DOS

• MIND THE HEIGHT Re­mem­ber that longer shorts cre­ate the ef­fect of shorter legs, while short shorts make your legs ap­pear longer, giv­ing the im­pres­sion of height.

• COLOR-BLOCK If you want to have a bit of fun with your wardrobe, pair brightly hued shorts with equally bright tops of a con­trast­ing color to cre­ate a stylish com­bi­na­tion.

• TUCK-IT IN (FOR LOW-WAISTED SHORTS ONLY If you’re wear­ing low-waisted shorts, tuck your shirt in to raise your waist­line and elon­gate your stom­ach.

DONT'S

• WEAR PRINTS FROM HEAD TO TOE Pat­terned shorts should never, ever be worn with a match­ing top. While it may look great on the run­way, it can come off as freaky on the streets.

• WEAR WHITE SOCKS Pick­ing the right pair of socks to go with your short can be the key to a per­fect look, but pulled-up white socks is a def­i­nite no-no.

• SHOW UP FOR WORK WITH ONE Un­less you work in the cre­ative part of the fash­ion in­dus­try or on the beach, wear­ing shorts on the job is more than just a huge fash­ion faux-pas.
