Calling my own SHOrTS

So it's been really long since we last spoke ehh! We are trying our best to keep up  but alas! The great news is our website is up and coming & so is our blog being revamped really soon so you can view our work and we shall start taking customised order for dresses and bags. Well for now it's too soon to reveal every little detail.
Coming to the blogpost With the arrival of summers and that humid in betweens, for the first time I'm wearing Amydus for a blog post(talk about being Brand Endorsement).
Shorts are pretty much a big no -no on every curvy fashionistas list.It was mine too trust me until I acquired the right way to wear it .Yes there's always a way you can work it for your body type.An article I came across on WIKIHOW(I love how can talk to it without being judged) and it has an answer for just about everything.
*Do you feel exposed when wearing shorts? Do you feel like everyone is looking at your seemingly horrible looking legs? Here are some steps to help you throw off those jeans and strut your stuff!*
Now when it comes to buying the perfect pair of shorts for Plus size Divas
Let's talk  your proportions to select the right style for your body type:
Consider your height: Longer shorts create the impression of shorter legs, while short shorts lengthen the leg, giving the impression of height. Play it safe. Women of most heights can find stylish and flattering shorts that hit around the mid-thigh.
Ø  Consider the fit: Shorts that flare out toward the bottom, rather than hugging the thigh, are flattering for petite girls and curvy women alike. Long styles like mid-thigh shorts or Bermudas are best, while taller women might find longer shorts more appropriate.
Ø  Buy shorts that extend past the hip, but not quite up to the narrowest part of your waist. These are sometimes called "mid-rise" shorts and can be more flattering.
Ø  Color-block. Pair brightly colored shorts with contrasting brightly colored tops to create a stylish look. Work within the same intensity palate, pairing pastels or neutral colors, say, and create a simple elegant look with shorts, appropriate especially for the summer.
Ø  We've real dearth of options when it comes to buying shorts but fret not street side thrift shops are here to offer you quite the unexpected after relentless digging. Online portals like stalkbuylove.com,asos are a few options for a good fitted shorts. And if all fails when is your local darzi(tailor) is going to give you that custom fit.

I'm personally a fan of prints but my lower half being even heavier I opted for an opaque black shorts from OLD NAVY with two formal Pussy-bow shirts from AMYDUS. Remember You want to accentuate your best features and create an  impression of legs that last a mile !

I hope you have a fair idea by now don't forget to accessorize your look keeping in mind ur personality.I Would love to see your take on shorts,send us pictures videos.I will see you soon in my next post!
