Ah, the short… So easy to get so very wrong. But we shouldn’t live in fear of shorts – a good pair can still form part of your summer wardrobe. The key, as I said last year in my first post about shorts, is to find a length that flatters you – and usually that excludes hotpants. It also helps to choose a dark and firm denim that will make you look smaller and also suck you in a tiny bit. And of course, a high waist is always always always going to be more flattering than low-rise.
There’s a few good pairs on the high street this summer, so here’s my top 3 dark denim high-waisted shorts and if you stay tuned to the end you’ll see which pair I invested in!
|Dorothy Perkins – rinse wash high waist short, £23|
|Moto Indigo High Waisted Shorts, £32|
|Oasis 50s pin-up short, £35|
And the winner is… well, how could I resist turn-ups!
