and flattering. Ingeniously loosely skimming the hips and upper thigh (a part of the body many women would appreciate not to be accentuated), this short shows off the skinniest part of the legs- and who's complaining about that? It was definitely a trend that took myself a second to warm up to, but I have to admit the comfort and versatility of shorts like these simply can't be beat! Belted or smocked, printed or solid, high-waisted or sitting just below the waist, there are plenty of options to keep you happy (I've even spotted a denim pair or two...may have to think about that one...but there's some more motivation to go ahead and throw those daisy dukes out the window sister)! Bonus: all of the above looks (From the top- Tibi, James Jeans, and Alice + Olivia) are available on Piperlime which means free shipping and free returns, a literal "You really, really have nothing to lose" policy!
