A wardrobe staple that every woman should own is a chic pair of cut-offs. These are by far the best fitting denim shorts I have ever owned! The length is perfect – not too short or too long, although if you would like to wear them shorter you can cuff the bottom. I purchased them at Shopbop, they are by Mother Denim, one of my favorite denim lines! The rise is perfect too, a bit on the high rise side, but too high. I got a size 27 because I like my shorts to run a bit on the bigger side.
5 RULES TO FOLLOW WHEN WEARING SHORTS:
1.) WEAR THEM A BIT OVER-SIZED: There is nothing worse than when I see someone, especially a middle aged woman, wearing shorts that are too short or too tight – one of my fashion pet-peves! If you want to add a few pounds to your frame…then wear your shorts tight, otherwise, to look slimmer wear them slightly over-sized.
2.) MAKE SURE THEY ARE LONG ENOUGH: Mid to upper thigh is a good rule of thumb, you want your legs to look long and slim and the mid thigh length will do just that. I realize everyone’s different, so depending on your age and frame you might want to wear them a bit longer.
3.) PAIR THEM WITH AN OVERSIZED TOP: This will create balance in your look. You don’t want everything on your body to be form fitting, so to give the illusion of your bottom half looking slimmer opt for an over-sized button down or boho blouse. I always like to tuck just the front in to accentuate my waist a bit.
4.) PAIR WITH A HEEL OR WEDGE: This will dress up your look and make your legs appear longer and slimmer. I almost always wear a heel or wedge and that’s one of the reasons why. The other reason…I feel more confident and more myself when I have heels on. They really take any look to the next level!
5.) — USE CHARLOTTE TILBURY’S SUPER MODEL BODY SLIMMING CREAM – This cream is so AMAZING!! It’s like a bronzing lotion that you put on your entire body and it gives you this gorgeous bronze glow!! It has no scent and doesn’t rub off on your clothes – I use it all over my legs anytime I’m wearing shorts or a dress or skirt. It’s hands down the best bronzing lotion I have ever used!!
