Love Your Legs!!
Summer and shorts go hand in hand! No excuses now… time to love your legs, slap on some bronzer or tinted moisturiser and get those legs out there!
A simple trick to dress shorts ‘up’, is to add a lightweight summer blazer. This silk blazer above, is a Nina Maya fave.
Hamming it up!! Twisted hair, Ellery shades, sass and bide singlet, Leona Edmiston bag, snakeskin belt and gold dog tag.
The oatmeal, linen shorts above, are from Biasa Bali. They are bloomer shaped and are adjustable. They can be pulled up or down at the sides, with ribbons. Shorts send many women into a ‘knee’ or ‘ankle’ frenzy!! “Gaaah… I’m allergic to shorts,” one of my clients told me! My response… “Love your legs!!” It’s worth investing the time and energy to find the perfect pair of shorts… no matter your age or size, there IS a pair of shorts for everyone. It’s simple if you follow these 5 easy steps…
# Short and tight shorts are out of bounds for most of us. Definitely for the young ones!
# Try a bigger size or two. If you’re a 10, then try a 12 and a 14. Belt them and sling low on the hips so they’re longer, baggier and comfy.
# Try long ‘walk’ shorts such as Country Road or Sportcraft ‘Eva’ if you haven’t worn shorts for awhile.
# If cuffed, then unpick the sides and turn the cuff down for extra length.
# Wear with confidence!!
Long or short denim.
Black or white linen by Country Road. All worn on the hips and a size bigger than I usually require. Roll up or roll down.
So, time to go hunting in your wardrobe for that hidden pair from last year or time for a shopping outing with ‘SHORTS’ at the top of your list. Either way… dare to wear and smile if they stare!!
