You Said: No to Shorts as Eveningwear!

Omiru Poll Result: Shorts as Eveningwear are Out!


Theory Denami ShortWe asked: Would you wear Shorts as Eveningwear?

You said:  No to Shorts as Eveningwear.  Only 21% would choose to wear it.

Style tip?  We have to admit that we’re not really behind this trend either.  Our best tip is simply to avoid it.  If, however, you do take the plunge…wear something long-sleeved on top in order to balance out the extra skin you’re showing with the shorts.

Next question: Bubble-shaped jackets are making their way from the runway to reality.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear a Bubble Jacket?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I always enjoy your polls but when you ask about something like a bubble jacket, the answer is totally dependent on a person’s body type. My answer? They’re really cute — on other people. I have proportionately broader shoulders and not much in the way of hips so they don’t look good on me, unfortunately. Now, if you could get someone to write every so often on what cuts look good on different body shapes, that would be a great feature. Just my suggestion . . . .

    Satin shorts or “evening shorts” remind me too much of the movie Cabaret and tap dancing.

    Excellent point about the dependency on body type, and thanks for the story idea. We’ll have to write a post about current season trends and what body types they look good on!

    And yeah, evening shorts are tough to pull off without looking like you tap danced off the stage at Cabaret :)
