Any woman can wear shorts—just skip the short-shorts. A great length for all: just above the knee. For weekend: Add style to basic denimTo cuff or not? It depends on your shape. Only cuff if you have small hips and thighs (it adds volume). Otherwise, avoid them (they can interrupt the line of your leg).
These shorts are totally work appropriate! Keep your look professional by adding pumps and a blazer. You can lose the jacket for after-work cocktails. Too-tight shorts are not a good look on anyone. The leg line should be tailored, but not clinging to the body.
The right shorts are perfect for evening as long as the rest of the ensemble says evening, too. Pair with a dressy heel and add sparkle with your top or accessories. Don't be afraid to wear white! One secret to doing it well? Nude underwear. And if your shorts are a sheer fabric, cut out the pockets (that's slimming, too).
