Short season is here. May the good Lord give me strength and a cellulite free Summer.
I don't wear shorts. I'm afraid that I could end up looking like Miss El-No and her overly short shorts. You see, each one of us has a magical zone on our legs- a place where shorts and skirts should fall. Go too short and you end up looking like a tropical hooker; too long and you're part of the FLDS.
This "end zone" for hems is different for all of us and is mainly determined by leg shape. Most woman with a shapelier thigh look best with a short/skirt the ends slightly north of the knee (right before the thigh widens). This provides the illusion that your leg stays slim all the way up. Miss El-No didn't get the memo.
J. Crew understands that shorts aren't a one size fits all operation. If I was going to wear shorts, I'd buy them here. These are some of my favsies:
Great Gams: 3" short in Tiki print $65
Model Momma: 5" short in Neon Pink $45
Relaxing Poolside: 3" Beach short $59.50
Bitchin' Bermudas: 9" short in Antique Paisely $69.50
