Last year, I would have never worn a pair of shorts...let alone allowed myself to be photographed in them. However, this past summer has been a game-changer for me. After a couple of 90 plus degree days, I decided that I needed to get over my fear of shorts stat.
Below are a couple of tips:
1. Determine your body type
There are several websites out there which are helpful for determining your specific body type. I have an athletic build with broad shoulders, long limbs, and narrower hips. After figuring out my body type, I did some searches on both Google and Pinterest to find out which celebrities are shaped similarly to me.
2. Go out and try on a couple different styles of shorts
In my case, I went into a couple of different stores and tried on knee-length shorts, mid-length shorts, and short shorts. In the end, the mid-length shorts won the day. They were the most flattering to my body and they offered me wardrobe versatility.
