Shorts are always a big part of your spring wardrobe no matter what your age.
It seems (with good reason) that the younger you are the shorter the shorts…
But…are bermuda shorts right for you? They are shorter than capris but longer than Daisy Dukes, Bermuda Shorts or Walking Shorts, are a great way to show off your legs without showing too much skin. These are no longer reserved for women golfers! Spring 2013 Runways were full of shorts with matching blazers, blouses or little t’s. A stylish must have this season!
If not worn well, shorts can be one of the most difficult basics because they appear to be intimidating. But let me assure you-these are easy to wear (you just may need a few tips). Keep in mind these wardrobe staples can be worn to work, out to dinner or even a Sunday Brunch!
Helpful Short Hints
- Weekend Casual—slouchy boyfriend denim
- Daytime—tailored or slim leg
Think of wearing the tailored or slim leg instead of wearing a pencil skirt
- Fun & Funky—wear high waisted bermudas with a cinched in waist and wide belt (great to show off a small waist and create a smaller hip)
- Flowey or Drapey—will add volume to a slim boyish shape
My favorite is to take a pair of tailored bermuda shorts and pair them with a sky high pair of heels, a dressed up tank and a blazer. This is my personal warm weather go to fashion staple!
Before wearing your shorts to work—think! Are my shorts just as tailored as my trousers? Is my work environment a creative environment that will welcome my individual fashion statement or is it a strict corporate dress code that needs to be followed to the letter of the code.
