B-TOWN BEAUTIES HAVE BEEN SPOTTED IN MICRO GYM SHORTS OF LATE
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.”
