Fashion 118: Short shorts!

Shorts - should I, would I, could I? Trust us, you don't have to be as thin as a whippet to rock a short. This summer, there's a style for every figure...

  

High waisted
Wearing a high waist style is a quick way to lengthen your limbs, as the extra height draws the eye up. Petites like Becki Newton can wear a longer shape - as long as they're neatly fitted.
Straight
It's not the shorts - it's what you wear with them. Mischa Barton's plain black bottom half fades into the background when teamed with a stripy tee and bold jacket. Great for pear shapes.

  

Tailored Denim
Indigo denim is a curvy girl's best friend. Just ensure your shorts fit - Beyonce's stand away from her thighs, so they don't dig in or look too tight.
Scalloped
Shorts with a soft scalloped hem can do fashion magic and make tomboy thighs seem more rounded. We heart Kate Bosworth's Chloe version.
