  2. Go for Vertical Stripes (stay away from horizontal stripes)
  3. Pick out Uncuffed Short Shorts 

If you want to wear pattern-ed shorts try to wear heels, wedges or pointed-toe flats to give a taller illusion! As a general rule of thumb, short women can wear short shorts (pretty much regular length on us), vertical stripes which help elongate legs, and uncuffed shorts (cuffing, similar to horizontal stripes, can make women look wider and draw attention to our short legs)! Don’t forget to go for the 2016 Spring Trends colors (olives, cobalt, corals) and styles (lace, ruffles, knits and metallics).
