stylishly cut to loosely fit. And add a ladylike touch to them with stylishly cut blazers!

And take shorts to the next season with these dark and unique creations from Diane von Furstenberg and Chloe. I love these from DvF, I love the color, the cutting and the way they matched it- with a distinctly safari flair. And no wonder really, Bermuda is a group of islands off in the Atlantic! And these Chloe ones, with rolled up hem and the row of three button lends it a sophistication that makes it perfect for the fashionable office look. And their dark colors makes them much more resistant to the change of season, unlike the very light colored and distinctly summery shorts shown above.

And off the catwalk these tailored, loosely fitted and very detailed shorts go on Ashley Olsen. Love how she mixes it with such casual hoodie and flip flops (well. . maybe not those flip flops. . not that color anyway).

For the classical bermuda shorts, I am loving this ones from Armani Exchange.

For more of a twist, try these blue striped ones from American Eagle. Blue stripes are all the thing this season after all.

I used to have this idea that shorts looked really trashy and all (back in the short shorts days) so I only wore them for gym class. But I love the short trends this season, its just soo ladylike and stylish! Match them up with sandals, heels, flats and flip flops and your ready to go! And maybe sneakers if you are going for the shorter ones and have real long legs. Must go shopping!

Thank goodness the era of micro shorts are out. The shorts this season are so much more stylish and easy to wear.

I agree that the Diane von Furstenberg outfit is really cute! To me, dressy and shorts doesn't feel comfortable, so I like the safari look she created. All the elements look so good together. Great post--I'm more positive about the shorts options now.

Prada's colors are luscious. I love the rich tones with the jolt of electric yellow.
