To add to the list of campy, ugly-ironic trends (like wearing ugly sneakers with suits or this particular hue) that fashion has been obsessed with lately, we hereby present: jorts. FYI, that’s a portmanteau of ‘jeans’ and ‘shorts’. Before you grimace, they’re nothing like the hideous staple in the wardrobes of the style-ambivalent that you’re probably thinking of right now. In fact, the ‘gram’s most stylish crowd have been populating our feeds with jorts of all sorts — one particular favourite we’ve noticed being light wash cut-offs.
The jean-shorts, when worn with blazers or structured tops, looks surprisingly elevated and sophisticated. We have to admit though, that they’re not the most feminine or sexy, and neither are they the easiest to style — which is why we’ve compiled outfit inspiration above that makes the case for the divisive trend.
