Shorts story


DNA (Delhi) - - STYLE - Man­ish D Mishra

If you’ve got those legs, don’t shy away from flaunt­ing them” — that seems to be the adage run­ning true from our B-Town lasses who’ve been run­ning er­rands and jug­gling meet­ings in cutesy, teeny tiny pair of gym shorts. In­ter­na­tion­ally, shorts also were a ma­jor story on the Spring Sum­mer 2018 run­ways of Nina Ricci and Is­abel Marant. Back home, de­signer Payal Sing­hal in her pre-fall col­lec­tion, teamed a mi­cro mini ver­sion with a long top, which had a dra­matic high-low hem­line. Surily Goel’s glam shorts and boho taselled waist­coats have been do­ing the rounds on the party cir­cles seen on the likes of Ujjwala Raut. From tai­lored and femme fa­tale-ish hot pants seen on the likes of Bi­pasha Basu to denim ver­sions rocked by Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez, shorts seems to be the key pap story. Re­cently Yami Gau­tam was seen in a grey pair and Sara Ali Khan, who has an in­cred­i­ble pair of legs is of­ten seen in mi­cro gym shorts. Last week, Shrad­dha Kapoor teamed a black slouchy top with a pair of khaki shorts. At Paris Fash­ion Week too, Chloé show­cased them in a lan­guid avatar and Is­abel Marant show­cased a pair of me­tal­lic blouses with cropped trousers. Guess it’s time to work on the legs at the gym to rock th­ese sta­ples.

An off-shoot of ath­leisure

Even global glama­zons like Blake Lively have been sported in sweat­shirt-in­spired sep­a­rates and their Insta feed is proof. De­signer Surily Goel says, “It’s a ca­sual and comfy look and they are young girls who long for that laid­back cool.”

Com­fort over style

De­signer Rick Roy ob­serves that film stars of­ten long for that com­fort as they are snowed un­der as­sign­ments and com­mit­ments. He says, “It’s also com­fort some­times. They want to show off their toned legs. I think Disha Patani has fan­tas­tic legs so why not flaunt them.”
