Trend Report: The New Boy Shorts Gets A Longer Lease For Spring 2013

long bottoms

The closet raid on the boys has begun again, and this spring we’re slipping our silky legs into their shorts. But boy shorts are getting a longer lease this year with a couple of inches more fabric, dropping them anywhere between mid-thigh to just above the knees. The tailored long-bottoms were also fashioned with roomy fits by brands like Chloé, Fendi and Tommy Hilfiger. This trend is definitely one to watch as soon as that thermometer breaks 50 degrees. Let’s not forget fashion’s favorite bad girl Rih Rih already blazed the trend in a big way for two of our favorite looks from her 777 tour last year.
