THE ONE BEAUTY HACK I SWEAR BY WHEN WEARING SHORTS:

 

I always use the following 2 self-tanning products all over my body which always gives me the perfect summer glow!  I’ve tried TONS of self-tanners in my day and these 2 used together have proven to give me the perfect bronzed tan that doesn’t look orange, streaked,  or over-done.  My skin looks naturally bronzed, most importantly my legs, which is exactly what I want when I’m wearing shorts.  I use the lotion every single day and add the tanning drops in every other day and this gives me the perfect bronzed glow ALL SUMMER LONG!

SHOP THESE TANNING PRODUCTS:

HYDROBOOST BODY BUTTER GRADUAL TAN:

This is a tinted gradual tan body butter that hydrates, firms and nourishes skin while building a streak-free, natural-looking tan for an overall radiant glow. I use this everyday to build up my color and the best part is that it doesn’t smell like your typical self tanner.

TAN-LUXE DROPS:

These drops add an extra layer to my self-tanning regimen that transforms dull, lackluster skin into sun-kissed skin with just a few drops. A little goes a long way with this product so I add these drops to the lotion mentioned every other day. It comes in 2 shades: light/medium and medium/dark which makes it a super versatile product for a whole range of skin tones.

AGOLDE DEE SHORTS:

These super high-rise shorts are hands-down my current favorite denim shorts. I love the high-waist which is super flattering and the slightly longer length definitely elevates the comfort level. If you choose to rock any pair of shorts this summer, these are your best bet.

ALICE & OLIVIA ORANGE BLAZER:

I ALWAYS love adding a third layer when I wear shorts (Hello outfit style formula!) because it elevates the look every time. The stunning bright bold color of this blazer is very on trend for 2022 and adds the perfect casual vibe to this sample look of how to style shorts over 40. I’m wearing an XS in this fantastic statement piece.

AGOLDE PARKER LONG SHORTS:

I just got these AGOLDE Parker shorts and I love them because they have a bit more length. This allows you to wear them cuffed if you would like them shorter or leave them long depending on how much leg you want to show! I’m wearing a size 24 for size reference.

EXPRESS BLUE BLAZER:

This bright blue blazer from Express is another super on trend piece that I am wearing on repeat lately! In this look I’m going along with the style rule of adding that third layer again.
