Trend Watch - Micro Shorts
Micro, itsy bitsy short shorts are a one of summer's big trends. Trendsetting celebs like Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson, Kate Moss and Fergie are taking every opportunity to show off their pins (and to make us jealous). I have never been a big fan of mini shorts as they can either make you look amazing or make you look like a sl*t. However, I am changing my mind after seeing these celebs pull them off stylishly.
If you have mile-long legs, a pair has your name on it. If you dont, there are always bermuda shorts.Do ::
Wear your shorts with a pair of heels to stretch your figure.
Get a linen, cotton or any relaxed fabirc as synthetics can make you look larger than you are and they are not summer appropriate.
Avoid high-waisted shorts no matter how trendy they are if you are pear shaped.
Wear your shorts with a pair of nude shoes for a leg-lenghening look.
Wear tunics with your shorts ala Nicole Richie.Don't ::
Buy anything that makes you are not sure of. You will never wear it.
Go for really tiny shorts if you have shorter legs. Only Kate Moss' legs can pull them off.
Wear three-quarter length boots with shorts – they'll 'chop' up the leg.
Dont go skimpy on top. The shorts are sexy enough, so cover up your top half with some contrasting layers or a floaty top.
Get too wacky. Keep things simple – the shorts are enough of a statement.
