Okay, ladies, we've got to issue a statement on this exposed-pocket trend, and Ashley Tisdale is just going to have to be the sartorial martyr.
The High School Musical star rocked a pair of denim cutoffs -- a summer style staple -- this weekend while performing at The Grove in Los Angeles. And even as micro as those shorts were, her look would've been perfectly fine if it weren't for the unfortunate flashing of those bright white pockets.
We've seen peek-a-boo flashes of pocket lining under the short-shorts of style icon Kate Moss, but Tisdale's version is so obvious it skews tacky -- not to mention the very un-rock-and-roll, never-been-worn quality of her pristine denim.
We'd get that her legs are super fit and sexy and that her shorts are super short without the extra two inches of fabric dangling down. So why not chop those pockets off?! Especially since we're pretty sure she's not actually planning (or able) to use them.
To see if other stars nailed or failed the summer look, check out the below pics.
