I just cannot like this look. It's so cheap looking. :/

i like exposed pockets but not the super-short look, where the pockets have more fabric than the actual pants. that just looks terrible.

I was actually going to buy a pair...until I saw the back. I mean, I just don't need my butt cheeks all out there for the world to see. I think that a shirt with a long back would be nice with a pair that aren't too short. I also think the tights are a great idea.

no fashion at all, just a little skanky

This look has been around for a couple years now and i'm just not convinced it is anything but tacky. Although, I must admit that Vagabond looks amazingly chic (as always).

I think they can cross the "tacky" line quick. As long as it's a peek of pocket and not the whole darn thing, I think it looks great :)

i love the shorts and tights look, but the exposed pockets are a no-go in my opinion.

I definitely agree that its all about how they're worn. What you decide to wear with the shorts and how short they are, are major contributing factors in regards to whether you look like a 'starlet or streetwalker'.

I totally agree with your tips- if you go short on the bottom keep some skin hidden on top, leave some for the imagination haha
