As the weather heats up, your heavy denim jeans just don’t cut it anymore. But showing a little leg can be a daunting when you’re not sure which pairs of shorts work best for you. Never fear! There’s a pair for every shape—including yours.
Here are three quick tips to remember when shopping for shorts:
- Keep your body in proportion. For a petite, curvy lower half, you’ll want to find shorts that keep your body in proportion. Look for a pair that is mid-rise as they will hit you at the smallest part of your waist & accentuate your curves.
- Keep the shorts simple & streamlined. By sticking to a flat front with no side pockets, the shorts will align themselves with your frame & won’t add too much dimension to your hips & thighs. You should also avoid too much distressing or cargo pockets around the thigh area as they have an eye-catching effect.
- Opt for longer lengths. To downplay thighs, you can always go for a longer hemline—like a bermuda short or capri! Stick to solid hues, or opt for vertical stripes to elongate your legs and downplay thighs.
