Sexy, Sassy Shorts for Your Body Type
Shorts are summer’s best friend, and they can be yours too!
It doesn’t matter if you’re as tall as Pippa Middleton, petite as Reese Witherspoon or blessed like Kim Kardashian, there are fabulous shorts for your body type. We’ve been seeing shorts on the red carpet. Take a cue and wear a pair on your next date — you can dress them up with a cropped jacket, heels and dressy accessories. Unless you’re working in a creative field, shorts are still not work appropriate for an office.
Take a look at our picks. We even found Pippa’s shorts!
Reese Witherspoon never lets shorts overwhelm her. Stick with shorts that are, well, short. They’ll create the illusion of a longer leg. Keep in mind that if you wear a long short, it will make you appear more petite than you are. If you want to add a little height, look for wedges; they’ll add an inch or two, but will keep with the relaxed look of the short.
