I barely wear shorts but based on the spirit of a new year and the extreme heat that Nairobi has to offer, I have decided that I will wear more shorts ( as well as other colors other than black). What are some of the things that you have planned to differently this year? It can be as simple as letting your hair grow out or something.
Most skinny people find it difficult to wear shorts especially if because they do not have brawny legs , however I would like to think that because if skinny legs some of us look really good in shorts. I digress. When you want to wear shorts here are some of the tips and things you need to consider:
How To Wear Shorts
- Wear the right cut. Shorts should be neither too long nor too short.
- Wear the same waist size as your trousers and use a belt.
- Leave your weekend shorts to the weekend.
- Wear a flattering fabric like khaki or denim.
- Pair shorts with the appropriate kind of shoes and socks.
For this look I decided to style a pair of white khaki shirts with a longline t-shirt and my Oswin sandals , a look perfect for the weekend, for the beach , for a poolside party and cocktails and mocktails in the afternoon at News Cafe.
When you decided to wear shorts especially those that are bright and stand out like baby blue , or pink or even yellow it is important to accessorize minimally to avoid a lot of attention and attraction. You can always use a Daniel Wellington or a Kapten and Son for this.
