Ah, spring, when a young man’s fancy turns to love, and a woman’s fancy turns to shorts. Or perhaps not so much her fancy, as most women I know seem to avoid shorts like the plague. Still, as the weather warms, it is hard not to think about wearing shorts, either because you love them or because you’ve given them up and are wondering if just maybe this is the year you will bring them back.
I have no overriding opinion about shorts, but I do have some strategies for looking your best in them. The first strategy is to shop now for shorts — yes, now! Today, before the weather is hot and the shorts — or at least the really cute ones, in the right sizes — are all gone. I know that some of you are still digging your cars out in the morning, but the retail industry says that summer is here, at least the wardrobe part of it, and if you wait until the actual change in weather, you will have waited too long.
