Bottoms Up

Pants, Skirts and Shorts Go Shorter for Summer 2006.

Kelly Monks, Store Manager for Foley and Corrina, located in Manhattan's Lower East Side, details a Bermuda short that her store will be debuting this summer. "It's a straight cut, mid-rise cigarette pant that is cut just above the knee. It's great for either day with flip-flops, or for night with high heels." That's comforting news for many women; six out of ten female respondents told the Monitor that prefer to wear one comfortable outfit for the entire day rather than changing their clothes to fit their varying activities.

As the experts attest, women will have plenty of choices in skirts, pants, leggings and shorts to accommodate any occasion and in the most stylish of ways. Any way you look at it, it's bottoms up!
