Cotton Shorts first appeared on Chictopia's streetstyle gallery in Spring 2009 seen on Berkeley blogger Speedbump. She styled her black H&M cotton shorts with a gray IRO silk printed pixel top, black vintage Kirkland Signature (wtf??) leather cross-body purse, and blue Chie Mihara cream platform shoes. Since then, Cotton Shorts have grown in popularity as bloggers from Helsinki, Los Angeles, and Manila have discovered them. Cotton Shorts are generally seen in casual, chic, and comfortable style. Popular brands of Cotton Shorts are Target, Levi's, Forever 21, Zara, and H&M.
