Every now and then a seasonal trend comes along that I just don't get and/or care for. This spring's case in point - the pocket exposed cutoff shorts.
Back in the day when I would craft my own denim cutoffs, if the pockets were hanging out past the hem it meant oops, my bad, I cut them too short. Today if you see a pocket hanging out of a pair of daisy dukes, it's totally purposeful.
Don't get me wrong, I love the look of a good pair of distressed denim shorts, but this looks straight up awkward to me, like this chick has a couple of accidental streams of toilet paper sticking out both sides of her pants. And what if you carry lots of stuff in your pockets? Talk about bulky. Not to mention it's a huge welcome sign for pickpockets: Hey dude, want a free iPhone4? Just rip out my visible quad sacks!
Maybe I'm too old. Maybe I'm too square, but I honestly wouldn't be caught dead sporting this style gimmick that seems like the female equivalent of those dudes who wear low rider jeans that bare their entire boxer'ed behind.
I've got one hand in my covered pocket and the other one is giving a peace sign.
