Shop The Perfect Summer Shorts For Your Body Type

Too often we come across the dilemma of how to dress our muscular calves, or how to elongate our legs. It's much easier in the wintertime to wear head to toe black and cover it all up with a big comforter/coat. These days we choose between Bermudas and culottes, short shorts or skorts - the options are overwhelming, and we have to remind ourselves the simple rules to dressing our specific body type. Shorts are a necessity during New York summers, and tank tops or midriffs are back. Exposing the legs is a delicate act - do it bravely and with confidence, keeping in mind the shapes you create and the lines you break.
