Not only is the Bernhard Willhelm 'half-pant' part shorts and part pants, but the design also fuses an army print and a blue-and-white pinstripe in a military-meets-businesswoman collaboration. Designer Bernhard Willhelm is known for breaking fashion don'ts, and the half-pant is no exception.

From the Bernhard Willhelm Spring/Summer 2010 collection, this confused bottom is not for the faint-hearted. It'll take an arm and a leg to pull this playful half-pant style off.

Implications - This hybrid design would be perfect for those in between seasons where I simply cannot make the decision between pants, skirts or shorts. The weather seems to change on a dime, and as such, these mixed print half-pants would be the ultimate solution!
