Knee Skimming shorts are this summer’s top trend on the runway. The trendy shorts are knee length and tailored slim without a turn up and most of them are pressed with a crease or silk is added on as a trim. Shorts of this length are flattering to anyone. They are one of the most wearable and versatile trends of the season. Whether you opt for a design or a more tailored look, make sure they just skim your knee to be on-trend. When it comes to color, go for navy, which is a fail-safe option that always looks good. Celebrity, Pharrell Williams was also seen sporting this trend at the Oscars in March. Knee-skimming shorts take a lot of guts and style to wear. Designers like Prada and Gucci brought back short-shorts in a range of colors and prints. Coach, Kenzo, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten also had their models rock these shorts on the runway. Paris and Milan’s fashion weeks both featured male models sporting above-the-knee shorts. The perception of above-the-knee shorts “as being only for young boys,” has taken several decades to change and now the trend is in for all age groups.
