Summer is right around the corner and with being home so much I am enjoying getting a little sun in my evenings! As you all know I am a major fashionista, I am now getting creative and using my walking time as an excuse to not look so….homely! With that being said I am pulling out my summer tops and my cutest shorts. Below I have featured all of my favorites and most are budget-friendly!

Denim Shorts + How to Wear

Wearing shorts or denim shorts does not have to be as stressful as we make it. The right length for your body is the key here! I have a few tips for what I find helps me to look and feel my best in my shorts.

Choose The Right Length

You don’t have to be stuck wearing long baggy maw maw pants if you’re over 50! I will say, length is crucial when choosing the type of shorts that will look best. The medium and longer-length shorts are more flattering and slimming. I love the 7″ length chino shorts that J Crew has in their shorts lineup. They are hit the pretty part of the thigh, but they also do longer shorts.

Pair Them Properly

The way you pair your shorts can determine whether you look classy or trashy. Choose the right top to go with your shorts. Avoid short, skimpy tops and go for something that offers a little more coverage, the tops above are perfect to rock with your shorts.

Avoid Shorts That Are Too Tight

Ladies, the same goes for shorts that go for all fashion. Avoid wearing them too tight!! Pick a loose-fitting style that is more forgiving around your thighs which may have lost a little bit of their youthful elasticity. We are trying to look and feel our best, but forcing our bodies into certain short styles is not going to do the trick!

Slim Down Shorts

A trick I have learned for looking slimmer is to add a pretty heeled sandal or small wedge! Just a small heel will do the trick. Everyone has a personal preference and I personally do not think wearing a huge wedge or heel while in short shorts is very ladylike! So keep in mind the length of your shorts when you are pairing your shoes…and to each their own!!
