Q: I never have much luck with shorts, but it’s hot outside and I need a couple pairs. I am a fairly small person (5’5”, 130 pounds), but am definitely pear-shaped. Every pair of shorts is either too short, too tight, or too long. Do you have any recommendations?
A: Like you, I am always in search of the perfect pair of summer shorts! One of my favorite brands is KUT from the Kloth, and we carry some great boyfriend shorts of theirs that are a good length and have a super-flattering cut. Bermuda shorts are another option, as their length has a slimming, leg-lengthening effect.
Higher-waisted shorts can also work well on pear-shaped women, as they highlight their signature slim waist. Whichever style you choose, go with a solid, darker-colored short and pair them with a printed, lighter, or brighter top to draw the eye upward and balance out the look.
