After years of refusing to wear the dreadfully casual short, I officially surrendered a few months back after seeing the mass of insanely cool versions coming down the runway and streets.

Of course now I’m completely hooked, and plan on giving my closet full of dresses and skirts some rest this summer while I rock their bike/scooter/park friendly kid sister instead.

And though I totally plan on showing off my (blindingly pale) gams, Hanneli’s leather+lace-up look is kind of blowing my mind right now.

The question is, which look do you all plan on channeling??

    I’m loving the return of cut-offs, either with bare legs & tights. I would love to rock some of the pretty floral high-waisted ones I’ve been seeing, but alas, my bods in no shape for that…

    I really enjoy my fabulously creamy skin and hate the dreaded tanline that ultimately follows the wearing of short-shorts outdoors. I will most likely be donning a pair of ripped up black nylons, maybe in layers, just to give a pair of black, cuffed shorties and oxford shirt with rolled up sleeves some new dimension. Of course, the look wouldn’t be complete without suspenders and my lovely lace-up boots!

    I would wear my ripped denim short shorts with some acne wedges, a plain black bandeu and some fingerless leather gloves.
