I don’t know about you, but I really like them. I’m also jealous of young girls, who can wear them anywhere, anytime, and not only to the beach. With mature age comes a certain risk to wearing denim shorts, because the body changes and legs become less firm. Thighs become a problem area and we simply don’t feel as confident. While wearing shorts requires keeping up your physical shape and gorgeous legs, there are some tricks and combinations that can help achieve a beautiful look.
I chose some tips for you and I hope you’ll find them useful. I follow these myself and I have to say I’m very pleased with the outcome. I’m not going to write about how there is some exercise required to keep your legs in shape, because you already know that. So put some effort into shaping your muscles, and the rest will follow.
This is a good trick, because a nice tan helps disguise some imperfections, such as stretch marks or uneven skin. But mind the quality of the product you use, make sure you use a quality one, otherwise you’ll look blotchy; use some peeling before you apply the product to make the skin as smooth as possible. Self-tanning foams are another worthwhile option, because the application process is easier!
Lace-trimmed denim shorts
Cotton lace makes the shorts look substantially longer, which is in itself a good thing. Additionally, its fashionable and looks sort of elegant, although elegant is a relative term in this context, because denim shorts belong more to the casual side of things.
Larger size shorts
This is another smart way to gain an inch of fabric lengthwise. The waistline will also slightly drop, which means you won’t have the now so fashionable high-waist shorts, but that’s ok. The model quickly becomes more comfortable and more useful, especially with a white Boho blouse.
Make them yourself
Simply take a pair of old jeans, put them on and use a marker to indicate the length; then cut, leaving at least two inches of excess material to either sew the hem or fray it the way we’ve seen it this summer, so you get a short frayed trim in the front. If you opt for the make-them-yourself model, you’ll undoubtedly get the perfect length, even if it’s mid-thigh, why not. You can also play around with white jeans, which are always very fashionable.
Not too ripped or full of holes
Always keep in mind that small holes or rips can get larger, and then we’re no longer happy. Shorts with patches are a good option, so that it’s not your skin that’s visible underneath the rip, but rather denim. One more thing, worth paying attention to are the front pockets-make sure they’re not visible, because it’s highly improper to wear shorts so short that they peek out in the front. I suppose I don’t have to add that the buttocks should stay hidden, do I?
Roll them up and opt for a blazer
If you have a longer model, make-them-yourself type, you can roll them up as far as you see appropriate. Then, style them with a plain white T-shirt and blazer, making a perfect look for a stroll around town. This style always looks youthful and lovely.
They’re a smart choice, because they make the legs look slimmer and better. There is nothing worse than a model so tight it leaves marks on your skin, making it obvious that everything is just too tight. Even better, if the shorts’ legs are A-line shaped; there are quite a few around, but you have to try them on. So, if they’re a size larger, A-line model, and not too ripped, you got it right!
