christ they look like boys school uniform shorts
but I am sure they'll look gorgeous on your pins

AnnetteProfit Sun 09-Oct-11 20:22:56

i dotn like them pleated

BuckBuckMcFate Sun 09-Oct-11 20:23:36

Yuck.

I like shorts but think they're the wrong length. Unless very tall with very thin legs they'd look frumpy.

Make me think of boy's school shorts.

TethHearseEnd Sun 09-Oct-11 20:23:48

They are a bit AC/DC

ladyintheradiator Sun 09-Oct-11 20:24:48

AnnetteProfit Sun 09-Oct-11 20:24:49

TethHearseEnd Sun 09-Oct-11 20:32:24

TethHearseEnd Sun 09-Oct-11 20:32:47

Uniqlo had some but it is hard to tell how long they are as there was no model shot.

noddyholder Mon 10-Oct-11 09:13:04

Have seen teh pied ones too they are about same length as cos ones.

PinotScreechio Mon 10-Oct-11 09:13:41

I love shorts with thick opaques.

That comment helped you alot, I'm sure.
