What I Wore

Shorts for Every Body Type


Finding a flattering pair of shorts is tricky. Shorts are a summer wardrobe staple. They are great because they offer a lot of styling potential. They can be dressed up or down. There are also so many options to choose from. With that being said, how do you find a pair of shorts right for your body type?

I hate feeling uncomfortable in my clothing. Wearing something that I’m not confident wearing impacts my whole day. This ranges from the constant clothing adjustments, tugging and pulling to find comfort and the mulling over other options I would’ve chose instead.

While skin-tight cutoffs are amazing; they aren’t for everyone. A universally flattering option are loose shorts composed of an unstructured fabric are romantic and a little boho. If you are not interested in tight-fitting shorts then this is the best option for you. When it comes to length I like to choose shorts that hit the midpoint of my thigh. They elongate your leg if you’re not so tall. Also, you’re still showing some skin without feeling self-conscious.

I wore this outfit over the holiday weekend. Temperatures soared into the 90s. The airy fabric of my shorts and lacy top felt me beat the heat. I also felt comfortable and stylish and didn’t for one a minute second guess my outfit choice.
