It’s summer time, which means that we’ll be wearing clothes that expose as much skin as possible for practical and aesthetic reasons.
For us women, it summer means that we can wear pretty dresses and sexy shorts and skirts, and if you were committed to exercising through the winter season, you’ll be happy and prepared to show off your gorgeous physique.
I would like to narrow down into mini skirts and shorts because, dear ladies, I have a fashion bone to pick. See, I believe in something called mini skirt and shorts etiquette because when it comes to wearing short garments, there’s a thin line between looking sexy and looking trashy or inappropriate.
This has nothing to do with policing women’s bodies by dictating what should be worn, but rather, it has everything to do with shedding some light on the fact that what you wear portrays a certain image of you, so you want to make sure that what you give out to the world is positive and healthy as it can only be good for you.
So ladies, as much as mini skirts and shorts are sexy, wearing something that rides under your bum is quite tacky and should be kept for private wear. This goes back to the art of allure in fashion, where you reveal just enough but not all to create a sexy yet sophisticated look. When you throw it all for the world to see, it takes away from being pretty and stylish.
Choose modern cuts and designs when picking out a mini skirt or shorts to wear. There are some classic pieces, like denim shorts, that will never go out of style and look great with any contemporary additions. Wearing something that outdated also makes you look tacky.
It’s important to dress for your body. Not every skirt or pair of shorts will look good on you, so whenever you pick out something to wear, be completely honest about how it looks on you.
Also, make sure that you wear the correct underwear. You’ll never go wrong with seamless underwear as they don’t create the horrid panty line, and they’re comfortable to wear.
Shaving your legs is always a good idea because it makes your legs pop by creating a smooth and polished look.
Remember, mini skirts and shorts are meant to look sexy and are meant to accentuate your best features, not to make you look tacky and style-less.
So do take these points into consideration as you rock your best look this summer 🙂
