A more mature way of wearing denim shorts


Based on the past few days of weather you might think that blast of sunshine the week before was our summer and now its over again. But don’t worry, shorts season is on the horizon.

I LOVE summer; summer wardrobes, summer nights, and the summery weather. But with warm weather it does inevitably lead to one of the biggest issues* facing any girls above the age of 14 – how do we buy shorts that DON’T resemble underwear?

*biggest issues … debatable but you get the idea.

I’m not going to lie and say I’ve never turned up to V Festival – painted those classic fluorescent dots above my eye brows and put on my shortest shorts and a crop top. But now the time has come that I just don’t think that’s my vibe anymore. So what do I wear if I still want to wear shorts?

Now long shorts I find not at allll flattering so that’s not what I will be putting on this summer. And not to mention how uncomfortable are they!? So I grabbed this pair of French Connection shorts that I’ve actually had for years and I love the way they look. I’ve been researching what you would call this type of shorts – its culotte shorts fyi. So if you want ‘shorts that aren’t too short’ shorts then why not try the culotte style. 

I’ve linked some cute pairs I think you all might like, that are similar to mine.

The high waist is so flattering and it cuts you at just the right place, so hiding the upper thigh and lower tummy. Win win. I wore this with a ruffle blouse and OTK boots because summer here is so unpredictable and I think the boots make the outfit a lot more sophisticated and wearable. 

So if you too are stuck for how to wear shorts without looking like you’re in swimwear – don’t rule out shorts just yet. Change up the style. It doesn’t matter your age or shape, you’ll be able to find something that suits you. It’s about accentuating your good bits/the places you feel confident with and finding ways to work with the other bits!
