Shorts, Shorts, Shorts For the Summer
Yes, we all know that for great shorts' legs you need to do lots and lots and lots of SQUATS. I'm not here to tell you that! Come on! You know me better than that!
I believe squats or none we all deserve the right to wear (Jeans) shorts over the summer months. It is hot enough over the summer, so worry not I won't make you sweat any longer. I will just help you get your best look while choosing the shorts you love!
Jeans Shorts - Really? Should I? Is it age appropriate? Day or night? How can I pull the look? Heels or flats? Which one? How? WHAT?!?
So many styles! Cut off shorts, or knee length shorts, or fold over shorts, mid calf, shorty shorts, or WHAT?!? ...
Dress up or casual dress down? pseudo sexy or all the way out there?
I will guide you thru the best secrets to put together the "casual I never put any thought into it" look for the shorts!
So many questions for such an itty bitty piece of clothing right?!?
How to wear your jeans shorts:
Rule number 1 - be comfortable, be you!
Any style goes as long as you are comfortable, cut offs, shorty shorts, or even mid thigh. Just make sure you are comfortable in how you look in them and feel in them, take a look on a 3 way mirror and make sure you cover all the angles you want to cover. Remember if you feel uncomfortable you look uncomfortable! So feel it first!
Rule number 2 - Only 1 statement piece!
You do not want to be a fashion caution sign! Make a statement with one clothing item ONLY.
Think about it, you are already wearing shorts. Your legs are bear, and unless you are a Victoria's Secret Super-model - which most of us are not - you will need a statement piece, besides the shorts of course :). One chance to impress!
If you choose a white T shirt, or just a plain old top, then the killer item would be the killing shoes.
If you decide to go with plain old flats, then, a super sexy revealing top will do the trick.
Get it? the statement piece is the shoes or the top, this way you distract from the shorts to a better fashion piece, because, who wants to do all those squats ?!?
Rule number 3 - Wear a Purse - Why does it always goes back to the purse? LOL
A MUST: Always wear a purse. Weather it's day or night always add that touch - that will make your outfit complete. I know, I can't live without a good purse, clutch, bag, oh well :)
Shorts - any shorts
One statement piece - top or shoes
One plain piece - top or shoes
The Finale - a great purse!
I think now you can have a better idea of how to mix and match your clothing with the jean shorts, or any shorts, and draw attention to what you want!
As you can see above the boring old button down classic shirt is paired with sexy killer shoes, and this works :) - I would add an oversized purse like the Saint Laurent Sac du jour and it is a wrap!
Now enjoy your shorts choice.
