    Interesting trend. I like how Marie (#3) does it…

    The first two are passable (actually number two is the best)–the last three photos, to me, there is just too much going on there to be fashionable. Logos or strange combos ruin the look. Basketball shorts just distort the body shape if they are too big. It just looks sloppy in my opinion.

    The second look works but i don’t know about the rest. I’m nor really a fan of the oversized ones. They all look too boxy

    The first look is so cool! Faux fur would also make a good hem. Inspired!

    Personally, I still think that Basketball Short should be matched with sneakers / NIKE Flip Flop or Birkenstock. With high heels, it’s a bit over fashion. Love the pic #1

    Women’s bball shorts look horrible on the court, and they look no better on the street. Yikes.

    The looks are complicated and are not in harmony …it looks like they just jumped from bad and they think we should think its stylish…

    I’m personally glad that the female bellybutton is making it’s presence once a gain…I thought they all flew south with the monarchs. Pity the bellybuttons didn’t escort the baggy shorts with them and leave them there though!

    Well, they make basketball shorts look really good! Still not a huge fan of the trend though

    I’m all about comfort, but not when it makes me feel like a sack of potatoes

    Amazing shorts! I love the first one

    Yet another example that the key to fashion is being born beautiful.

    Weird to me that these are being called basketball shorts. Only a couple of these might qualify. I’d like to see the top ones on any urban playground court in the US, would be pretty funny. This whole concept makes me feel like the fashion world is just out of touch with the rest of society, and not in a good way.

    love the first shot – does anyone know what model those nikes are in the first image?! they are fab!

    Love the idea of sports wear mixed with different style to make a gym look more trendy but the heels go a little to far!

    I love how they are flowy like skirts!

    But I’ve got to say, that last outfit is none too flattering… wearing those shoes and dark shorts cuts the legs off visually.

    They all wear it in so many different wines – a celebration of creativity and different points of view!

    It’s great to see the contrast between the sportswear elements and the more fashionable pieces. The shorts are rather like 1970s culottes.

    The second look is nice. Just needs some refinement & given a parisian chic makeover…. Great photo!

    Third photo is nice. Great look just needs some parisian chic refinement. Again great photo…..

    I kinda like these, especially the third look!

    The third photo is perfection. I love the shorts, the long sleeved top, everything. Its immediately impressive. But all of the looks are cute, except for the first one, that nude hip thing is somewhat crass.

    I am agreement with the majority about the third photo being chic.

    Only my opinion but: Beautiful women… Remarkably unappealing shorts.

    I knew the moment I saw Ursula with these shorts on this blog that a trend had just started. This woman is beyond fashion creating it. I also think it is only a matter of time before the “basketball” shorts start appearing on the runways in a slightly more refined version. And many of the people frowning on them now would be wearing them pretty soon…I am much more interested in seeing the evolution of this trend than the see-through-lace-skirt-without-underwear-one…

    Funny that all three of them are taking pictures. Aesthetically, I find the “basketball shorts” hideous, but maybe there is a vibe behind them that I’m no longer young enough to catch…

    Don’t know about the basketball shorts.

    Not only do they have the right attitude, but, coincidentally, all of the models are physically beautiful…genetics are a random bitch. They could wear plastic bags, and pull off “a look”.

    third one is cool & well-balanced!
