In summer, do you find yourself accidentally hiding your thick thighs, cellulite, and buttocks? What’s important on a hot day is that you feel good about yourself, not that you get steamed up from piling on clothes unnecessarily because you’re worried about what others will think. Therefore, don’t be afraid to wear fashionable shorts. Here’s a look at what’s popular this year and how to wear them!
Shorts and Long Combinations
The immediate choice of tops to wear with shorts is a sleeveless shirt. But what about a long-sleeved blouse? If you roll up the sleeves, it will have a more summery look, and you won’t have to worry about the heat.
If you want to look more dressed up, you can also wear a linen or denim jacket over the pair of shorts. You can also roll up the sleeves for a summer look.
Choose the Appropriate Length
Unlike the style you choose, there is not much room for debate about length. If it’s too short, you’ll be embarrassed. If it’s too long, you’ll look like a real fashion victim. The right size lies in the middle. The leg of the shorts should be a few inches above the knee and not in the middle of the thigh. The solution to too-long shorts is simple: roll them up. Trendy and very effective!
Consider Your Body Size and Skin Color
An important rule that always applies is to dress as you are, not as you want to be. If something doesn’t fit you, don’t do it. In the case of shorts, you have to take into account the shape of your legs.
Darker colors are better if you have thick thighs because they do not create shadows. A more pronounced print can hide thin legs. Are you the lucky one with something in the middle? Then you may want to experiment with colors and patterns that work for you. Bright colors will also look good on people with dark skin tones, while neutral colors will suit those with a light skin tone.
Meet your ideal partner for work. Choose luxurious materials such as leather or summer wool to add a touch of elegance to your outfit. These shorts have a classic straight cut, so they look great on people with hourglass figures as they accentuate their curves. Pair them with a puff-sleeved blouse for a feminine touch or a blazer and matching belt for a chic menswear vibe.
Choose a simple white blouse or button-down for the top to emphasize high-waisted shorts. For instance, you can tuck in your favorite graphic t-shirt with the high-waisted shorts for a cuter and more casual look. A classic color palette, such as black and white, is easiest to accentuate this look.
You can wear linen shorts in various ways, but mixing textures is what creates the best outfits. Choose a light jumper or a romantic Victorian lace top for contrast. Add a linen blazer in the same color for a clean look for work or other formal occasions.
Dress up low-rise shorts with an oversized collared blouse (tucked in, of course), or go more casual with a crop top. Drop-waist shorts are often made of poplin or linen, which are very comfortable. High-neck tops also look good with this style of shorts.
Biker shorts look great with a graphic T-shirt or sweatshirt for a casual and athletic look. If you want a more dressed-up look, you can pair them with a blazer belted at the waist. Add a layered gold chain or box purse to make the biker shorts more stylish, and you’re all set!
It all comes down to wearing shorts that you feel comfortable in. Updating your wardrobe from time to time can help you look modern and stylish!
