OutFit: High-waisted shorts
If you love the retro pin-up girl style, why not try a pair of high-waisted shorts? The shorts are easier to wear than high-waisted jeans and work on more body types.
The trickiest part of the trend is finding the right fit.
If you have an hourglass figure, opt for a shorter, pleated style to elongate your frame.
Flat front shorts with a back zipper that are longer and fuller will add curves.
Choose a fitted top to tuck in, then add a vest or long necklace and heels to keep the look long and lean.
It takes some time to find just the right thing to pair with high-waisted shorts, but once you find it they are kind of amazing.
