Learn how to shop and choose what the best type of denim shorts would be, according to the shape of your body. Both curvy and straight bottom ladies can choose different kinds of cuts of their shorts, to make their legs and over all style more flattering at the same time as comfortable.
Here are a couple of tips on choosing and wearing denim shorts for women. One of the key things to think about when you're choosing shorts, first of all, is whether you are curvy or not on the bottom half or whether you're straight on the bottom half. And what I mean by curvy is if you've got some curve in the hips and bottom, you would choose a certain type of shorts.
Whether if you're much more boyish on the lower body, straight hips, flat bottom, it'd be different type of shorts that suit you. So if we start off with curvy bottom, if we're going for shorts, the key thing to look for if you've got curvy lower body are two thing. First of all, we always want the short to end at a flattering part of the leg.
So bearing in mind, that's usually right above the knee. If you've got fabulous legs, you may take the length up much higher, even if you are curvy on the lower half. But just bear in mind, that's generally right above the knee, that's the right place for the short to end.
Try to avoid any detailing on the lower part of the shorts, things like frame, turn-ups, lots of detailing. So, these pockets are quite straight forward, but if you are particularly curvy on the back side, I would probably avoid going for very printed detailed pockets, with embroidery, diamonded, lots of attention here. If you are very curvy on the bottom half, I would try to keep it as plain and sleek as possible.
So the detailing and where the shorts end are keeper points. Another key point to bear in mind if you're curvy on the bottom half is the type of denim that you're looking for in shorts. So generally, we want denim that has some stretch in it.
Become an avid label reader when you're looking for denim shorts. I would look for, say, 2% elastane, you might even find shorts with 4% elastane. The key is that they've got some give and that they'll flow nicely over the hips and bottom and still comfortable for you to wear.
So, just recapping those tips for ladies who are curvy on the bottom, make sure that the shorts end at a flattering point of the leg, make sure that there is not much detailing around the hip area and around the bottom area. So I'd keep that quite plain, quite sleek, and the third top tip for choosing shorts for curvy women is to make sure that the denim has a little bit of give to it, a little bit of elastane, so that they are comfortable and flattering to wear. Now, if you are straight on the lower half, you can go for as much detailing around these areas as possible.
You can go for a stiffer kind of short, so you don't necessarily have to have the elastane in the shorts like the curvy bottom ladies do. You can go for much more detailing, bigger pockets, bigger turn ups, you can have the length up because generally, people who are straighter on the bottom, they can get away with wearing shorter shorts. So, different denim, detailing on the hip and bottom area and also, you might wear shorts, all ladies might wear shorts, at all times of the year, depending on how you style them up.
So, both straight bottom and curvy bottom ladies could wear a pair of denim shorts in the winter time, for instance. You might wear them with a pair of opaque tights together with some ankle boots or some court shoes. They are also great, obviously, for summer time and can become a staple of your summer wardrobe.
If you are going for your first pair of denim shorts, I would probably go for something that is mid blue. The darker the denim, it tends to look a little bit more formal, the lighter the denim, tipping also into the whites and very, very light color denims, may not be flattering if you are very curvy on the lower half, because it tends to draw the eye down. So, generally, a mid-blue tipping into dark would suit all skin types and all body shapes.
And those are a couple of tips for choosing and wearing denim shorts. .
