We all agree that our culture has in a way been very confining when it comes to women’s dressing and no we love the Umushananas and all the traditional outfits that we cling to as a societal hand me downs.

However when our society opens doors to even more wardrobe possibilities we all hurry to engage the possibilities.

It’s a fact that there were days that trousers were associated with men and “loose women”. Those days, thanks to God, are long gone.

Days when outfits defined one’s sexuality have been replaced by more permissible ones that allow a decent woman to walk down Kigali streets in shorts.

Yes, you heard me right. Shorts are now okay to be worn outside the confinement of one’s bedroom and though we once only wore them to bed we now can proudly walk into church and feel nothing short of beautiful. Do I hear,” hurry”?

Well, it is true shorts are a new trend and we are all happy to catch on because we have waited eagerly for the day when it would be okay to wear them. The day fortunately is here.

The truth about shorts is that there is one for everyone depending on the personal taste and preference.

Shorts come in different lengths that come from knee-high to just below the hips. The key is to identify the look that would flatter you more and the occasion that one is set for.

Sports shorts would take you from a party to an evening on the rave with your girls whereas well cut khakis and silky tops can take you from an office to a dinner.

Pairing your shorts with a strap sandal, a wedge makes the look even hotter.

Shorts matched up with suits are also in and are ideal for office wear.

Shorts should be matched up with short tops or small t-shirts accentuating your legs and hips.

There is a new heels and shorts craze going on but this should not stop you from matching them with flats as it still works.

The secret of wearing shorts right is by identifying the right size for you.

With shorts, one is always forced to go a size up as a too tight one might destroy the idea of classy we all aim to attain.

The waist should be somewhat flexible so as to flatter your belly and accentuate your flawless waist.
