Manhattan Short - Russet



The Manhattan short was a sell-out in the Jewel collection and Kelsey insisted it make a come-back in a new colour for her Kelsey Wells x Cleo Harper collab. Wear this beautiful short with the matching sweater, Brighton. We can’t wait for you to feel this fabric in real life.

This raw cut sporty short is made from that dreamy cloud-like fabric and features a scalloped shape that elongates the leg. Manhattan is ideal when you want to look put-together but oh-so comfortable. Classic and simple with signature gold hardware.

Notes from Kelsey:

"I had to do it— so unique in both fit and feel. My go-to shorts for walking, hiking, or just straight chillin. Pair with the Vitality Tank and Manhattan Sweater of the same hue for a look to remember."

Kelsey wears S, stay true to size.

Customer reviews:

“I recently went to Queensland and took only your line (legit the only other thing was my socks and undies, as far as clothing goes I live in your label!) and my sisters (all 5 of them) loved my Brighton jumper, best material hands down and so warm! Not to mention the shorts, the leggings, the crops, the mesh long sleeve tops ... #cleosessed. Love your work!” - Deb

“Just wanted to say I received my order and for a first time buyer I was blown away with the fabrics! So beautiful! The items I sought sizing advice on was spot on and I’m so glad you gave it to me as they were the perfect fit. I appreciate how predictable your sizing seems to be. Thanks so much for the wonderful customer service.” - Fiona


“I’ve discovered Cleo Harper and like many others just love! Looking forward to more active pieces to wear & layer. I’m so enjoying my love of this fabulous brand and being part of the #CleoFam!" Donna


“Actually just wanted to say how obsessed I am with my CH pieces! Honestly can’t compliment the brand enough! From the quality to the friendly service you ladies are amazing! I’m pretty sure I’m never buying another brand of activewear again. Also sure I’ve converted everyone at my gym as well :) I wasn’t too sure how it would hold up as I do strongwoman training, but the support and comfort is next level! Just wanted to let you know!" Renae
