Hmmmm....runners around here may wear short shorts but they are not tight and they don't wear them with tall, white tube socks.

True. They usually wear the ones similar to what Richard Simmons is always wearing and with regular length socks.

I'm glad to hear that you're happy in your skin, but it's cool to hear that you once enjoyed this look as well.

It's so hot where I live that if I wear full-length shirts during the summertime, I'll be sweating up a storm before I know it.

There was a woman walking around my grocery store on Saturday with crispy 80s-style 3-inch tall bangs and a curly perm. I was kind of agog. Her husband looked relatively normal, but you'd hope someone would pull her aside and break it to her that the 80s have been over for a while.

There was a vintage (from the Tudor Era) style that came into vogue for a season; the pirate shirt. In particular, this general idea:

Pirate Shirts, Pirate Costumes & Clothing

For those who don't want to link - it's a loose-fitted pull-over shirt. It has a LOW v-neck framed with a set of ruffles that goes up from the bottom of the V around the neck (instead of a standard collar), and the V is tied with a lace. The sleeves billow out, and are gathered at the wrist with matching ruffle. The shirt is long; over the hip, so it can be belted and worn as a tunic, or tucked in.

Mine were all made out of silk, in jewel-tones. I'd pair them with black jeans, and a fitted brocade vest. I'd pull the ruffles out so they'd drape over the neckline of the vest and run down the front. I usually wore the shirt loose, not tucked in, so it'd spill out under the vest at the bottom. Sometimes I'd tuck it in. I still have two of them; one in a garnet red, the other in emerald green. They have moth holes in them now but a vest covers the holes so I wear them anyway

Thanks for the memories, re: tube socks. We used to wear them in Junior High (ie Middle School) gym.

I live in FL and wear mainly capris when going out. When traveling out of state, I still wear them but feel terribly out of fashion then, even though they are common fare in FL.
