It's Heating Up!
writes, "We have waited long enough and summer is finally here. So, now that those legs have a little color you can throw on a great pair of shorts with your favorite top and head out the door. No? You hate your legs? They are too short? Too long? Freckled? Fat? Knobby knees? We all have something we are worried about, but this season is a season for shorts. They offer great versatility, will help you beat the heat and are a fun way to get in on the trend."
Here’s how to do it:
Proportion is key. Full through the hip? A short that is shorter and full through the leg is your best bet. Full through the middle and trim through the hip? A short with a trim leg is best. So, you aren't comfortable with a shorter short or a slim leg short? Don't worry, there is another option. A low-waist Bermuda that hits above the knee is an easy style that works great on ALL body types.

Think opposite. If you are wearing a shorter, fuller short, pair them with a top that has a trim fit. That way you are giving your body proportion. For those gals in a short with a trimmer leg, you'll look great in a top that has some room. A slim Bermuda short with a tunic or button front menswear style works great.

Length? There is no age limit on length. If you are comfortable in a shorter short and the look works on your body type then by all means...do it! This doesn't mean sporting a bootie short in the grocery store. That, my friend, is a style issue. Just because you think you can doesn't mean you should.

There are so many great looks you can create with shorts, no matter what length or style looks best on you. You can create a more tailored look by adding a jacket and heels. You can create a look for date night by wearing a high platform or wedge with a shoulder-baring top. Or you can keep it casual with a flat sandal.

We all know how to slip on our shorts with a tee and flip flops, but challenge yourself this summer by re-defining how you wear shorts. Play around with the proportions, put on a pair of wedge sandals with a heel, slip on your shorts with a jacket for that dinner date, dress them up, wear them to work (a long Bermuda) with a tailored top. You'll look so great you'll forget about why you were afraid to wear them in the first place!
