With the weather in the 80’s lately I’ve been on the hunt for some new shorts. The good news is the HUGE variety out there – from fun prints, stripes, eyelet and lace, to tailored pairs, the style options are endless. The bad news – this can be a little overwhelming!
A few tips:
If You’re Curvy:
Longer boyfriend shorts are your friend. Try for a pair that are relaxed and streamlined, and tuck in your top to add definition to your waist
If You’re Petite:
If you feel comfortable, go for real shorty-shorts to elongate your legs, or opt for a high waisted pair with vertical stripes -both will add inches to your frame
If You’re Super Slim/Have Long Legs:
Create curves and a defined waistline with shape-making pleated shorts (#4). The paper-bag-waist cinchis especially on-trend (and slimming). And of course, lucky for you ladies, you can also wear really short shorts- – you’ve got the legs – show them off!
Shorts that Work on Everyone:
Mid-length shorts work on everyone. Try for a pair that hits right at the middle of your thigh (the narrowest part), and be wary of a large cuff, which can add width.
Hope that helps with your shorts shopping! Here are a variety of shorts I found at great prices. Try each type on and find what works for you – from 3-4″ inseam, to 6″ inseam all the way to the longer bermuda shorts! (Tip: bermuda shorts look best when they have a more fitted look, as opposed to loose and baggy).
