Remember these? I do, and I really didn’t like them when they were in trendy in the 80s after Adidas sponsored the 1980 Olympics, and I’m on the fence now. It’s not the shorts fault; I have a very disturbing memory of these shorts revealing too much of an already gross male’s nuts and bolts, if you know what I mean. There is just too much room for error with that side slit.
The warm weather has brought out a new generation of running shorts, and they are not as loose, some are quite tight actually, and Top Shop is selling them in a wide variety of colors and prints with a side panel so the TMI issue is resolved.
They even made an appearance at London Fashion Week over leggings at Sibling’s Spring 2013 Menswear show last week.
Fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni steps out wearing a pair of cheeky black American Apparel running shorts with a pair of strappy black heels. A grey Markus Lupfer sweater and a 3.1 Phillip Lim clutch bag complete her sporty ensemble. What’s your opinion on running shorts? On trend or keep it moving?
