But before I dig into how shorts and shoes play off one another and affect body proportions, one quick note:
Yes, you can wear shorts. I don’t care how old you are or how much you weigh or what your legs look like. If it’s hot and you want to, you can throw on a pair of shorts and wear them to your heart’s content. Whoever said that certain body types and age groups should avoid shorts is a Clothing Tyrant and should be overthrown in a bloodless coup. If you like shorts and feel comfortable in ‘em, wear ‘em.* Find a style that suits you, and sport them all summer long. The end.
