Fatshion Faceoff: Shorts

How quickly these Fatshion Faceoff posts come around! This week's challenge item is shorts!


Shorts: Torrid
Jacket: City Chic
Shirt: Supre
Leggings and Shoes: BigW


This was a really interesting post for me. If you've been to my blog before, you have probably noticed I am a total dress and skirt girl. I think the last time I wore shorts was.....well if you exclude my swim-shorts I don't even know! Probably when we were trekking in Thailand a few years ago.


Even though I don't really wear them, I actually have a few different pairs of shorts! Isn't it silly how we collect clothes sure that we will wear them 'one day'. After trying a few casual denim pairs, I decided that they just don't suit me and the best way to style some for this post was to dress them up. I paired this grey structured pair with this flowy tank (which I snapped up from Caitlin) and roughed it up with my leather jacket.


I wore the outfit out to a date night with Ben. Originally I had the tank tucked in, but I think it looked heaps cooler un-tucked. Which do you like better?? Also, being so chilly I popped my favorite tights under them; mind you they are so short I would probably always wear stockings underneath! Overall I felt pretty rocking in this outfit!

I can't wait to see what the other Fatshion Faceoff babes come up with this week!

  4. Ooh you look so great in shorts! And I prefer the untucked look. I'm so self-conscious about my legs and am such a dress girl that I rarely wear shorts either.

  7. This is quite different to your normal style but I really like it - a little bit rocker chic! I am always way too chicken to wear shorts - I don't know the last time I wore a pair, perhaps 1993 at school :P
