How to wear shorts 2009-12-30 13:00:00

Try Before You Buy: Short Shorts

Get your pins ready, ladies! As the weather heats up so do hemlines, but have no fear! Worn with confidence, shorts can be the ultimate go-to wardrobe piece, providing more modesty and comfort than your humble skirt. Take note of our failsafe guide and remember--try before you buy!

Take the walk and bend test! If you feel them ride up as you step and bend forward, chances are they're a size too small. Remember comfort is key.

Steer clear of thin fabrics which crease easily. Silk can look great but be a nightmare to wear so always choose styles with a little weight.

Pockets can be ultra handy but add unnecessary bulk. Choose styles without for a more streamlined look.

Team blousy, oversized shirts with slim-line shorts to balance the proportions, and vice versa.

Look out for scalloped edges, leather styles and pleated waists for a more special, evening look.

Shorts can suit all seasons - wear with sheer tights and ankle boots when the weather cools down, or stick to cute sandals and heels for Summer.

Good Luck!
