How to wear shorts – short and sweet!

Shorts are here to stay

My blog this week is all about my favourite item of clothing when it comes to my summer wardrobe: SHORTS.

So I will keep it short and sweet this week (ha ha).

Shorts can look great on most of us, as long as we get the length of the shorts right in proportion to our legs and the correct size. I’m not really keen on any that come with elasticated waistbands unless you are going to a smorgasbord all you can eat buffet!   They can look so unflattering with no waistband to give them shape.

Saying that, my white leather One Teaspoon shorts (as shown in one of my blog photos) come with an elastic waistband.  But that’s ok, because the style – casual/sporty suits this type of band and of course no one needs to know, unless I tell them!

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

  1. I think it helps if you have legs like yours!! In my case, I wear shorts in colder weather over tights with knee high boots, and in summer only when I have been to Beauty on the Strand to get my fake tan!

  2. It is amazing how much better we all look with a little bit of fake tan or natural tan. Like you, I also wear shorts in winter, with socks and boots.

    Elasticised shorts are best in sportswear, I reckon – unless, like your leather shorts, they are accessorised perfectly with the right top and belt! A definite summer staple in my wardrobe – shorts that is, not elasticised waists!! 😄

  4. Shorts are definetly the ‘go to’ this summer with this amazing weather, gorgeous!

    • I think sportswear is the only place for elasticated shorts I agree DW. I am wearing shorts basically every day at the moment, and unfortunately even my leather ones seem a bit too hot at the moment. Glad to see no elasticated shorts have managed to find their way into your wardrobe. Never say never I say .. our time may come. xx

        Yeah,it’s very hot here in Brisbane too – even shorts don’t feel comfortable with temps in the mid 30’s with 80% humidity – but my shorts look very cool in the aircon!

    • Yes my friend – hope you have some great shorts for walking the dog xx

    Just as well, I have to walk a neighbour’s dog for the next month while she’s in China! Who said I was a cat person!!
