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.
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!
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.
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 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…
