Fashionably comfortable with dressy shorts

While I’m not so keen on mini skirts, I’m perfectly fine with wearing shorts. In fact, I used to go out in them before I lost too much weight. That was two years ago. Now, I only use them at home because those in my closet are so loose and ill fitting, and I don’t want to be seen in them anywhere. So I’ve been looking for some smart dressy shorts but can’t seem to find anything yet to suit my fancy. Some of the designs are decent but they’re way too short for my modesty. I know hot pants and boy shorts are in, but they’re certainly not my cup of tea.

Anyway, shorts don’t just go with tees. You can get pretty dressy with shorts if you combine with fashionable tops and accessories, like these few Korean fashion inspirations from Compagna and Yetts. Some of them look pretty hot! (Or maybe it’s the model!)

So are shorts your kind of thing? And what do you wear them with? I haven’t been looking hard enough and need some help here – where would you recommend me to get dressy shorts in Singapore with a decent price tag?

    Hi Sesame (“,)
    I did an entry on how i dress up in shorts here:

    thought i’d share the link with u instead of describing what i wear the with. I love wearing shorts, and you’re right that we can get dressy in shorts too :p

    Dressy shorts look so effortlessly cool. I feel a little self conscious though since I’m not such a slim girl :p

    Like you, I also prefer dressy shorts to mini skirts. And I prefer shorts that covers down to mid-thigh at least…something like culottes.

    I love shorts and wear them only at home….because I would not want to shock the general public with my thunder thighs!!!

  6. sesame says:

    Haha…first time I come across this description – thunder thighs! ?

  7. sesame says:

    Those would be a little broader? I also prefer slightly longer ones. A bit shy…

  8. sesame says:

    Maybe something a bit longer would make you less conscious?

  9. sesame says:

    Nice combi! I need to get some shorts!

  10. sesame says:

    Ah…why? Because you’re slim?

    I can’t wear shorts except at home. My knees and thighs are HUGE.

    I will wear 3/4 pants which cover until the knees.

  13. sesame says:

    I can’t picture huge thighs on you really…

    I never really like 3/4 pants but started wearing one lately. It’s convenient but I don’t quite like the look on me – I don’t look good in pants.

  14. sesame says:

    I can’t wear skinny jeans…what a shame. ?

  18. sesame says:

    Shorts are all over now…I saw some decent designs at Topshop, at Zara and G2000.

    Hi, I noticed that you lost much weight? as you do that? I am with more than 10 kilos and want to lose quickly, you could tell me how did you lose weight? please

    At one stage, I ate quite a bit of pineapples and also drank green tea every day. I noticed I lost weight thereafter. But it could also be hormonal.
