Clothing Tips For Wearing Short Shorts

Published at 03/10/2012 16:37:46


Summer is just around the corner and that means it is almost time to break out the summer wardrobe. At the top of the must-have list of clothing are shorts. Shorts are comfortable and perfect for lazy summer days. Of course, as with all clothing, shorts do require some helpful tips so both the shorts and the person wearing them can look great. This is especially true for those who enjoy short shorts.

Step 1

Every piece of clothing is not perfect for every body. Certain items do not do the wearer justice, and in the world of clothing, shorts are one of the items that may not look best on everyone. That is not to say that some people will have to swelter in long pants all summer, just that some should avoid short shorts. If you are less than happy with your thighs or have some problem areas, it is best to start working on them well in advance of the summer season. If your legs still need some work, wear a longer pair of shorts. You can still look great in a pair with a bit of a longer length.

Step 2

Sunless tanner and short shorts go together. Unlike other pieces of clothing, shorts leave most of your legs on display. Since many other clothing pieces cover your legs, legs may be in need of some color. Sunless tanner on your legs before going out in shorts will make your legs look better and even thinner. While you are working on tan legs, also remember that smooth legs are a must. Moisturize each and every day to keep legs looking smooth and sleek.

Step 3

Choose the right shoes. All clothing, shorts included have shoes that work best with it. With short shorts, the type of shoe is a heel, a wedge also looks great. Pairing your shorts with a high heel or wedge will give you a longer, leaner look. You legs wiill look even more fabulous with the right shoes. It is a good idea to try shoes on while wearing your shorts. This will help you to choose the best pair for the outfit.

Step 4

Find a wonderful summer top to pair with your short shorts. When choosing your outfit for the day, shorts is not the only item on the list. You will also need a top. With the top, you have a couple of choices. If you want to look smaller instantly, choose a loose, flowing top. If you would rather, a form fitting one goes equally well with shorts, clothing tops can be mixed and matched depending on your mood.

Step 5

Accessorize. Clothing, shorts, tops and shoes are not the end when it comes to getting dressed for a fun summer day. Accessories are a must. Choose over-sized earrings, bangles or necklaces to make a statement. Summer is the time for fun. Let your accessories show off your unique sense of style. Bright colors and fun pieces fit in well with the summer vibe. They also go great with summer clothing, short shorts included.


Shorts come in several lengths, choose the hem length that looks best on you. This is true no matter what is in style for the season. It is best to wear something that you are comfortable with and something that looks good. Do not let current trends dictate what you wear. If you do not feel your best in something, skip the trend and go with what works.
