Hi, I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style, and today I'm going to give you a couple of tips of how to wear shorts if you're bottom heavy. First, let's start with the shorts. The best thing that you want to do is start at the widest part of your body and go straight down from there. So, fit your hits and choose a short that's wider leg here. Something that's appropriate for this style of short is to go right above your knee or right at your knee. This is going to create a longer leaner version of your leg and I love this too because it has a pinstripe in it so up close it adds a nice vertical detail but far away, if you go five feet away, you won't even see the pinstripes so you can treat it as a neutral. To pair with it I went with a black simple tank here and a little overlay of this little jacket that has a nice detail up here. If you're bottom heavy, you want to create a little bit more drama up here and add a little poof to the shoulder 'cause the whole goal is to balance your overall figure. So if you're wider down here create some drama up here. This has a nice blank slate that you can do anything with. If you want to add a little detail in a necklace I would recommend going with a longer chunkier looking necklace 'cause what this does it creates, again, a vertical line down the center. So it's going to make you longer and leaner. Last but not least is the shoe. When you're wearing a longer short like this that's a little bit wider go with a wedge. This is going to give you a little bit of height and make your legs look longer and leaner but they're still going to be comfortable and easy to walk in. So as you can see, with a, if you're a little bit bottom heavy pick a wide leg short and then add a little bit of detail here up at the top and a little bit of detail here and it's going to balance out your overall figure. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style. Thanks for watching.
