The message for summer is simple: Pants, who needs ’em? Designers from New York to Paris kept it short and sweet this season with a slew of above-the-knee options that ranged from denim daywear at Anna Sui to business casual Bermudas at Christian Dior. Shorts were so prominent on the ready-to-wear runways that they even snuck into wedding attire. J.Crew‘s Spring 2015 bridal collection included a pair of $450 ivory shorts inspired by the destination bride. Consider winter history.
