I have spin class (and my ah-mazing teacher/drill sergeant/fellow Jay-Z enthusiast, Nichelle) to thank for giving me the gumption to wear short shorts. There are certain items in your closet you can onnnly wear with Spanx – or when you’re working out – and short cutoffs (veering on Kate Moss-esque hot pants) definitely fall into the latter category. As do low-rise jeans.
I tend to be really fickle about pieces – like short shorts – whose wearage is predicated on how I’m feeling about my body that day/how much attention I consciously wanna draw. Subsequently, I purposefully choose to splurge on super classic, versatile pieces (like this blue Moschino capelet – six years old and still beloved;) and skimp on pieces I feel ambivalent about – like shorts that border on hot pants. These denim shorts are actually from Forever 21! SCORE.
