Even when the temperatures heat up (which they seem to officially be doing), I tend to steer clear of shorts. I’m not a fan of anything too. . . well. . . short. And, maybe this is my age talking, but shorts seem to get shorter every year. I’ve had many a moment in a dressing room wondering who looks good in shorts that barely cover . . . anything.
Cue the sound of angels singing when I found this pair by 3.1 Phillip Lim. They are long, but flattering. And longer shorts are super cool now (have you heard? I swear, it’s not just me saying so). Taking their cue from the masculine/feminine vibe of tailoring these days, longer shorts say, “I’m ready to enjoy the weather. But I’m not going to show any more than you would, dear sir.” Or something like that.
Let’s just say, I’m in.
