I hate to be the bearer of bad news as we head to the hot season, but most women do not look good in shorts. As I often say, why do you want two “a..es” when one is plenty enough. Shorts accentuate the backside of women in a way they do not with men. So here are a few dos and don’ts on shorts.
Do: Wear neutral colors. If shorts are the only way to go for certain activities, go with blue, khaki or off-white.
Don’t: Go extreme with cut-off jeans as in the American Eagle design with the pockets drooping down in front and silly distress holes.
Don’t: Wear shorts with cuffs, they only accent the thigh.
Do: Wear a belt with shorts. Gives them a nice sophisticated look even over a T-shirt.
Don’t: wear anything gathered at the waist – no drawstrings even if the fabric is really lightweight.
Do: Consider a jeans skirt as an alternative. Nordstrom’s has a variety from a mini by Rag & Bone @ $225.00 to a Levi’s @ $68.00. They even have a cute Plus Size by JUNAROSE @ $79.00.
