When it comes to shorts, not so many ladies are confident enough to pull them. From the very short hot pants to the normal knee length shorts, dressing in this attire can be challenging especially when you don’t fancy showing off your legs.
However, depending on whether you are rocking denim, leather or cotton shorts, this outfit can be quite classy depending on how you style it. If you are still in doubt, here are some outfit ideas and tips to help you rock your pair of shorts like a pro:
- Pair it with T-shirts
When in doubt always match your shorts with a T-shirt. Preferably go for the large ones that you can tuck in or side tuck. When it comes to dressing in a pair of shorts, it is all about balancing your proportions.
When the bottoms are small, always try to make the top larger. Normally, this outfit looks really nice when matched with a pair of sneakers but some low cut boots will do too.
- Match it with a shirt
When it comes to dressing in shorts it’s all about balancing proportions and there is no better way of doing this than matching it with a shirt.
Shirts come in a wide variety and depending on how you want to style your outfit, you can either go with a tuck or without. If you decide to go for a classier look you can add an accessory like a belt to the final look.
- Try a crop top
Matching your pair of shorts with a crop top can be quite daring but it doesn’t have to be raunchy. You can rock a crop top look when you are working with a high waist short, this way a good part of your waist skin stays covered.
