Who Wears Short Shorts?!

Who Wears Short Shorts?!

I don’t know about you, but I love a sassy pair of cutoff shorts…the only problem {for me} is that I don’t necessarily want all the booty cheek exposure that comes along with the fit! I don’t necessarily consider myself modest in dressing, but as a Mama and Wife I can’t be out in the streets exposing all my goods ya know!! 😉

My favorite solution to rocking this look “modestly” is to pair the shorts up with a flowy high-low top. The movement of the top adds a cool element to the look AND keeps the cheeks covered…#winning! This style of top is also great with cropped, cuffed or cutoff skinny jeans. I’ve linked up some fab Forever21 high-low tops later in this post for you to shop too!PSX_20170730_200442Another style tip when it comes to shorts is to shop according to your best {and least favorite} leg attributes. For example, if you have great calves but your full-figured hips & thighs are a little too much awesome sauce for the public {they ain’t ready girl!}, opt for a distressed pair of bermuda shorts. If you were blessed with shorter legs like me {wahhh! *rolls eyes*} shop for the short shorts to lengthen those stems. Also, if you have killer legs but struggle with pesky cellulite, go for the 5″ chino shorts that give just a little more upper leg coverage than the norm and won’t ride up in the back! Processed with VSCO with s1 presetProcessed with VSCO with s1 preset
