This season has shaped up to be one of minis, and the micro shorts rank high on the style charts. Pulling away from the distressed denim cut-offs that ooze festival vibes and the raunchy hot pants of the 1970s, the micro shorts of today are decidedly more polished. They cut just under the bum, cheekily grazing the thighs, and come in all manner of print and fabric to cater to every taste. Dolce&Gabbana showed how to play feisty seductress by juxtaposin­g a lace-trimmed satin pair with a studded leather jacket and hardware galore for an edgier take on sexy. Gucci presented a different—but no less alluring— kind of appeal with a provocativ­e look of fur shorts, quirky accessorie­s and lace lingerie. Leaning into haute couture, Givenchy went for a masterful mix of frills, micro plissé and leather that read naughty but nice. Etro, meanwhile, took the relaxed-chic route with a geometric-print number worn with a matching top under a longline vest for resort feels. Chanel, too, debuted a set, but opted for classic tweed in coral and a boy fit for timeless, tailored elegance. Whether you style your mirco shorts with barely there steppers or thigh-high boots, you’re guaranteed to score big with this tiny number. ■
