Is it a good idea to wear denim shorts and a denim shirt in one look? Isn’t it a bit overloaded?
Double denim is a tricky beast, but it’s also a hot trend with a long history. Before you start your adventure with it, kick off with looks which incorporate two different shades, like white denim shorts and a chambray shirt for example, or black rugged shorts, a stylish trucker jacket and a plain cotton tee.

How to choose denim shorts which flatter the booty?
Not all denim shorts are created equal. Some look great and accentuate the bottom, others make it appear too big or sloppy. The key aspect to take into account is the proportion and position of the back pockets and the shape of the yoke. Opt for the upward arc, inverted yoke or soft V-shape which bring out the natural shape of the butt and accentuate its curves. Big pockets which fall below the bottom line of the butt will make it look heavier and less pert.
What’s a snow wash?

I’d like to wear denim shorts to work. What style would be a good idea?
The secret to wearing denim shorts to work is to choose the ideal pair that corresponds to the environment and looks professional.

The smartest shorts sit right above or below your kneecap, so don’t be tempted to go shorter or you might look unprofessional. To make the ensemble more pulled together and smart, pair the shorts with a button-down, a tailored blazer and a leather belt.
I’m pear-shaped. What cut shorts would make me look flattering?
Pear-shaped ladies, those with a narrow waist and more shape around the butt and hips, should avoid loose shapeless shorts with too much fabric. Much better options are tailored chino-type shorts which keep the shape and have clean lines. Also, make good use of colors and remember that dark-colored bottoms will make you appear smaller in the butt department and draw eyes upwards, especially when you pair them with bright tops.
I love the rocker style. How to incorporate denim shorts into it?
There’s nothing easier than that! Just pair the denim shorts with a flannel shirt and tuck it effortlessly into them.

When temps go up, trade the flannel shirt for a loose fit tee with a rock-style print and you’re ready to go!
