> Shorts are coming up in the world, both in length and style. “Before this year, we hadn’t seen shorts as anything but a functional, casual piece,” says Ritu Gorczyca, co-owner of the trendy Suneri boutique in Somerville. “But now they’re being dressed up and making a fashion statement.” High-waisted silhouettes are top sellers for day-into-evening, working with a tank top or silky blouse and sandals or high heels, Gorczyca says. Chic one-piece rompers are also haute stuff. As seen here around town, people tend to pay more attention when you keep it brief.
