Ladies, let’s face it: high-waisted denim shorts don’t look good on most people (and by most people I’m talking anyone over 110 lbs or shorter than 5’9). Lucky for us shorties, there’s the culotte. Not only comfortable but also super flattering. The key is proportion, since the shorts are usually baggier, keep the top more fitted. Also, if you have short legs, pair a higher hemline with heels or wedges. Another nice thing about this 90s trend is that you can virtually get away with any color or pattern, just make sure the fabric is lightweight. Plllease please please refrain from the gaucho look by keeping the hemline either right above the knee (see below) or ankle length. I love the way this blogger paired them with a just-as-lightweight and sophisticated blouse.
