I hate shorts. And I always have … even when I was young and hot! I just never thought they were flattering on me.
If you’re like me then when the weather gets hot you need some chic alternatives.
Now let me be clear: I don’t like shorts on me. I’ve seen women of all ages look classy and chic in the right pair of shorts! But I find them very unflattering on me. Maybe it’s my pear shape …? Does anyone else feel this way? Or maybe you used to like to wear shorts when you were younger, but now, not so much? Anyway, whatever you’re reason … here’s some alternatives for my fellow short-haters:
Aww … yay for skirts! Knee length, midi, maxi … gauzy, lacy, crochet, jersey knit, poplin … okay, you get the idea. Pick the length and shape most flattering for you or wear a variety.
Crops have gotten a bad name for a long time. And I do realize why: they can shorten the leg line if not thoughtfully styled. You can avoid the unflattering silhouette by choosing crops without a cuff and also by adding a neutral sandal with a little heel. These two tricks will keep you looking leggy, even in cropped pants.
I picked the fabulous Linda of A Labour of Life to showcase this week because she is rocking a fun shorts-alternative, a cute striped knee length skirt! Love it paired with the Converse Chucks and I might copy this look soon!
