Wear shorts

Wear shorts all year long!“Jeans cutoffs are about as American as the 4th of July” was the first description of cutoffs I heard arriving to US. I was surprised because I remember wearing cutoffs since forever. I made my first denim cutoffs in the winter of ’93. The heavy metal was growing deep into my heart therefore my clothing style has changed accordingly. I went to the store with my father to buy the perfect pair of jeans for cutting and drawing on. My father had two left hands and I don’t have any patience and imagine how did our jeans project end up… in the trash, and my mom cut an old pair of jeans, made the fringes and drawn all the rock-ish things I wanted.

Over the years I’ve developed a passion for shorts. I had worn every type of shorts that you can imagine, from the blue jeans cutoffs, to the extremely distressed ones, from the extremely short shorts to the very tight ones and so on. In the high school my love for doom dark metal was blooming, so was my love for leather shorts. I had multiple colors but all were short – mini.

During the first years of University I was bouncing between my beautiful white fabric ones and velvet ones.
Wearing them in the spring and summer was not enough so after some research and testing what’s what and how is how I found the perfect mix for the autumn.

A sweater or a blazer styled with a pair of shorts made from thicker fabric in a darker color and with a longer hemline and I had the perfect autumn mix 🙂

Tips for how to wear shorts

For a athletic constitution choose Bermuda or a pleated shorts to give your lower body the necessary volume
For skinny figures knee length horizontal lines shorts are perfect or if you prefer leather go for textured ones.
Petite girls can easily wear cuffed shorts with platforms or heels.
Curvy girls should avoid thigh hugging shorts and look for wide leg ones and a midi length.

Below is how I wear my Cuffed Herringbone shorts in a more casual way, on the beach with sport shoes. Another approach of shorts and beach here ( blue jeans shorts ).

It was a cold day and I’ve decided to see the ocean. Hopped in the car and went to Santa Cruz to see the Natural Bridges State. It’s a beautiful beach with gorgeous scenery : “This beach, with its famous natural bridge, is an excellent vantage point for viewing shore birds, migrating whales, and seals and otters playing offshore. Further along the beach, tidepools offer a glimpse of life beneath the sea. Low tides reveal sea stars, crabs, sea anemones, and other colorful ocean life.  The park also includes a large area of coastal scrub and grasslands, with bright native wildflowers in the spring.  Moore Creek flows through the park, forming freshwater wetlands and a salt marsh before it reaches the sea.” (source)

    …pe aia de catifea despre care vorbesti nu mi-i amintesc…aia albi in schimb…e una dintre imaginile care imi vin in minte atunci cand ma gandesc la tine, cea de atunci, din timpul facultatii.. 😛
    Modelul acesta un pic largut iti vine foarte bine, astept si eu toamna pentru a purta din nou ciorapii mei mati si jeansii scurti. Imi place mult combinatia! 🙂
