Shorts have long been relegated to daywear status, appropriate only for picnics, barbecues and picking the kids up from soccer. But this season, thanks to many designer versions, New York’s chicest women have trotted out the abbreviated trend when stepping out for evening affairs. Whether pairing lean, black twill bermudas with a sheer, dressy blouse or wider-leg denim culottes with a neat tuxedo top, these women demonstrate that shorts that hover around the knee accessorized with high-heeled sandals can be a sophisticated alternative to cocktail frocks and swirly skirts.
