Surprisingly, I was inspired by Olivia Harrison; while I really like some of her looks, I don't dress like her in the slightest, but she's the most prominent person to me who's sported these shorts.
Nevertheless, I'm finding them very useful for layering under shorter dresses and skirts, as an extra precaution to preserve my modesty. Ironically, I had my doubts when thinking about what to wear them with, in case they would be mistaken for long underwear, which is not that modest... but but that's just me being weird, I hope.
Actually, I originally made them to go with the dress Ginge got me for my birthday, as it's quite short. I also recently discovered that it can be layered with my strappy black vest to make the neckline comfortably higher. The detail of the lace poking out the bottom of the dress is very pleasing, but I haven't got round to shooting it yet.
