Who Wears Short Shorts?

Now that I have a daughter I occasionally catch myself thinking about the ways in which she will seek to destroy our lives as a teenager and it’s not turning up with Darren from the housing commission flats that’s concerning me.  She may only be six months old but it is the following item that keeps me awake at night:

The very thought of parading my own flesh and blood jail-bait around the local shopping mall terrifies me. I have witnessed the swivel of grown men’s necks as a tween trots past with her mother sporting the latest derriere-exposing excuse for denim shorts. I can only pray that by the time she’s thirteen Beyonce and Rhiannon are sick of singing sans-pants and there’s a new trend in town. Preferably one that involves clothes.

For those partial to a pair of shorts there is an alternative.

J Brand Bermuda Shorts

A brand David Jones is stocking quite a lot of. Revolve Clothing also have the range if you’re confident on sizing. Their returns policy is generous.

So there you have it.  You can wear shorts that have an acceptable ratio of denim to front pocket material so try and avoid being a jail-bait enabler this summer.

    The cheeky shorts are so inappropriate for tweens and teens. My girls wear denim shorts, but neither of them would be comfortable in the short shorts.

    Those Bermudas are pretty cool. They’d go really well with the white lace up canvas shoes the young uns wear.

      I think if anyone can get away with denim shorts it’s teen/tweens it’s when they start resembling denim undies!

      Love me some canvas shoes too :)
