Last summer was defined as the season of cutting up multiple pairs of skinny jeans. The spring of ’09 going into summer, a major trend that will be seen is baggier pairs of shorts. The length of the shorts will be from extremely short to calf length. The beginning of the spring is a perfect time to test wearing leggings and even stockings with your shorts that are being carried over from last summer. From experiencing the tight short trend last year, I learned sometimes they were uncomfortable, ripped easily if cut to short, & gave to much of a slutty look that was not able to easily go from day to night (also going overboard and cutting expensive jeans hurt you down the road). Dress shorts will be seen a lot worn as a suit and pleated shorts with the baggy look is also a definite pair to look out for. Word of advice, instead of cutting more denim, cut & hem the pair of slacks hanging in your closet.
