I mentioned yesterday that one of my favorite blog posts every month is my Favorites series, but my Style for Every Body series is quickly becoming a favorite. This is our 3rd month to share it and next weekend we are meeting to shoot the next 3 months. Crazy, but true! Sharing items of clothing that work for different body types is super important to me, because I myself don’t fit into a lot of the popular trends and such. Also, size inclusivity is something that is finally getting some air time and I want to help contribute to the cause. Everyone deserves to feel cute and look great and guess what? Everyone isn’t the same dang size!
This month we are sharing or favorite shorts. Read on to find your new favorite part of cut offs!
Let’s start with me… Lauren from LMents of Style
I’m wearing: Madewell Shorts
What size I am wearing: 28
Where I like to shop for shorts: If you would have asked me last year, I would have said Agolde shorts. I still really like those for when I want those loose, vintage vibes (I wear a 29 in them - 0 stretch), buuuut these Madewell ones are what dreams are made of. I love that they are high waisted and they fit me perfectly, just like Madewell jeans! I also own a couple pair from American Eagle. Those are cute, budget friendly options! Side note - just like you can bring in a pair of old jeans to recycle and get $20 off a pair of new jeans at Madewell… you can do the same thing and get $10 a pair of shorts. #heckyes ALSO, these are fair-trade approved!
How tall I am: 5’7.5”
What body type I identify with: Regular length, Pear shaped
Meredith from The Healthy Curve
How cute are these army-esque shorts on Meredith?! They fit her vibe (and her body!) 100%! I love seeing all o our styles played out perfectly. Check out more about her on her blog The Healthy Curve and her instagram page.
Meredith is wearing: Modcloth Shorts (s/o)
What size she is wearing: 1X
How tall she is: 5’4”
What body type she identifies with: Petite, Curvy, Hourglass
Ginger from The Ginger Marie Blog
Ginger is our sporty girl, so I loved that she went with a more athletic vibe, that would be 100% acceptable at brunch or a day on the go! Learn more about her on her website The Ginger Marie Blog and don’t forget to check out her hilarious Instagram Stories!
What size she is wearing: 2X
How tall she is: 5’11”

Kileen from Cute and Little
Kileen is wearing: BlankNYC Astor Distressed Shorts
What size she is wearing: 24
Where she likes to shop for shorts: She loves to shop for shorts at American Eagle, Express or BlankNYC. Personally, I love BlankNYC, but have only purchased jackets, skirts and dresses from them. I 100% need to check out their shorts!!
How tall she is: 5’0”
What body type she identifies with: Short, Petite, Athletic Build
What’s your favorite short brand? Do tell, because I’m always looking to learn something and/or find a new brand I love. I haven’t tried any of their apparel yet, but a brand I’m crushing hard on right now is Oliver Logan. Check them out if you can! I hope these shorts help you stay cool AND look cool in the coming summer months ;)
