Shorts are super intimidating to me because, let’s face it, a lot of styles are super short and I’m a little too old (and curvy) for booty shorts. And if shorts are on the longer side I fear that I’m going to look stumpy due to my short gams or just frumpy in general. I tend to look for shorts that could almost pass as a skirt because then I know the length will work.
I found these leopard shorts at Zara in the beginning of the season on sale so they are long gone but I found a very similar style below (although I hate to say the price point is not the same.) I love how polished the print is and how the black waist band breaks up the pattern. My knee jerk reaction to styling leopard is to wear it with black and lots of it. However, I wanted to make sure this outfit read springy so instead I decided to wear a white blouse. It kept the outfit light and airy and definitely had a much more feminine feel than it would have if I wore all black.
