The Shorts...(By Alia Al Monla)

Sun,Apr 12, 2015


Shorts are great. They are practical, so, why is it that when it comes to buying shorts we struggle? Shorts are probably one of the most difficult pieces of clothing to choose because you have to get the style, cut and colour absolutely right.
 
So, to help you get the best shorts for your shape, see our tips below:
 
The main things to look out for are: FABRIC, CUT, LENGTH, DETAIL.
 
FABRIC: As a general rule, fuller figures should choose softer fabrics that will fit nicely over their curves.
 
CUT:  Very tailored, structured cuts will look best on slimmer, rectangle or neat hourglass figures. Soft tailored shorts are probably the most flattering for most people.
 
LENGTH: Short shorts are fine for most people on the beach, but beyond the seaside, they should be left to those in their teens and early twenties only.
If you have short legs, make sure you wear an open-toed sandal to elongate your legs in your shorts.
 
DETAIL: If you are slim then details on your shorts will add volume and give the illusion of more shape. Pockets, buttons, zips, embellishment or pattern on your shorts is good for you.  
 
Denim: Denim shorts never really go out of style and they are a big trend this summer. Curvy bodies need to choose soft denim in a darker shade, the slim bodies can have the lighter one even with stiff fabrics... Denim shorts often have pockets, buttons, zips or stud detail, so again, think about how much you can get away with.
 
Colour: if you have a fuller figure, go for a simple style with no detail at a flattering length and in a dark shade from your colour palette.
