The temperature is rising and you’re tempted to slip on a pair of hotpants to battle the blistering heat, but you’re on the fence about your wardrobe choice. Are you walking a fine line by wearing these short-shorts or will you get a pass because hotpants are a fashion favorite this summer? Don’t worry; you’re not the only one who has a love/hate relationship with the trendy shorts. The teeny-tiny shorts join a long list of other trends that could be hard to pull off because you the run the risk of looking like a teenybopper, and you’ve already crossed over into your thirties.
Should there be an age limit on certain trends? Generally, I would disagree. I think a woman needs to feel good and look good without taking age into consideration.
But certain trends, like wearing hotpants, sheer blouses with only a bra underneath, or having your entire stomach exposed in a cutout dress, are arguably earmarked for the teenybopper set.
There’s a way to try these trends and still look sophisticated, no matter your age. Here are some tips:
1. If you want to wear a sheer top, try a complementary camisole instead of a matching bra.
2. If you want to rock out in a pair of hotpants, balance it with a less revealing top and lower heels.
3. If you want to wear a cutout dress that bares your entire stomach, don’t. Try a less revealing dress. A one-shoulder frock or dress with an open back could do the trick.
