DALLAS, Jul 30, 2009 / FW/ — Shorts galore present a fresh new trend for Fall. They are an item intended to dress up an outfit for work or evening.

They provide a new alternative to the skirt, and they are a replacement for the trousers when paired with tights.

 Long or short, high waisted or low: they all work for this fall.

Phillip Lim and Walter show fabulous leather shorts with romantic blouses.

Diane von Furstenberg and Nanette Lepore include more slouchy ones in their collection.

Go against your instincts to put your shorts away with summer; they have been approved for a new season.

Wear them for winter; keep it short.
