Were shorts always so unflattering? I seem to have worn shorts in the past and not been completely horrified by my reflection, but now every time I put them on I take them right back off and put on a skirt. I would think it’s just me, but suddenly no one is really looking great in shorts. What is it about shorts that look so terrible? Pants look fine. But if you cut off a flattering pair of pants, I think they would suddenly be unflattering. Why?
Ok, and along the same lines, I keep seeing women wearing jeans that are cuffed to be capri pants, and it looks really cute. Do you need special jeans to do this, or can you do it with your regular jeans? Will it work with my flare legs? (Ok, I realize I could just put on my jeans and try this myself, but I figured you all would have some words of wisdom.) How big should the cuff be?
