Summers are here and all the short, skimpy clothes are out of the cupboard. They are cool as well as comfortable for the season. I am sure a pair of shorts would have certainly made the rounds of your wardrobe. And the good news is that high waist shorts are back in vogue! From celebrities like Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra sporting them recently, why should you be left behind!

But the real trick lies in selecting the right piece for yourself. Let us explore some of the ways:

Go for a shorter waist height if you have a short torso

This will ensure that your torso doesn’t look unbalanced and unnaturally small. If one has a short torso and busty body, then look for shorts that extend past the hip bone. Even mid-rise shorts will look the same as the high waisted ones!

Display a little leg!

If your high waisted shorts show more of leg, then they are better but make sure that nothing more than that is seen out of the shorts! If you can see the interior lining of your pockets from beneath the bottom hem of your shorts, it means that a longer shorts are required!

Consider the overall fit

While there is no rule of thumb while buying a pair of high waisted shorts, trying them once to look at the overall fit is the best thing one can do.

Go for the right color and pattern

One can go for the standard denim or for bolder colors like yellow, red or brown. Even patterns like polka dots, animal prints and Hawaiian prints can also be tried depending on one’s tastes.

High waisted shorts are ideal when going out for a beach party or day out with friends. A bike ride with your boyfriend will look extra flirty when done with a high waisted short. Just make sure to wear them with the right accessories and with a dose of that extra confidence. Selecting the right top also makes a big difference. Let us see how:
