Dear Formal Shorts:
Please go away. No one looks good in you. Save for J. Crew models, Blake Lively, Alexa Chung and maybe Chloe Sevigny.
I don’t care if Jenna puts sequins and a $250 price tag on you – I will not covet you. I barely wear shorts to the gym these days. Do you really think I’m going to be putting on a pair to attend my office Christmas party?
And another thing, it gets cold up here in the Northeast. If you find yourself walking to the T on a cold winter morning in a pair of fancy shorts, opaque tights and oxford shoes, not only will you risk looking like an extra in Oliver Twist, it’s also going to take you until lunch to thaw out your thighs.
