If you've got it, flaunt it. Are you one of those naturally slender girls who's got legs for days? Take a cue from Nicole Richie and show off what you're working with in a pair of super trendy high-waisted short shorts. As Ms. Richie shows us in this recent pic from the Disney Couture launch party (left), by pairing this high fashion retro shorts silhouette with a basic black tank and simple peep-toe pumps you can achieve a look that is simply fabulous.

Want to steal Nicole Richie's uber-trendy high-waisted shorts look? Her pants pick is a pair of the brand new "Hulsey Park" high waisted shorts from stylish denim label Sass & Bide. These spankin' new shorts boast a whopping 9" rise, but a super tiny 2.5" inseam. This crazy proportion is not for the feint of heart, but it will shine a huge spotlight on your long, luscious legs.

Here's a helpful hint free of charge. As with any obviously retro re-creation, if you are old enough to have worn high-waisted shorts the first time around-- in the '70s and '80s-- you are banned from wearing them this time around. That is, unless you enjoy looking like you are desperately trying to re-live your youth. Some retro looks really are best left to the barely post-pubescent.
