Short Shorts Are Making A Comeback.

The is a new fashion trend hitting the high street and its short shorts, you may have seen the Cristiano Ronaldo’s of the world sporting them in the World Cup.

But major designers including Prada and high-street brands such as Topman are making shorts that show the male leg in all its glory. 

Prada’s collection, shown in Milan, featured 52 looks, 23 of which featured the trend. On the high street, Topman also reported a hike in sales of shorter-length shorts, particularly in swimwear.

Prada’s shorts come in two lengths: 28cm (11in) for the swimming shorts, which feature an elastic belt, while the tailored shorts clock in at a tiny 30cm.

Adrian Clark, the style director of Shortlist magazine, believes Love Island has contributed to the trend. “This show has had so much influence – it actually caused white jeans to sell out entirely last summer on the high street.

“For all its moralistic faults, though, it has encouraged men to feel comfortable to show off a bit,” he says. “Of course, I’m not attributing all of the success of the short short on that – but I do think it’s adding to the thigh-high phenomenon.”

Even if you can escape Love Island on TV, it can still creep into your wardrobe if you aren’t careful.

I don’t know about you but I won’t be wearing short shorts anytime soon.
