Petite Women’s Shorts
Are you shopping around for petite women’s shorts and not sure where to begin? Whether you are simply investing in one new pair of shorts or you are looking to update your entire collection of shorts for petite women with brand-new pieces, the shopping process should be the same. Following this handy little guide will help make the experience far less overwhelming and much more fruitful.
Start by making a list of the women’s petite shorts. It could be anything: athletic shorts, denim cutoffs, linen shorts, you name it. Just have a solid idea of what you need before you start looking. This will help you narrow your search and focus only on products that meet your criteria.
Along with thinking about the type of petite shorts for women you want, consider why you would be wearing them. Is it for an upcoming beach vacation, for hitting the gym, or just having cute shorts to wear through the summer? Consider what it is you spend the bulk of your day doing and why you would need the shorts.
Shorts for Petite Women
Start getting specific. You know your style better than anyone. Take denim shorts, for example. There are so many different cuts and styles within this category. It could be high-waisted shorts in a denim cutoff style or cuffed shorts in dark wash denim or black denim shorts. When you are thinking about the specifics of the shorts, also think about how many shorts you need. This will help you determine which short style is best for you.
The next step is the most important: trying the shorts on! Not only should the shorts be in a style you love, but they should also look fabulous on you (but you won’t know if they do until you try them on first). When trying on shorts, think about the different tops and other pieces you might wear with them. Do the shorts you are thinking of buying go well with existing pieces in your closet, or would you need to buy new pieces to go with the shorts? Form-fitting, spandex women's athletic shorts, for example, look great with a ’90s-style sweatshirt and a pair of white sneakers (the Princess Diane look). In addition to a flattering fit, the shorts should be comfy! Why waste money on shorts that look super cute but are unbearably uncomfortable to wear? Comfort should be as high of a priority as style. Factors that will influence comfort include size, cut, and, most importantly, fabric.
