Red Carpet Trend: Shorts

Three stars, one awards show—one triumphant trend.

At Nickelodeon's 27th Annual Kids Choice Awards, the (sartorial) winners of the night were the A-listers who emerged, leggy stems and all, in one of this season's major trends: the dressy short. Amid the usual parade of flirty frocks (and the occasional pant), the crop of crops that stole the spotlight—and our hearts—ran from edgy and moody to crisp and clean.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting had one foot in each season, sporting moody leather-trimmed Rebecca Minkoff shorts, topping off her look with a matching jacket, Rona Pfeiffer jewelry and chunky BCBG Max Azria heels. Selena Gomez, on the other hand, embraced spring all the way in Dolce & Gabbana separates that boasted sunny yellow accents. And Eva Longoria opted out of color, looking white-hot in a crisp Sass & Bide playsuit, complete with hand beading and rope embroidery.

Dressy shorts ruled the red carpet over the weekend, and we predict we won't be seeing the last of 'em. Integrate this season's must-have staple into your outfit rotation starting with our shopping picks.
