Short Shorts in SS07

So it seems that the short shorts from last season have prevailed onto the SS07 catwalk.
They are crisper and sharper than ever paired with the softer tops this season. For something more girly, pair them with feminine, frilly, soft tops like above in left: Derek Lam and right: Zac Posen. I LOVE the Peter Som (whoops! thx, I got too lazy to check!) outfit here, the contrast of the pretty frilly top and cardigan with the crisp boxy shorts is stunning.
For something more casual, pair them with this season's just as boxy structured tops left: Pringle of Scotland or loose tops right: Paul Smith. Last season I was still floundering, but this season I think I REALLY want a pair of white short shorts- preferably a boxy pair, because I think the "boxiness" has more volume, making the legs look slimmer. Also, it doesn't look as skimpy as hot pants.
So I am starting to look again this season. I am definitely going for white, because I think it will match everything best. Something like these two above from left: Adam + Eve and right: Express. In fact, I think I'll go to Express this weekend and try them on and see if they fit as perfect as they look!
More cute shorts from Alice + Olivia. I love the cuff details on the grey shorts!
For a bit more interesting details, go for the rows of buttons like these two from left: Lauren Moffatt and right: Express. Although, the downside is that its going to be the devil to take off, so don't wear them when you're going shopping for bottoms!

Psst...you meant Phillip Lim, not Derek Lam. We aren't all the same, you know ;). Fun post. I love shorts.

Arguably some of these aren't really short shorts; the Paul Smith ones seem to be of a universally-flattering length that's not too short or too long. I'm a bit concerned about how shorts with front pleats would look on the regular-sized person!

I really like the great assortment of white shorts :]

I love the boxy shorts. They give off a very clean, crisp and preppy look and are very flattering. I need a pair in white for this summer.

I have been looking for a pair of shorts like these for ever. Do you know where I could get them from in the UK (high street)

Totally agree! Capris and bermuda shorts are both kind of out. I've noticed that all the cuts that are popular have this A-line, pleated look. Very sweet and cute!

though short shorts are adorable, only ppl with fairly skinny legs can pull it off...in my opinion :P
there has to be a certain boxy shape that these shorts have to be in

This trend has even invaded men's wear. It's a breath a fresh air to me. And at least it's getting done right this time with properly tailored shorts and no sign of jean shorts!

I looove shorts. Bought them even at winter to be ready for summer. Stylisch and better than mini skirts.

The front pleats are definitely hard to pull off, but Express' editor styles make for fantastic and flattering cuts, esp for those whose legs aren't exactly model-thin. JCrew is also pretty good with the flat-front cuts. Not exactly "boxy" shorts anymore, but they help you imitate the boxy look without the unflattering camel's toe.
