Before getting started please allow me to have a moment to say that I am very, very sorry for getting the annoying 50’s song Short Shorts stuck in your head, it drives me crazy too. Now, moving on…
With the fast approaching summer you are more than likely prepping to get into shorts-mode, and these summer-essential bottoms are shorter than ever this season. Bermuda’s and capris have lost most of their charm and are sitting this one out for the time being (but don’t worry, they’ll be back). This year the craze is showing some skin, and it’s spreading like wildfire. It seems that 2016 summer fashion is all about pushing the limit and revealing as much leg as humanly possible, without breaking the law when in public. But unfortunately, this trend may be a little too bold for those who are timid about showing off their legs or embarrassed about the ultra pale skin that they developed over the winter and may not feel ready to jump head first into this look just yet. Believe it or not though, there really is nothing to fear because there are plenty of stylish ways to wear short shorts without these issues having to be a problem.
Four Stylish Ways To Wear Short Shorts
Blast From The Past
The shorts over tights look that was birthed in the first part of the 90’s has been reappearing, but this time, it’s a little more refined. With the world’s renewed love for leggings still going strong, it’s not unusual to spot the combination of short shorts and leggings (or footless tights), and the results are surprisingly lovely to say the least. Ultra short shorts over liquid leggings can be the perfect ensemble for a night on the-the town and dancing, and they even look amazing with heels. With the shorts/leggings look in the room the glitzy mini skirts are going to have their work cut out for them when competing for attention, and the party dress is going to have no other choice but to step aside. White shorts over opaque black leggings and pointed-toe flats can convert the trend into work appropriate attire. The layering of shorts and leggings also opens the door to a vast amount of ways to play with color and pattern, making for a thoroughly stylish way to wear short shorts.
