Short Shorts: Long on Style

by Andrea Goodwin, associate editor (

Summer is finally here and our favorite “it girls" are showing some skin. Stars like Vanessa Minnillo and Tori Spelling recently have been seen sporting The Manhattan Short by David Park. These beautifully tailored shorts in fine wool and stretch sateen are on BeansTalk’s must-have list this season. Moreover, these sexy and sophisticated shorts come complete with single welt pockets, pleated cuffs and a vintage accent button, signature to all Park Clothing. The Manhattan Short is made in two fabrics: super 120 Merino Wool, available this season in chocolate pinstripe, red pinstripe, blue windowpane, tan, and black, and Silk Sateen available this season in black, mocha, apple, and red.

We think that Vanessa has the perfect body to pull off the short shorts with high heels look. Girl, if you can get away with it, meaning you have no dimples or bulges anywhere, do it. We also salute Tori Spelling for toning up those post-pregnancy abs. Not a stretch mark in sight.

Retail: $132.00 -- $165.00
