I received a request from a friend the other, to do a post about shorts. Her exact words were, ” How does a classy, fabulous, grown woman -not a 17 yr old- find shorts to wear?” (Love that!)
It had honestly never really occurred to me that other woman have a hard time with wearing shorts. I mean, I wear them all the time!
Then I came to the stark realization that maybe I’m just a hoochie. 😉
I started thinking about lengths and if there’s a general rule of thumb to go by. After browsing through hundreds of pairs of shorts, I decided that 3.5 – 5 inches is a pretty good gauge for length. There are of course 9 inch shorts, which will hit about mid thigh or right above the knee (depending on your height) but if you are looking for a feminine short-short and want to steer clear of the coochie-cutters, 3.5 – 5 inches is your best bet.
This is of course a totally subjective topic, and really depends entirely on a few different factors, including the occasion and your own level of comfort.
What are your thoughts on shorts? Do you wear them? Do you think there’s a certain length that you must wear after a certain age? Curious what you have to say, so please share in the comments below!
