Attention fit guys, it’s time to put those legs to work. Short shorts are all the rage according to hot labels Dries van Noten, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. So let’s raise those hemlines (and raise a glass to it)! Now there are loads of options. You can go super short (hot pants-y) in tie die denim (as seen at Gucci). Sophisticated in a silky smooth Marilyn Monroe printed version (by Dries van Noten) or banana printed co-ord (by Louis Vuitton). Cheerful in multi colored checks (Missoni-style) or tough in a leather on leather ensemble (by Prada). Business chic in a pleated, woolen number (without that checked handkerchief on your head) like Raf Simons suggested. Or patchwork chic as shows by Junya Watanabe. Leave little to the imagination in a loincloth designed by Vivienne Westwood or opt for shorts that appear like skirts covered with Jesus portrait hyped by Givenchy. Whether rolled up, tucked in, hand cut or gracefully draped; your shorts are bound to make the style statement this season. Kanye’s ‘all chest no legs’ doesn’t apply here. Reveal at the bottom, cover up at the top. Time to hit the gym and work on those (sexy) legs!

P.S. for those who prefer a little more cover up we’ve prepared a trend report on longer shorts including the likes of Balmain, Etro and Dolce & Gabbana. Read it here Just Drop It. (You’re welcome).
